Common Types of Recalls:

Since NHTSA began enforcing recall actions in 1966, over 390 million vehicles (cars, trucks, buses, RVs, motorcycles, and mopeds) as well as 46 million tires and 66 million pieces of motor vehicle equipment have been recalled in order to correct defective parts. Most recalls are fixed for FREE at a manufacturer’s dealership. Some of the most common types of recalls include:

  • Exploding airbag inflators (driver and passenger)
  • Axle or steering components
  • Brakes, tires, or wheels
  • Defective seat belts
  • Engine parts
  • Electrical and internal computer systems
  • Overheating and other technical defects
  • Car parts "sticking" (accelerator pedal)
