Subaru brake light safety recallWhat brake lights?!  I didn’t see any brake lights.

If your Subaru was hit in the rear and the driver that hit you says “I never saw any brake lights”, they just might be right!

Welcome to March 11th and a new round of Safety Recalls.

Subaru is the vehicle interest this week.

Looks as if this Safety Recall could be affecting over 1 million vehicles dating back was far as 2008.   If you drive Rte 4 through Northwood you know how important brake lights are.  link to recall

If you own an Audi keep some marshmallows with you!

Audi is recalling certain 2013-2016 Audi A8 and S8 vehicles.  Seems there is a potential for a fuel leak in the high-pressure part of the fuel system. Cooking your marshmallows over a gas fire is not advisable.  link to recall

As always safety recalls are to be performed at no cost to the vehicle owner, even if you are not the original owner of the vehicle.

Below is this week’s  list of Safety Recalls affecting a variety of wheeled vehicles that travel our highways

What is a recall?
When a manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a vehicle creates an unreasonable risk to safety or fails to meet minimum safety standards, the manufacturer is required to fix that vehicle at no cost to the owner. That can be done by repairing it, replacing it, offering a refund (for equipment) or, in rare cases, repurchasing the car.

What should I do if my vehicle is included in this recall?
If your vehicle is included in this recall, it is very important that you get it fixed as soon as possible given the potential danger to you and your passengers if it is not addressed. You should receive a separate letter in the mail from the vehicle manufacturer, notifying you of the recall and explaining when the remedy will be available, whom to contact to repair your vehicle, and to remind you that the repair will be done at no charge to you. If you believe your vehicle is included in the recall, but you do not receive a letter in the mail from the vehicle manufacturer, please call NHTSA’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or contact your vehicle manufacturer or dealership.
