Recalls are a source of concern for many drivers and can even decrease the resale value of your car if they aren’t addressed. They can also alert you to a threat to your safety while driving, which is why you should be getting your open recalls taken care of as soon as possible. The best place to get that done is at your local Ford recall department at Port Orchard Ford, where we’ll make sure your car is fully functioning at Ford’s standards.
Both Ford and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) receive numerous customer reports. They see if any of the failures or issues reported are common to a specific cohort of vehicles. When either of them identifies a set of vehicles that all have the same problem, Ford issues a notice called a recall to let you know of the issue. Then, you can get that issue fixed at no cost to you at your local certified Ford service center.
In general, all recalls should be taken care of as soon as you find out about them. The way Ford notifies you is via a piece of mail. However, mail can get lost, ignored, or thrown out, which means that you might not receive notice. Thankfully, we have an online recall finding tool that will let you search for your specific car and find out what recalls are open, so you can enter your car’s information and find out just what it needs.
For every recall, Ford sends out a service bulletin that details the fixes needed to take care of the recall. Since all Ford vehicles are unique, you want somebody who knows the intricacies of your vehicle to take care of your recalls, and our technicians are here to provide that expertise. They’ll make sure your car is taken care of right, and their training and experience will ensure that your vehicle will be better off with the recall resolved.
