When a consumer purchases a vehicle, they believe it to be safe.
No one wants to hear that their vehicle has been recalled; but, if you receive a letter saying it has, pay attention. The law requires automakers to notify owners about safety recalls.
The letter details what you should do, how long the repairs will take, and where you can find additional information. The dealer will make the necessary repairs free of charge.
Never put off taking your vehicle to the dealer once you receive an official safety recall notice. Some defects are minor, while others are not. You don't want to jeopardize your safety or that of your loved ones because you failed to have your vehicle repaired for the safety recall.
If you discover a defect in your automobile and have not received a notification about it, the NHTSA encourages complaints from vehicle owners. They will conduct defect investigations and administer safety recalls to support its mission to improve safety on our nation's roads.
If you are injured because of a defect in your vehicle and have not been advised about it, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at the law offices of Peach & Weathers - located in San Bernardino and Riverside Counties.
You may be entitled to compensation for your injuries, damages, medical expenses and pain and suffering.
