What is an automotive recall?

When you’re a driver, it’s important to stay on top of auto recalls. At Acura of Johnston, we’ll keep you in the loop with all of the latest recalls.

A recall will come from the auto manufacturer or the NHTSA if there is a safety issue with a particular model or models. The recall will identify the make, model, and model year that is affected. In some instances, it is limited to a certain number of VINs. They will identify what the safety issue is and what’s going on.

Once a recall has affected your vehicle, you will want to get it into the dealership as soon as possible. This way, the service center can identify if your vehicle is part of the recall. A repair can be done to get your car compliant again. In most instances, the repair is at no cost to you because it is covered by the manufacturer.
