Defects and Recalls

Safety defects found in vehicles by manufacturers or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) should result in a timely recall of the defective vehicle or parts so that unnecessary harm does not come to consumers. Unfortunately, many defects go un-recalled, and lives are needlessly lost and injuries caused because defective vehicles remain on the road.
