Every year hundreds of vehicles are recalled for issues ranging from faulty airbags, engine issues and more. In 2019 so far there were 238 vehicles that were recalled. That is a recall every 1.5 days.
How can vehicle owners keep themselves informed? If you're buying a second-hand car, how will you know if there are active recalls for vehicles you're considering? Ignoring recalls on your vehicles might end up in costly repairs, or worse: a safety incident when you least expect.
The media and the government are inefficient in disseminating critical recall information to consumers. Often times it takes days or weeks before a major recall is announced by the media.
Consumers are asked to be proactive, but they are at the mercy of slow channels to receive important news. Some recalls aren't event mentioned anywhere except official channels.
Recall Monitor notifies you of product recalls faster than any other channel - instantly.
If you own, or are considering buying a second hand car you might not be on the manufacturer's list of people to notify in the event of a recall. Your insurance might not cover repairs to your car if you bring it in too late.
Avoid all the headache and be in the know as soon as recalls are issued. Don't put your safety at risk.
