A recall is necessary when a motor vehicle does not meet the minimum federal motor vehicle safety standards for the parts that most affect its safe operation, such as the brakes and tires, or for parts that protect the driver and passengers from death or serious injuries in the event of a collision, such as air bags or seat belts.

Auto part recalls can affect any part of the vehicle. While it is important to be up to date concerning any possible recalls for your vehicle, in reality most injured victims do not realize that their vehicle is part of a recall until it is too late. An auto dealership is not allowed to sell new vehicles with recalls unless they have been fixed; unfortunately this is not the case for used vehicles. If you have purchased a used vehicle, it is always best to double check the history of it and research thoroughly to ensure that it has not been part of a recall.
