Don’t Ignore a Car Recall

airbagEvery auto manufacturer is dedicated to producing and selling high quality, safe automobiles. Unfortunately, there are times when they come up short. In some cases, this leads to a recall.

If you have reason to believe that your car has a recall associated with it, don’t hesitate to consult with the manufacturer or your local dealership. For example, the most recent air bag recall impacts tens of millions of vehicles throughout the country. It is better to be safe than sorry, as ignoring a recall could put you at risk for an accident or injury.

Note: you can also contact us for the most up to date information on recalls.

What Next?

You never want to hear that your car is being recalled, but here is the good thing: the automaker will repair the problem for free. Yes, you still have to visit a local dealer to have the issue taken care of. While this is sure to cost you some time, at least you don’t have to part with any money.

Tip: don’t hesitate to ask the service department for more information on the recall, including whether or not there is anything else you need to know. It is within your rights to understand the finer details of the recall.

It is easy to sweep a recall under the rug, but this is not a mistake you want to make. It is better to address the problem once and for all, as this will give you peace of mind.
