Don't Ignore Auto Recalls

Takata Corporation - one of the world’s largest auto parts manufacturers - made headlines this week after admitting its airbags were defective and expanding its recall of U.S. vehicles to nearly 34 million. As a firm that represents victims and families whose lives have been affected by defective products - including defective auto parts - we’d like to remind everyone about the importance of taking vehicle recalls seriously.

In today’s issue of Sun Sentinel, Attorney John Uustal’s letter to the editor - Don’t ignore auto recalls - was published. In the letter, he urges South Floridians to act with urgency in taking recalled vehicles in for service.

Here are a few helpful details about the recall and steps you can take:

  • Takata’s recall includes 33.8 million U.S. cars and trucks from various automakers. This equates to roughly 1 in 7 of the more than 250 million automobiles on U.S. roads!
  • Recalled vehicles include various models from Honda, Toyota, BMW, Chrysler, Ford, General Motors, Mazda, Mitsubishi, Nissan, Subaru, and Saab.
  • If you have a recalled vehicle, you can take it into a dealer that will replace airbags for free, as long as parts are available.
  • Not sure if your vehicle has been recalled? Call you dealer or search online using your National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) VIN Search tool.

If you have questions about defective auto parts and your rights after an accident or injury, our legal team at Kelley/Uustal is available to discuss your case during a free consultation.
