With so many recall notices come out lately it seems like the perfect time for a cell phone app that will keep you up to date on all the auto recalls going on. I don’t need to tell you about all the auto accidents cause by recalls that people don’t know about. This app seems like a great idea at just the right time.
One of the more recent problems to hit the auto industry is when a consumer goes to buy a used car they might not be aware of the existing recalls issued for that particular vehicle. I just read a story about a young man that was killed in a car accident when he purchased a truck that had been recalled because of problems with the steering rod.
Stories like this are not uncommon and they are very tragic because the whole purpose of the recalls are to save people lives, reduce the number of personal injures and auto accidents. Which is why, as a Seattle personal injury lawyer, I feel giving the consumer the power to research recalls and other valuable pieces of information is highly important.
The only thing I think should be done asap is to make this cell phone app available for the iPhone as well. Currently this app is only available for Droid based cell phones.
