When an automotive manufacturer designs a vehicle, it's tested thoroughly before production starts. Sometimes, safety issues only become apparent later; this is where a recall comes in. By recalling a part of an entire vehicle, the manufacturer can fix or replace it to get you back on the road safely.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) sets the rules for recalls. When a problem arises, you'll get a notice in the mail. The manufacturer is required to cover the costs, so you don't need to pay for a repair or a replacement. When a problem affects the entire vehicle, the manufacturer also has the option to offer you a refund instead of a repair.

If you receive a recall notice in Yonkers, NY, all you need to do is follow the instructions in the letter. Most notices tell you to call a dealership such as Yonkers Honda; they take care of everything else, so you can get back on the road with confidence.
