There’s something your rental company isn’t telling you: your car might still have serious safety defects. Don’t assume a recalled car is fixed before you rent it.  Last year was a record year for safety-related car recalls. If your car wasn’t among the tens of millions of vehicles with potentially deadly defects, you might have breathed a sigh of relief and not given the news another thought. However, you might not be as safe as you think you are, especially… Read More

What if the food you served your family was infected with bacteria that made you so ill that you had to be hospitalized? What if a medication a doctor prescribed had such serious side effects that a loved one died from them? What if that toy you gave your child contained toxic lead, mercury, or even gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), a chemical better known as the “date rape drug”? Do you know your legal rights as a consumer? Did you know that… Read More

One of the most disturbing aspects of the Takata airbag recall affecting upwards of 14 million cars – apart from the gruesome nature of the defect, which has left victims with lethal stab-like wounds – is the timeline. Eleven of the biggest automotive manufacturers have recalled cars with model years dating back as far as 2000. These potentially dangerous cars have been on the road more than a decade, giving them plenty of opportunity to cause or worsen a collision… Read More

This year’s seemingly endless tide of car recalls that started off as early as February isn’t over yet. Safety defects from several major automakers continue to plague the industry and, more importantly, vulnerable consumers. Here’s a recap of the biggest car recall news so far this season. Recall News by Automaker Chrysler: This manufacturer’s on fire, and not in a good way. The automaker recalled more than 900,000 cars and SUVs globally in mid-October for fire risks, according to Reuters.… Read More

Almost from the start of 2014, defective ignition switches have been haunting automakers. General Motors (GM) was responsible for the bulk of ignition switch-related recalls this year, but the manufacturer isn’t alone. Chrysler just announced that it was recalling yet another almost 350,000 cars for its own ignition switch defects, ABC News reported. This follows a July recall of nearly 800,000 Chrysler SUVs for issues with the ignition switches. In total, Chrysler has recalled upwards of 2,000,000 cars for dangers… Read More

The 13 deaths that automaker General Motors (GM) previously admitted were associated with its defective ignition switches are more like 21, according to CNN. Could there be even more?

It seems one 2013 Ford vehicle just can’t escape its bad luck – pun intended. Despite being on the road for just a couple of years, the relatively new 2013 Ford Escape SUV has been recalled 11 times as of mid-August 2014 – and that means plenty of frustration for its owners. The 2013 Ford Escape is considered a compact crossover SUV. A recall announced in August 2014 was the vehicle’s 11th so far. Photo Credit: Wikimedia Commons (public domain). Recalling… Read More

Just as numerous automakers have issued recalls in 2014, multiple manufacturers have now been fined for delaying recalls. Earlier this month, Hyundai became the latest car company to face fines from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for failures in properly and promptly recalling cars with safety defects. The problem that led to the recall of tens of thousands of Hyundai Genesis cars, like the 2010 model above, stems from brake fluid that is unsuccessful at preventing corrosion of… Read More

Opening the window might just make your car even hotter if you drive one of the SUVs that are the subject of another recall from General Motors (GM). That’s because the power window switches in these vehicles are apparently fire risks. Strictly speaking, your finger doesn’t have to be on the power window switch for flames to erupt – in fact, the danger of the SUVs catching fire even while switched off and unattended is so serious that GM has… Read More
