What are Recalls?
When there is an auto recall, a manufacturer will determine if a car model or different models under the same automaker need to be recalled for safety-related defects. This could mean that something has broken or will break in the future, or it could mean that the vehicle doesn’t comply with federal safety standards. In any case, the vehicle manufacturer will alert drivers when there has been a car recall. However, you should keep in mind that a recall doesn’t mean that the whole car will be refunded or replaced.
You should receive a notice in the mail if your car has been recalled. It will include a description of the problem, any risks or hazards related, potential signs of problems, and how you can get it repaired or replaced, depending on the extend of the recall. The recall letter will have instructions with the next steps you should take.
