Car recalls are a big deal. They happen when either the car manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has identified a serious risk in certain cars due to the way they’ve been designed or put together in the factory. This can often lead to most, if not all, of a certain make or model being recalled.
What’s more, the recall could be for anything from a faulty wheel that is unsafe to drive on, or even something like the Takata airbag recall, due to the airbags being linked to explosive deployments and multiple deaths.
Because of the potential risks involved, it’s important to take any car recall notice seriously, and get the problem rectified as soon as you can.
