Automotive Safety Recalls & Issues
What’s the Difference Between Car Recalls and Issues?
When a car manufacturer realizes that one of its products has a fault or defect, they issue a recall on the car. These recalls allow the manufacturer to fix any problems that occurred during the manufacturing of the car, typically at no cost to the owner. The purpose is to make sure the car meets federal safety standards.
Recalls aren’t always clear-cut. Many recalls happen after the defect has been noticed. This delay could create problems, risk lives, or even cause damages. If your car has a recall on it, you should make sure you have it repaired immediately. If your car is part of a recall, then you’re may be eligible for compensation.
Car issues are different from recalls in that they tend to be trends of problems with certain types of cars. These cars have mounting complaints about similar features as either consumer complaints or complains to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. However, car issues are more of an annoyance than grounds for a possible case.
