What is the Ford Recall?

The main objective of Ford recalls is to address safety issues of vehicles with defects, even minor ones e.g Ford airbag recall. A defect can be exposed in numerous ways, including an in-house review conducted by auto manufacturers, customer complaints, or disastrous accidents related to the defect. An auto recall is issued when a manufacturer or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) finds out that a vehicle’s specific part creates an arbitrary safety risk or fails to meet minimum safety standards.

There is a recall on my Ford, what next?

If your car has any open safety recall, your Auto Manufacturer is responsible to fix the problem by repairing, offering a refund, replacing the car, or repurchasing the vehicle. According to the Safety Recall outline, auto manufacturers are needed to notify vehicle owners about the problem within 60 days. If an owner could not get it repaired within time, the vehicle continues to have an open recall. Even if you have not been notified by your manufacturer, you are still eligible for a remedy on the recalled vehicle. If your Ford is recalled, you don’t need to worry about the repair cost. All costs associated with the repair or replacement are completely the responsibility of the dealer or manufacturer.

 Whether a safety recall is accompanied by the auto manufacturer or is ordered by the NHTSA, a public report must be filed giving the following information:

– The safety-related defect or noncompliance with a federal motor vehicle safety standard

– The number of involved vehicle/equipment

– The major events that caused the recall determination

– A description of the remedy

– A schedule for the recall

Can a vehicle you are purchasing have an open recall?

When buying a used vehicle, it is important to check if it has any prior safety recalls. An open recall may not be necessary when buying a new car because the manufacturer is bound by law to fix it.  For all major and minor safety concerns, car recalls are issues that happen all the time. So whether you bought your vehicle new or used, once there is an open recall on your vehicle, you are eligible for a repair or replacement at no cost. Use our service to do a car recall check by supplying the details in the form above.
