4 common car defects

When you buy a car, you expect it to be safe for you and any passengers. You should not need to fear that a defect will harm you or someone else in your vehicle. Unfortunately, vehicle defects occur all too often, and they can have deadly consequences. 

The first step to being safe is being informed. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration investigates potential vehicle defects and provides a list of vehicle recalls. Here are some faulty components that often make the list:

1. Airbags

Your car airbags reduce the physical impact you experience should you ever get in a collision. A properly working airbag may save your life. Sadly, not all airbags work according to plan. Certain airbags may deploy too slowly, deploy with too much force or fail to deploy at all. 

2. Steering systems

The steering components in your car must work as intended, so you can control your vehicle. If your steering system fails, you may lose control. Steering issues may result because of a physical flaw, computer defect or a linkage problem. Partial or complete loss of control can cause serious harm.

3. Tires

Tires give your car traction and stability. However, not all tires are reliable. Some tires may blow out because of tread separation or a sudden loss in pressure. 

4. Engines

Of course, the engine is one of the most important components of your vehicle. The engine may fail or malfunction for a multitude of reasons. Defects to engines include failure to start, overheating and faulty spark plugs.

You deserve to have peace of mind about the vehicle you drive every day. Make sure you stay up to date about any recalls and take legal action if you think you are the victim of an auto defect.
