During the manufacturing process, every vehicle goes through a rigorous amount of testing before they arrive at our Shelbyville location.

Manufacturers have dedicated departments that remain constantly aware of potential issues and investigate recurring problems to decide if issuing a recall is warranted.
Informing Shelbyville Drivers of Recall Issues
When a manufacturer receives reporting or discovers a possible recall-worthy issue, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) coordinates with them to determine if the manufacturer must move forward with an announcement. If the decision is made that a recall is appropriate, the manufacturer must deploy its strategy for informing all owners of the vehicle. This is done through a few different avenues. First, Shelbyville owners receive first-class mail with information detailing the specifics of the recall. In addition, major media outlets are informed of the recall, and the issue is broadcast on the news. Manufacturers also issue press releases regarding the incident.
What If I Don’t Hear About a Shelbyville Buick Chevy GMC Recall?
If you’ve experienced recurring issues with your vehicle, or have any reason to believe there may be a recall issued for your specific model, the official NHTSA website logs all recall information, allowing you to look up the information at all times by providing your VIN number.
