Commonly Recalled Auto Parts

There’s no doubting that modern cars are exponentially safer, easier to operate, and more convenient today than they were even as little as 10 years ago. However these advancements have also created more of an opportunity for the part to fail in certain cases, resulting in a car that is extremely dangerous to both its driver and those on the road with it.

Some car parts that are commonly recalled include:

  • Seatbelt mechanisms
  • Steering hardware
  • Brake systems
  • Transmission parts
  • Gear selectors

Parts can be recalled for a variety of reasons beyond just a potential defect: a feature that is confusing or difficult to operate while driving may also be grounds for a recall. It is important that car features are simple and intuitive to use, otherwise driving while distracted by that particular feature could result in a crash and injuries.
