We heard about many auto recalls recently. And whether they involve vehicles recalled over deadly air bag issues or simple minor equipment errors, never ignore these reports.
The latest recall comes from Ford Motor Company. According to the report, Ford recalled thousands of the 2019 Fusion Energi Hybrids. These vehicles may expose occupants to risk associated with high voltage sources. Since the vehicles may not protect occupants from these sources, they may experience injuries.
In order to avoid issues, Ford will notify impacted car owners directly. At dealers, staff will install Bus Electrical Center (BEC) covers to all of the vehicle’s high voltage fuses. The installation should be carried out for free.
While the official recall campaign will only begin on April 1st, 2019, consumers who are concerned about their safety should contact the firm for more details. You may obtain more information on how to contact a dealer by following this link.
Do Not Ignore Auto Recalls — Even If The Issue Doesn’t Sound Too Bad
Many safety recalls may not sound dangerous or risky, but the reality is that ignoring them can turn a seemingly harmless issue into a dangerous accident.
Responding to recalls as soon as they come up will help you save your life and your loved ones as well. Especially if issues are safety-related.
Recalls may range from issues that are easy to fix to others that require rare parts. Whatever the case, keeping the line of communication with the car maker open is important.
To stay on top of auto recalls, consumers should visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s website to learn about the latest reports. They can also use the website to look up their car’s VIN for any open recalls.
Also, make sure your contact information is updated with your dealer. If they cannot find you, they cannot alert you of open recalls. And because being involved in an accident caused by a vehicle with an open recall can be serious, ignoring recall alerts is also dangerous. If you and your family use a car regularly, staying on top of recall news is essential.
If you or a loved one suffers injuries in a crash caused by a negligent driver who failed to fix their car, you may have a case. Contact us for more information or for a free case evaluation as soon as possible. You should not be fighting this battle alone.
