No doubt you’ve caught the news about recalls and automotive safety in recent days.
"It may be overwhelming to hear that so many cars have been recalled, but in truth, carmakers save money by using common parts wherever and whenever possible, and this greatly increases the number of affected vehicles when there is a recall," noted Edmunds.com Senior Editor John O’Dell, who recently published a fascinating piece on recalls at http://www.edmunds.com/car-
safety/recalled-but- unrepaired-cars-are-a-safety- risk-to-consumers.html
Edmunds.com Features Editor Carroll Lachnit advises consumers to stay on top of recalls that affect them. "Consumers enjoy having a lot of features in their cars, but sometimes, things can and will go wrong, and the probability increases with every additional feature you have. To keep you and your family safe, it's critical to stay informed about recalls and to address them quickly when they affect your car."
