25% of recalled cars in U.S. aren't fixed


One of every four cars recalled in the U.S. isn’t fixed, leaving millions of potentially dangerous vehicles on the road.

Some car owners mistake safety recall notices for junk mail and toss them without opening them. In some cases, owners may not think a recall is serious and opt not to get their cars fixed right away — or at all.

“Our data suggests that there are 36 million cars that are on the road that have an unfixed recall,” said Christopher Basso, public relations manager for Carfax, a company that provides vehicle history reports. “That’s all the recalls that don’t get fixed year after year, that compound year after year.”

General Motors Co. wants a 100-percent completion rate on its high-profile recall of 2.59 million Chevrolet Cobalts, Saturn Ions and other small cars for defective ignition switches that have been linked to at least 13 deaths. GM says more than 154,000 ignition switches have been replaced. Recall fixes are free to owners, but certainly not to GM: The automaker said Monday that second-quarter recalls will cost it some $700 million, on top of $200 million in the first quarter.
