Recall Notices Auto Repair Huntington Beach
Lately it seems we have gotten a lot of calls from customers that have received a recall notice on their vehicle and want to know if they can bring it to Val & Mike’s Auto Repair for service. Unfortunately we have to tell them no, only a dealer can take care of a recall on a vehicle. An auto recall occurs when a manufacturer (or the NHTSA) determines that a car model (or several models) has a safety-related defect or does not comply with a federal safety standard. When this happens, the automaker will alert owners to the problem and usually offer a free repair. If you have received a recall notice, there will be instructions telling you the next step for your recall. If you don’t receive a notice, but you think your vehicle is included in a recall that you have heard about, you can go the Recalls.gov website to check.
