A car safety recall notifies you that your car has a potentially serious mechanical problem, which can be extremely dangerous to you and other drivers. If your car's registration is up-to-date and the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) discovers a safety problem for your vehicle, the manufacturer will send you a letter notifying you of the recall and what you need to do. In the event of a recall, the manufacturer will fix the problem free of charge. Safety recall letters can be long and complex, and it's also possible they could get lost in transit from the automaker to you.
