October 29, 2014
Concluding our three-part blog series Defective Vehicle Equipment: 6 Facts to Know, below, we will wrap up our discussion regarding the important info you should know when it comes to defective vehicle equipment.
Some Final Important Facts about Defective Vehicle Equipment
Fact 5 – Vehicle owners are encouraged to report defective vehicle equipment to the NHTSA.
In the event that defective vehicle equipment harms people, officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) strongly urge these injured people to report the nature of the defective equipment to the NHTSA as soon as possible. A few of the reasons that reporting defective vehicle equipment is so important are that it:
- Allows NHTSA regulators to more precisely gauge the nature of a problem
- Can end up sparking recalls for defective vehicle equipment to be issued earlier, which may end up saving lives.
In fact, the NHTSA has done its best to make it as easy as possible for vehicle owners to report allegedly defective vehicle equipment by offering some easy-to-use online tools that allow people to file and search complaints.
Additionally, the NHTSA has a relatively new app that, when downloaded, can alert vehicle owners immediately after any recall affecting their vehicle has been issued. Staying abreast of the lasted NHTSA recalls for defective vehicle equipment can be critical to protecting yourself and your family.
