According to the National Transportation Safety Board, investigators said that for the 3.2 million tires recalled from 2009-2013, the recall completion rate was only 44 percent; this rate includes tires no longer in service. In a typical tire recall, the NTSB said, only about 20 percent of affected tires are returned to the manufacturer. By contrast, about 78 percent of vehicles recalled due to other defects are eventually serviced.
Currently, there is a uniform system in place for consumers or tire dealers to determine if their tire has been recalled. To find out more detail, click here.
