Recalls Of Cars, Trucks, SUVs Happening So Fast: How You Can Keep Up

Recalls Of Cars, Trucks, SUVs Happening So Fast: How You Can Keep Up

Last month, there was more on the growing (huge) Toyota scare.

Now, we’re hearing about Lexus problems.

In February, there were Honda recalls.

In January, there were GM recalls of Pontiacs as well as the Chevy Cobalt.

How to keep up with all these recalls — are there any safe vehicles on the road these days?

Well, no one can predict the future here but one good source of information is the database maintained by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).  Updated frequently, and available for free online, this resource gives you information regarding:

Motor Vehicle Recalls

Child Safety Seat Recalls

Motor Vehicle Equipment Recalls

Tire Recalls

School Bus Recalls

It also gives you Monthly Recall Reports and lets you subscribe to monthly updates by email.

Remember, a Recall Does NOT remove the danger; it only warns of it.

A recall database is not giving you and your family protection in advance, but at least this NHTSA compilation is giving some warning of dangers that are out there — because a recall doesn’t mean that a faulty, unsafe product isn’t still being used in the marketplace.

As you and your loved ones drive the roadways of Illinois and Indiana today, odds are very, very high that you will share the road with many vehicles that have recalls attached to them or their components (tires, etc.). 

Be careful out there.
