When Car Recalls Happen

Every now and then, there is a vehicle that comes out that subsequently gets recalled. This occurs when there is some major defect in the vehicle and the manufacturer decides to request everyone who has bought the vehicle to return it. The defect is typically safety-related. If you happen to have a vehicle with a safety defect that has been recalled, then you can take the following action.

In order to know what to do next, the first thing that needs to happen is that you receive a recall letter. This will list the defect and then give you the instructions on what to do next.

In many cases, you just have to call your dealer in order to get the vehicle repaired. There is typically a time limit on when to get the vehicle repaired depending on the part that is considered defective. It is important to get it repaired within the time limit.
