Now that 2011 has come to a close, final numbers have come out detailing the total amount of vehicles and vehicle parts voluntarily recalled in the United States by auto manufacturers in conjunction with the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). According to Inautonews.com, there were 593 vehicle recall campaigns in the U.S. in 2011, resulting in roughly 15.5 million vehicles being subjected to some form of recall.
While 15.5 million vehicles is a large number, it is a big decrease from 2010, in where 20.1 million vehicles were recalled. Honda recalled the largest amount of vehicles in 2011, with 3.9 million in the U.S. including the company’s December recall of over 876,000 vehicles due to airbag problems.
While a recall can fix a car with one visit to the dealer, there are many vehicles that require multiple repair attempts to fix a problem.
