By now you've probably heard of the Takata airbag recalls. 34 million vehicles were recalled because of potentially lethal airbags, making it the biggest recall in the history of the world. A few people across the globe have died from these airbags exploding at random.
Carmakers are figuring out the best possible solutions to ensure everyone's protection. Overall, it's been a very difficult situation.
I'm Doug Wilson, CEO of Wilson Auto Group, Inc., the parent company of Wilson Hyundai, Wilson Kia on Lakeland, Wilson Premier Hyundai in the Jackson, Mississippi area as well as Collierville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram in the Memphis suburb of Collierville, Tennessee. Your safety is very important to me personally. I want everyone to feel as protected as possible behind the wheel of their vehicle.
I want to pass along some information to you that will help you find out if your vehicle or one you are interested in purchasing is subject to a Federally Mandated Safety Recall. Part of the Wilson Way is informing our customers, potential customers and drivers in general.
So, here's what you need to do.
To start, retrieve the VIN number or serial number of your vehicle. This 17-digit number will be on your sales paperwork and can also be found in the lower left corner of the front windshield (read from the outside) as well as the drivers' door jam when the door is open. Get this number and go to the recall website shown below.
The NHTSA website www.safercar.gov allows drivers to search safety recalls by year, make, model and VIN. Visit the website and do a little research on your vehicle.
