With a slew of recalls making news this summer we thought a recall refresher course was in order. When a recall becomes necessary manufacturers put the word out in the press to alert owners to the potential problems and tell them when to expect a recall notice in the mail. The notice usually goes out a few weeks to a month following the initial announcement. But owners can take action before that notice arrives. Recall press releases can usually be found on the manufacturer’s website (or at www.safercar.gov), and frequently include a couple numbers: one to identify the campaign, the other a phone number to call for more information. If you think your vehicle might be the subject of a recall you can wait for the notice in the mail or call the manufacturer-provided phone number to see if your vehicle is affected. Then, find a local dealer to fix the problem.
