Was Your Vehicle Recalled?
Automobiles are expected to perform in a way that protects the public against unreasonable risk of accidents arising out of the design, construction, or performance of a motor vehicle, and against unreasonable risk of injury or death.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) defines a defect as any defect in a component, material, performance, a component, or construction of a motor vehicle or its equipment that:
- Poses a risk to motor vehicle safety, and
- May exist within a group of vehicles with the same design or manufacture, or with items of equipment from the same type and manufacture.
Safety recalls can be made independently by the manufacturer, or they can be ordered by the NHTSA. In either case, the NHTSA monitors the safety recall to ensure that the manufacturer provides vehicle owners with free, safe, and effective remedies which comply with the Safety Act and federal regulations.
