The U.S. Department of Transportation National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched a new public awareness campaign called Safe Cars Save Lives. This campaign urges consumers to check for open recalls at least twice a year and to get their vehicles fixed as soon as parts are available. Last year, there were close to 900 recalls affecting 51 million vehicles nationwide. Every year, on average, 25% of recalled vehicles are left unrepaired.
“Recalls are a serious safety issue that should be promptly addressed,” said U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx. “An informed consumer is one of our strongest allies in ensuring recalled vehicles are repaired. Do not wait to act if your car is under recall and the parts are available.”
Millennium Paint & Body Works encourages consumers to get into the habit of checking their vehicle identification number (VIN) at least twice a year.
