In the United States, SUV rollovers account for hundreds of deaths and thousands of fatalities every year. The drivers of sport utility vehicles are more at risk for rollover accidents than the drivers of other vehicles due to the high center of gravity and the narrow track width of SUVs.
Over the years, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has promulgated a number of important safety regulations to aid safety measures during production. This is primarily enforced through its authority to require automakers to recall vehicles that NHTSA finds do not meet established safety standards. Unfortunately, automobile manufactures may sometimes neglect a safety measure during the production of a vehicle. This is why you may receive a recall notification in the mail.
