ALBANY, GA (WALB) - More than 1.4 million vehicles that people are driving, buying or selling in Georgia have at least one unfixed safety recall, according to Carfax.
"Many people in Georgia still are unnecessarily risking their lives by not staying informed or taking action when their vehicle is under a recall," said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax. "Millions of vehicles will likely be recalled this year, adding to the ones already with outstanding airbag recalls, ignition switch recalls, electrical system recalls and more. There's still much hard work to be done, but resources like myCarfax are helping people find and fix more recalls."
While approximately one out of every five vehicles in Georgia is affected, Carfax has identified ten places in the state where you're most likely to find unfixed recalls:
