Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about car recalls.
What Is a Car Recall?
A recall is issued when a manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a vehicle, equipment, car seat, or tire creates an unreasonable safety risk or does not meet minimum safety standards. If there is a recall, the manufacturer will fix the problem free of charge.
Open Recall Meaning – What Do We Need to Know?
An open recall means that the car has a problem that has not been resolved, because the manufacturer is not yet ready to provide the remedy or solution. It may also mean that you as the driver have not brought your vehicle in to fix the problem.
How Do You Know If There Is a Recall on Your Vehicle?
If your vehicle is registered, then the manufacturer will notify you of a recall by a letter in the mail. Manufacturers are obligated to attempt to notify owners of recalled parts and equipment. You can also complete a Lexus recall check with your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) using our form.
Where Can You Address Recalls?
You should visit a dealer authorized by the manufacturer for service, like the Lexus de Ponce service center for a Lexus recall check and repair. We fix the part for free.
Do Car Recalls Expire?
There is no expiration date for car recalls. A recall only becomes invalid if the manufacturer goes out of business or if the parts required to perform the repair are no longer available.
