Lexus Recall Check – Evansville
Automakers sometimes choose to recall their vehicles so that they can fix known issues that have affected the safety of their cars. For example, the largest recalls might involve recalling literally millions of vehicles to authorized dealerships just like ours to repair. A recall itself isn’t a sign that the vehicle is defective, but that a part of the vehicle isn’t functioning the way that it should function. It doesn’t mean you got a bad car, just that the automaker feels like they can improve on one of its components. And then there are recalls that involve the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, an agency of the U.S. government that monitors vehicle safety issues. If they notice a pattern of compromised safety in a vehicle, they will ask the automaker to recall the vehicle for repair. You can see if your car, truck, or SUV is on our detailed list of recalls by using the form below. It takes only a few minutes of your time but could drastically improve the safety of your vehicle in the future.
What Should I Do If There is a Recall for my Vehicle?
If you find that your vehicle is on the list of recalled vehicles, don’t worry. Your car isn’t “bad.” It just needs to have a part of it repaired. An authorized Lexus dealership like ours handles recalls all the time. Most of the time, the repair we have to make it quick and easy. You’ll be back out there on the road in no time! You can’t get back out there safely, though, unless you first bring your vehicle into our dealership to have the recall taken care of.
Many people are understandably frustrated when they find out about a recall. That frustration can quickly turn into relief when you realize that there’s no charge to fix the recalled item or system.
Do I Have to Pay for Recall Repairs?
As mentioned before, you don’t pay out of pocket for a repair associated with a recall. You might have to pay for other services, like oil changes or brake work not associated with the recall, but you won’t pay for the recall repair itself. Knowing that it’s free to fix a recall often comes as a big relief to our customers. The recall part might have been defective from the very beginning, so there’s no way that Lexus is going to charge its customers for their mistake. When you have your repair taken care of at an authorized Lexus dealership like ours, you never have to worry about paying out of pocket for the recall. You get your recalled part fixed. We perform the service in a friendly, expert way. And everyone is happy at the end of the day.
