The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issue over 600 recalls a year in an effort to reduce injuries and fatalities on our roads. However, the issuance of recalls does not necessarily mean vehicles are becoming more dangerous.
In an effort to avoid automotive related injuries, automakers will issue their own recalls anytime a concern may arise. These recalls are actually good for the consumer creating an improved product.
Think about it this way – you download an app on your smartphone. Then, a few months later, there is an update for that app which will fix all the bugs and problems that users have been experiencing. You may not have even noticed anything wrong with your app, but the developers wish to create an unforgettable experience for all users. So, naturally, they want to fix any problems you could possibly experience in the future. Automakers do the same thing!
Obviously, an update on your vehicle is vastly more significant than an update to your favorite smartphone application, and that is exactly why it is important to always follow up with any recall notice you receive from your automaker.
