The National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA) regularly announces vehicle safety car
recalls in an effort to inform and urge owners to get problems
In the United States, safety car
recalls must be performed at no charge to the customer. Car
manufacturers are required by law to mail notices of car recalls to
owners and dealers.
Notices get lost in the mail or
discarded as junk mail. Even after these attempts to notify
customers, only 72% of owners affected by safety issue car recalls
have the recall work completed. Chevy Avalanche Recalls
Car Accident Advice often obtains
recall notices before dealers and owners. The NHTSA recommends
that you wait for the mailed bulletin to arrive before requesting
the work to be done. However, you can ask your
Chevy Avalanche Recalls dealer when the next recall update notice is expected at their shop.
