Accidents involving recalled vehicles are more common than many may expect. And that’s precisely why so many of us fail to do more when our cars are recalled, because we think that many of the open recalls our vehicles are subject to won’t amount to much.
As personal injury attorneys, we know that several accidents happen because of equipment failure and, unfortunately, they are often serious. That’s why we often report on recall campaigns, especially as only about 60 percent of car owners get their vehicles repaired.
The latest recall to grab our attention was launched by Volkswagen.
According to the company, thousands of the 2018 Tiguan vehicles are being recalled. These units come with backup lights in the taillight assemblies that may not be bright enough. As a result, drivers following behind may not be able to see the car backing into them. If that’s the case, a collision may occur.
The company has stated that impacted vehicles will be fully repaired for free at authorized dealers.
The inner taillight assemblies should be replaced entirely for free so this issue is addressed in its entirely.
If you own one of the recalled vehicles, contact Volkswagen if you’re not contacted by them in December. Since this issue could lead to an accident, drivers who are involved in crashes caused by the issue tied to this recall should contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
Do not let this recall lead to complications in the future. Have your vehicle repaired as soon as possible, and if you’re concerned about your safety until you’re contacted by the company, reach out to Volkswagen and have your questions or concerns addressed immediately.
