A Brief Guide on What to Do When Your Car Is Recalled

Many drivers have never had to deal with a car safety recall. The informed driver is a safer driver, however, and that's why it's important to know what a car recall is and how to deal with the situation.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) sets federal vehicle safety standards. When this administration determines that a specific car model doesn't comply with the standards, the carmaker issues an alert. They usually send letters to all affected drivers, and these letters include information about the safety defect and its potential risks.

If you receive a recall letter, it doesn't necessarily mean that you and your passengers are in immediate danger. Nonetheless, you should have a professional assess your vehicle and perform any necessary repairs. If you're a Laplace driver whose vehicle has recently been recalled, you can have your recall service taken care of at Riverland Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
