How to File a Vehicle Safety Complaint
The past several years have seen an incredible number of recalls on vehicles for safety reasons. Between defective airbags, sudden accelerations, and exploding gas tanks, we see the federal government taking your safety very seriously and holding automakers responsible. You may be wondering how you, the driver, may have a hand in notifying a manufacture of an issue you notice while operating your vehicle. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has made it easy for you.
If you are driving a vehicle and notice a possible safety concern, or mechanical problem that just can’t be solved, the NHTSA encourages you to visit their website www.nhtsa.gov and follow the directions to “File a Vehicle Safety Complaint”. These complaints are received and monitored by this federal agency and used when investigating ongoing issues with a vehicle. The more complaints they receive about a single issue, the better equipped they are when questioning a vehicle manufacturer.
