What are recalls?

A lot of car owners have questions about recalls, especially when they hear the make and model of their own car is affected. There are questions like will you be able to drive your car or what happens if you bring your car in? Will they replace your vehicle? In most cases, car defects require a simple repair or part replacement. In other cases, you may receive a replacement or compensation for the problem.

A car recall is issued by an auto manufacturer or the NHTSA. These notices alert the owner of the defect, including a description and what steps to take next. This is typically when you’ll bring the car into a dealer for a repair or replacement parts. If your car is affected, you should receive the notice following the discovery, but not all owners receive immediate notice.
