Does your car have a recall?

What is a recall?

A recall takes place after a large safety issue is brought to a car manufacturer’s attention. Engine issues, supplemental restraint system (SRS) problems, or other items may make the vehicle unsafe or hazardous to operate. At that point, a manufacturer must notify owners of affected vehicles that a recall is happening, what is involved, and then take steps to correct the issue. This correction must be performed at no cost to the consumer.

Where can I take care of a recall on my vehicle?

While independent shops can be a great place to have your car repaired or maintained, if your vehicle is subject to a recall, only an authorized dealership can perform the repair.

Is a 'campaign' the same as a recall?

Campaigns are not the same as recalls. A vehicle may experience issues not related to its safety after it is released. In some of these cases, the manufacturer may create a campaign to correct the issue for free while the vehicle is under warranty. Any documentation you receive from the manufacturer should state explicitly whether your issue is a recall or a campaign.
