Honda Recall FAQ

Have questions about the recalls on your car? Here are some of the most common questions our Honda dealership in Joplin been asked about the entire auto recall process.

How do I find recalls on my car?

Manufacturers are required by law to inform owners of any recalls by mail. If you receive one of these letters, you will have all the information you need to schedule a recall repair at an auto service center near you.

You can also perform a recall lookup by VIN. This can be done on the NHTSA website or, if you're a Honda owner, by using the Honda Recall Lookup form above. Searching car recalls by VIN is the easiest way to stay informed. 

Do I need to get my car recall fixed or repaired?

While it's not required by law to address your auto recall, it is always in your best interest to do so. Recalls are issued because of safety concerns; if you wait to get your car recall remedied, each mile you drive puts you at greater risk. Whether it's an old Takata airbag recall, a Honda fuel pump recall, or another type of NHTSA recall, it's important that you get it taken care of promptly. 

Can I drive my car if it's recalled?

Again, your safety is always impacted by an automotive recall. The risk of driving your car without addressing its recalled component can be relatively low to incredibly high. For instance, not remedying a Honda airbag recall would increase your risk of injury in the event of a crash, while something like a Honda DC outlet recall might not be dangerous. 

Am I required to get my Honda recall repaired if I'm leasing?

In most situations, you are not required to address your Honda recall as a lessee. However, always look at your contract for stipulations.

If your car recalls are found to be the cause of an accident, however, you may be held liable for all damages, and any Honda GAP coverage on your lease may be revoked. Speak with your Honda financing team for more information.

How long does a Honda recall repair take?

As with all auto repairs, there is no hard and fast rule on recall repair wait times. In some cases, fixes may be done in an afternoon, while others may require a week or longer - it all depends on replacement part availability and current workload.

If you'd like an estimated wait time for your Honda recall in Joplin, speak with a member of the Roper Honda service team.

Yes, all work for vehicle recalls should be 100% free. This includes remedies for older models, like 1997 Honda Accord recalls, as well as new manufacturer recalls, like the Honda Insight recall for 2020 and 2021 models.
