23% Of Cars On The Road In Hialeah Have Been Recalled And Never Fixed

Maybe you will want to even more careful when driving on the roads in South Florida from now on.

A new report from car history company Carfax says that over 2.7 million cars in Florida have at least one unfixed safety recall.

South Florida cities perform particularly bad in the study with over 23% of cars on the road in Hialeah and 21% of the cars in Miami having recalled elements that have never been fixed.

“Many people in Florida still are unnecessarily risking their lives by not staying informed or taking action when their vehicle is under a recall,” Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax said in a press release. “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.”

The company says that people can use one its free tools- www.mycarfax.com to see if their car has been recalled.
