Many Florida Vehicles Have Open Safety Recalls

Posted on March 21, 2017

According to a recent report from ABC Action News, Florida ranks 3rd in the nation for cars on the road with unfixed recalls. In fact, 4 million motor vehicles in Florida have safety recalls that have not been fixed. Across the country, 1 in 4 motor vehicles on the highways have open recalls. The numbers are troubling because many recalls concern serious safety issues. Recalls are often related to a malfunctioning car part or system that could cause a car accident.

Many drivers are simply unaware their vehicle has an open recall. You can easily see if yours does by entering your VIN here: www.nhtsa.gov/recalls. If you aren’t sure what your Vehicle Identification Number is, you can find it on the lower left-hand side of your windshield. It is also listed on your registration. If your vehicle does have an open recall, it will be free to have it repaired, but you must make time in your schedule to take it in for the fix.

Addressing an open safety recall is important. Sometimes these recalls involve parts that are essential to the safety of the driver and passengers:

  • Seat belts
  • Airbags
  • Tires
  • Ignition switches
  • Accelerator pedals
  • Steering wheels
