Manufacturers issue recalls when a vehicle poses a risk to occupants’ safety. The decision to recall a vehicle is often made voluntarily by the manufacturer, but in some cases, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will issue the recall.
Once a recall is made, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer to provide repairs to the vehicles, or in rare cases, to replace the defective vehicle or buy it back from the consumer.
Drivers are notified of recalls by the manufacturer. This is why it is important to register the vehicle and keep such a registration up to date.
The NHTSA also offers to send recall information to consumers via email. Car owners can sign up for such notifications on the website, or download an app that will notify about any recalls or safety issues with their vehicle.
If your vehicle is recalled, follow the instructions for how to stay safe and when to take the vehicle to the dealer for repairs.
