What is wrong with your car? Vehicle recalls.
Things go wrong with our cars as they age. It helps if you know which problems are likely to develop in your model.
Vehicle recalls in the news such as Toyota cars are easy to find, but older cars have their design faults and recalls too and this is a good source of information if considering repairs to your used automobile.
Motorists trying to discover what is wrong with their car this article with links to information about faults in car makes and models going back as many years as I can find, and covering as many models as possible.

Fortunately some terrific sites have done the hard work for me and to keep my word on this, I provide the links below. If you know of others please let me know in the comments capsule below.
Things that go wrong.
If you have owned a few different makes and models of cars, you may have noticed different problems have happened with the differing make or model of cars you have owned.
The problem may be an accessory that stops working properly, a globe that blows often, a heater that doesn't provide enough heat, a steering pump that fails regularly, or at the other end of the scale, ...... complete failure of the vehicle for no apparent or obvious reason.
You will notice some faults are common and expensive in some models, while others have smaller problems that are cheap to fix. Comparing makes and models on these sites can indicate which cars to avoid buying too!
Enjoy your search.
