What is a recall and why is it important?

Periodically, you will hear about a recall happening with a particular make, model, and model year vehicle. At BMW of Honolulu, we’ll always have the latest recalls available. You can bring your car in and get the needed repair.

When there is a recall, it is because the NHTSA or manufacturer has determined that a model (or several models) have a defect that is safety-related. Some recalls are mandatory, which means that you will need to bring it into a dealership for the repair to be made. In other instances, the recall is voluntary, allowing you to decide if you want to bring it in.

The recalls may require that airbags are replaced, new parts are added, or something different. Often, the manufacturer will pay for the recall to be done, allowing you to get the repair or modification done at no cost to you.
