Can Car Dealers In ON Let Defects Go Without A Recall?


In ON a recall happens when a car manufacturer or the government deems that a car model or models have a defect that does not adhere to safety standards, such as faulty seatbelts, steering components, or airbags.

For more information on common defects, see Seaway Hyundai 10 Most Common Vehicle Defects page.

If your car has been recalled, then the car manufacturer or dealer that you purchased your vehicle from will notify you through a letter. If you purchased your vehicle used, you may not receive a letter, as the manufacturer may send it to the original owner first. So, it is important to stay up to date with current recalls. For a free check try our Recall Check Tool. This notification will describe the defect in detail, any safety hazard it poses, and instructions on what to do next.

If the defect is safety related, government laws will require that the car manufacturer perform a recall. Manufacturers cannot let defects go without a recall if it will be a safety issue for users. Manufacturers can often choose to issue a voluntary recall, or wait until they are required to do so. It is in the public interest to get the defects and information to the public as quickly as possible before a serious accident occurs on the road around Cornwall, Massena, or Fort Covington.

Car manufacturers will often work closely with Seaway Hyundai to make sure that they provide repairs, free of charge on recalled Hyundai vehicles. Dealerships are required by law to service the vehicle. Often, the recall letter will detail where you can take your vehicle to be serviced.

Also, contact a Transport Canada agent or Seaway Hyundai if you feel that the problem was not fixed or if there is another problem related to the defect.
