Your Guide to Handling an Auto Recall

shifterAuto recalls have been occurring for years, but if you’ve never been personally impacted by a recall, you may not be sure how to handle it when your car does become part of the next recall announcement. Considering the fact that the reason for a recall may impact your safety and complicate your ability to pursue legal action against your car manufacturer in the event of an accident, it is very important to understand the implications of a recall and be prepared to act accordingly.

Defining a Car Recall

Just like Perdue Chicken recently recalled a number of its chicken products due to concerns of contamination based upon reports of customers falling ill, an automobile recall is announced anytime the car manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a specific car model has a defect that impacts safety or restricts compliance with federal safety standards. The recall is meant to inform drivers that their cars must receive service attention to repair or replace the defect in question. Take note that the majority of car recalls do not result in the entire vehicle being replaced.

How Will You Know Your Car Has Been Recalled?

Thanks to the Internet, recall notices can be quickly found on the NHTSA website, social media, and news sites. However, your car manufacturer is required to send you a recall letter to formally announce the recall. This letter will give you a description of the defect, the hazard caused by the problem and injuries that could result, any potential warning signs to recognize the problem is occurring, how the manufacturer will resolve the defect, and how you should proceed.

The most common instructions will tell you to head to your local dealer and make a repair appointment. Don’t worry, you won’t need to pay anything out of pocket! Keep on the lookout for time limits; tires problems, for example, must be resolved within sixty days to minimize the potential for accidents and injuries.
