You might think that if you drive a luxury car, there is no chance in heck that your baby will be recalled for any reason.
Think again.Luxury cars are not exempt. Remember, just like that Toyota Corolla or that Honda Civic you used to drive back in high school, human beings–with the help of some robotics–makes cars. And human beings are not faultless. As they say, it happens.
One luxury name plate, Lexus, recently recalled over 367,000 of its popular RX SUV because of loose clips in the center console that could permit the carpet to slip and interfere with the driver’s attempt to get to the accelerator pedal. Other luxury brands that had to bite the bullet include Cadillac, DaimlerChrysler, Infiniti, Mercedes-Benz, and Volvo.
Our take? It should be noted that most of the recalls were made to fix things that could potentially cause problems. And not all models in a recall may be affected. Still, the lesson here is don’t be so snooty if you happen to be driving a luxury car. The say, ‘For who the bells toll, they may toll for thee’ is all too real with anything human-made.
