What is an Auto Recall?

No one likes to hear bad news, especially negative information about a car. When you purchase a new or used vehicle, you don't want to learn the car faces a "recall." Some drivers panic and fear the worst. Understanding what a recall is will add some clarity to the situation.

When a recall takes place, the manufacturer discovers a serious safety defect exists with a particular model. The issue could center on concerns about the model falling below federal standards. Regardless of the reason for the recall, the manufacturer sends out a notice to the owner. The warning comes in the form of an official letter. The letter says the car must go in for repairs to address the defect.

Delays on having recall work performed is unwise. Driving around a vehicle with a safety defect can be dangerous. Recall repairs don't come with any cost to the owner. So, why delay?
