Why Safety Recalls Are Important

Over 55 million vehicles were recalled in 2014, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Throughout the year, NHTSA and auto manufacturers recall cars for various manufacturing defects that could affect the safety of the vehicle. These recalls are usually fixed free of charge to consumers. Recalls can affect almost any part of the car, including airbags, seatbelts, and brakes. Identifying and fixing open recalls helps ensure the safety of drivers, passengers, and even the occupants of other vehicles on the road.
