Vehicle Safety Recalls

Vehicle manufacturers take safety very seriously with all companies having robust procedures to undertake recalls if a safety related fault is found in a vehicle model. As the official representatives of a vehicle marque, MIA members carry out safety related recall campaigns which involve:

  1. Identifying the vehicles in which the fault may occur (note that with the vast majority of safety recall campaigns actual failure rates are extremely low);
  2. with the help of NZTA, getting the updated records of the registered owners; and
  3. contacting these vehicle owners to have the vehicle inspected and repaired (all free of charge) at the nearest franchise dealership.
