By amber.

What should you do if your car has been recalled, but the parts aren't available?

The answer is NOT panic!

Get your VIN number (found on the dashboard near the windshield on the driver's side) , and go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website ( It will tell you where there are recalls on your car that haven't been fixed, and if the car maker is waiting for parts.

If the parts your car needs aren't available, do a little bit of research and see if those parts could cause injury or crashes if they break. Check to see if your car is displaying symptoms of the problems that caused the recall, and head straight to your dealer.

Don't drive a car that is unsafe.

Not only that, but you`ll never believe the price... $6,800.00.

Major manufacturers destroyed by this 1 little thing

By amber.

Most likely, unless you've been living under a rock, you've heard about the massive recalls major car manufacturers are suffering at the moment.
