A recall is when the automobile manufacturer or NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) has found a defect or safety-related problem with a vehicle after it has been sold to the public. Whether it is an airbag, seatbelt buckle, or something like a flaw in the vehicle's software, you will know if your vehicle has been recalled usually by receiving a letter in the mail. You can also search for recalls on the NHTSA's website.

What To Do Next If Your Car Has A Recall

Because automobile recalls are safety-related, the manufacturer is obligated to repair the automobile free of charge. If you receive a letter in the mail notifying you of a recall, be sure to take it into an authorized dealer and let them perform the repair for you. Although not all recalls are serious issues, you mustn't take any risk, and take care of the problem.
