The Most Common Car Defects You May Encounter

Here are the most common vehicle defects:

  • Airbag: A defective airbag can truly mean the difference between life and death in an accident. It could fail to deploy, deploy incorrectly, or deploy when it is not supposed to. Under these circumstances, a defective airbag can result in severe bodily injuries.
  • Seatbelts: Your seatbelt is one of the most essential safety innovations in your vehicle. Unfortunately, if there is something wrong with it, this lifesaving tool can become a danger to a passenger. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that about 3 million people sustain injuries from seatbelt failure every year.
  • Brakes: Defective brakes are another common and dangerous safety issue that can result in deadly motor vehicle accidents.
  • Engine Problems: Common safety problems with the engine can include engine failures and malfunction, transmission failure, radiator failure, sudden power loss, etc.
  • Fuel pump: The fuel pump carries fuel from a car’s tank to its engine. If this critical part is defective, your car may refuse to start or lose power while you are accelerating.
  • Suspension: The suspension absorbs the bumps in the road that allows your car to drive smoothly. If it is defective, it can create safety issues and the ability to drive the car safely.
  • Power Steering: This allows the driver to safely steer the vehicle. A loss of power steering can lead to accidents. If your car has this defect, lemon laws may cover it and you could possibly file a claim.
  • Electrical Problems: Your car's electrical system consists of the battery, starter, and alternator. The battery provides juice to the starter and the alternator gives the battery the energy it needs to power your car. If one of these parts is not working properly, your car will not start or run correctly.
