What are the most common types of motor vehicle defects?

Modern cars have so many complicated electrical components and computer systems, it's a miracle that vehicle manufacturers can build and design something that approaches reliability. Although they do build reliable automobiles, errors can and do occur during the design and manufacturing process that could lead to potentially deadly problems.

Here are a few of the most common automotive defects that vehicle buyers encounter in this regard:

Frame and body defects: Frame and body defects could hinder a vehicle's ability to withstand certain types of car accidents. They could also interfere with a car's ability to track down the road in a straight line and maneuver through traffic.

Braking system defects: Your car's braking system is the first line of defense against a crash. When a car can't slow down or stop correctly, accidents could result.

Cooling system, electrical system and fuel system defects: Cooling, electrical and fuel system defects could result in fires. Sometimes, these fires are spontaneous and other times, they are triggered by accidents.

Problems in the passenger compartment: The design and manufacture of passengers compartments must be done with care to make sure they are as safe as possible for the people inside them. One error or negligent mistake could put the lives of drivers and passengers at stake.

When you buy a new car, everything will look so clean and perfect that you will never know if your new automobile has something dangerously wrong with it. If you or your family was taken by surprise and suffered a serious injury or death because of an automotive design or manufacturing error, you might want to learn more about what state and federal product liability law says about your injuries or losses.
