Many Vehicles Have Unaddressed Safety Recalls

Getting a safety recall notice on your vehicle can be a massive inconvenience. You have to take the vehicle in to the dealer and wait while the issue is fixed. Usually there is no cost to you for the repair, but it can eat up a lot of time.

Of course, ignoring the notice is a bad idea. It is, after all, a safety recall, which means that there is something on your vehicle that could malfunction or fail and put you and other people in danger. Despite that, though, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that about 25 percent of vehicles currently on the road have unaddressed safety recalls. Carfax estimates the number at 18 percent, or 47 million vehicles.

The vehicles most likely to have an open safety violation are SUVs and minivans registered in Texas, Mississippi, Alaska, Utah or West Virginia, according to Carfax.

So what should you do? First, make sure your vehicle does not have an open safety recall. To find out, you can check a database at the NHTSA. Just go to, and enter your vehicle identification number (VIN). If you have overlooked a recall, get your vehicle fixed as soon as possible.

Even if your vehicle does not have an open recall, it is important to realize that there are a lot of vehicles on the road that do. And the drivers of those vehicles are courting danger, for themselves as well as for other drivers like you. That’s why it is especially important to make sure that your auto insurance limits are sufficient for your situation.

At The Bensman Group, we are happy to talk to you about auto insurance or any of your insurance or wealth management needs. You can contact us at 847-572-0820 or
