Why Safety Recalls Are Important

Automakers, including Toyota, want people who drive their cars, trucks, and SUVs to be safe. As manufacturing defects or design corrections are identified, both the government and automakers will issue recalls to replace or repair parts, often free of charge to consumers. Recalls can affect safety systems such as airbags, seatbelts and other passenger restraints, engines, transmissions, ignition and electrical systems, suspension systems, brakes, and even small parts such as brackets and bolts. Ensuring that open recalls are identified and fixed helps ensure the safety of drivers, their passengers, and even the occupants of other vehicles on the road.
