Having a safety recall issued on your car can sound scary. A car has many parts, and any one of them could be defective. However, if resolved quickly, the defect can be fixed, and you can feel safe driving your car again. Here are some remedies that are available to your defective vehicle in the event of a recall.
The manufacturer will choose the remedy that will best fix the defect. Most of the time, repairing the defect will fix the problem permanently. In some cases, the repair does not work. The manufacturer is then required to provide other remedies to fix the defect. You may be able to get a replacement vehicle or receive compensation for the value of the vehicle.
In some cases, you may be able to file a lawsuit. If a large number of consumers were affected, a class action lawsuit may be an option. If you suffered injuries due to your defective vehicle, you may want to consider filing a personal injury lawsuit. A Fairmont attorney can review your case and determine your rights.
