Germain Lexus of Dublin Takata Airbag Recall in Dublin, OH

Overview of Automotive Safety Recalls

One of the vast benefits of living in the United States of America is regulatory oversight when it comes to our nation's highways and travel. At the heart of highway traffic safety is the concept of vehicle safety. When we purchase a vehicle, we like for it to provide maximum protection. When we drive our new Lexus down the road, it also comes with an expectation of safe travel. Working seemingly behind the scenes most of the time, the NHTSA is constantly monitoring vehicles, vehicular components, and incidents that pose enhanced safety risks for motorists. Although the NHTSA has the authority to issue a safety recall, safety recalls are most often issued by the NHTSA in collaboration with auto manufacturers.

How do I know if my Lexus has an active Safety Recall?

Most of the time, you'll receive a letter in the mail a few days after the safety recall is published as manufacturers are required to notify all drivers if a safety recall includes their vehicle. Auto manufacturers and the NHTSA also manage a database of vehicles filed by the Vehicle Identification Numbers (VIN). When a safety recall is issued, a database is also released to the public that contains all of the impacted vehicles alongside their unique VIN. If you think your Lexus might be included but you did not receive a letter, you can also run the VIN through the database to check. We also invite you to give us a call at Germain Lexus of Dublin, and we can also check for you.
