What You Should Know about Car Recalls

When car recalls happen, it's usually because of a safety concern that's serious enough that car owners are notified to have their vehicles serviced at a local dealership.

When you receive a recall notice in the mail, it will include a list of information. It should explain the problem that was discovered, the risk to your safety that it poses, warning signs that faulty components may fail, and the course of action your car manufacturer will take to remedy the problem.

The recall notice will also give you specific instructions, including contact information, possible service centers near you that can perform any maintenance work required, and what you should do to begin the process. Manufacturer recalls are free to car owners, so it's a good idea to take advantage of the opportunity to improve the safety of your vehicle.
