You’ve probably seen the headlines about the excessive number of vehicle recalls that have been issued.
For example, millions of vehicles have recently been recalled by GM alone for faulty ignition switches. These dangerous defects have been linked to at least 13 deaths already.
Are you sure that your vehicle hasn’t been included in any of the recent recalls?
Thankfully, there are some easy ways to check on the recall status of your vehicle and avoid a Clearwater car accident. It only takes minutes, so take a moment to see whether there are any recalls for your car with a quick vehicle recall check.
- Safercar.gov – Search under recalls for any relevant recalls or other technical service bulletins that may have been issued for your vehicle. Safercar.gov also offers a mobile app that can help you stay up to date on what you need to know about road safety.
- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration – The NHTSA’s website also has a section on their website that is devoted to sharing recent vehicle recalls with the public.
Be sure to take all vehicle recalls seriously
Don’t make the mistake of thinking that manufacturers are being extra cautious when they have issued a recall or that your vehicle is unlikely to be impacted.
Recalls are sent out for a reason and should be treated seriously. Be responsible and ensure that your vehicle gets the service it needs.
