WORCESTER, MA, May 16, 2014 -- Do you know if your car has any open manufacturer issued safety recalls? Amazingly one-third of all vehicles recalled by automakers are never brought to dealers. The reasons people don't take advantage of these repairs range from not being aware of the recall to not having the time to give up the car to make a repair.
If your car seems to be running smoothly, a safety recall may seem to be an inconvenience but there are good reasons to get a defective part fixed as soon as you can. First and foremost is safety, for you and your family. Recent research from the Highway Loss Data Institute found that repairing recalled vehicles reduces "dangerous incidents" for drivers. The study looked at non-crash fire claims and found fewer insurance claims for those who made a recall required repair.
