What Should I Do If My Car is Recalled?
Apr 10, 2014 - 2:25 PM - by AutoGuide.com
It's only April and over 13 million vehicles have already been recalled. Here's what you need to do to if yours is one of them.

Recall announcements are often made by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) rather than the automaker. You probably have better things to do than pour over NHTSA's database, so we publish announcements about widespread recalls.

You can also check to see if your car is affected by a recall by going to the "vehicle owners" section of SaferCar.gov and searching for your vehicle. Vehicles aren't the only products that NHTSA requests to be recalled by the manufacturer. Child seats and tires are monitored for safety concerns as well.

Getting Notice
If your car is affected by a new recall, then you can expect to notification in the mail. These letters are sent out by using the state's vehicle registration database.

The letter will inform you that there's a potential safety concern with your vehicle and generally will ask you to take it to an authorized dealer for service. In some cases, like when there's a need for a replacement part, the letter will state when the safety fix will be available and how long the repair will take. In some extreme cases, the letter will even tell you to stop driving your car.

Don't worry if you lost the letter or didn't receive it in the first place. You can still obtain the notice of the recall from the NHTSA website and take it to your local dealership to get help.

Putting Toyota’s Truck to The Frozen Tundra Test
Apr 04, 2014 - 6:09 PM - by AutoGuide.com


Quote:
AutoGuide.com truck expert Stephen Elmer takes the 2014 Toyota Tundra on an Epic Tough Truck Test

AutoGuide.com resident truck expert Stephen Elmer wasn’t born with 4:10 gears, locking differentials and trailer towing specs on the brain, but he might as well have been.

His father is known as the “Canadian Truck King,” so its no surprise that Steve takes to pickups like white on rice. But the King wasn’t pleased when Toyota invited journalists to test the 2014 Tundra. His criticism wasn’t with the truck, but the planned route that did little to test its purported capability. Fast forward a few months and Elmer Sr. and his progeny are tag-teaming the Texas-built truck on a no-holds-barred week-long trip meant as a stress test to benchmark what potential owners can expect.

The daring duo also got their hands on a used Tundra for a frame of reference to see how much the new generation – which has a carryover powertrain – has really been improved. Elmers˛ started their journey outside of Toronto, Canada and will venture into the rough northern reaches of Canada, ending on the country’s east-most reaches in Newfoundland and Labrador. Their route follows the Trans-Labrador Highway, the majority of which is unpaved. With winter coming to an end, much of the path will be mired with mud and loose ground. To top it off, they are also towing a trailer with a snowmobile in it that weighs roughly 4,000 lbs.
