Sleek & Williamson Auto Insurance | Your Vehicle was Recalled – What Next?

If you have purchased a vehicle, you may at some point experience a recall. This happens when it is discovered that part of the vehicle is defective and can cause minor or major problems. We see these recalls in the news all the time, but if it happens to you would you know what to do? Check out the correct procedure below –>


Most likely, you learned of the recall because you received a letter from the manufacturer. If that is the case, they will give you instructions on how to proceed. If you did not receive a letter, but have instead learned of the recall on the news – you should check the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website to confirm that your vehicle is one of the recalled models.

Make an appointment

Next, gather your vehicle’s information (VIN #) and make a call to your local model’s dealership. Even if you did not purchase your automobile there, they will be authorized to make the needed repairs through the manufacturer. Keep in mind, according to the scale of the recall, it may take some time to get an appointment. If your vehicle is showing signs of a defective part, be sure to alert them that you need assistance ASAP.

Get your vehicle fixed

Finally, you will take your car in for the needed repairs. Be sure to ask in advance the estimated time it will take. You may need to plan for a friend to pick you up or acquire a rental car in the meantime.

As you can see, having your car recalled is really not that big of a deal. Typically, it is an easy fix and you will get back on the road in no time!
