Decrease Safety Recall Liability, Increase Safety Recall Warranty Reimbursement

Decrease Safety Recall Liability, Increase Safety Recall Warranty Reimbursement

Dealers can check vehicles from within the program to learn their safety recall status.

AutoMap has integrated AutoAp’s highly accurate and comprehensive Safety Recall Management Technology into their solution, helping dealers reduce safety recall liability and increase warranty reimbursement revenue in addition to their automated vehicle electronic-tagging, location and flooring audit services.

Auto dealers can now reduce their safety recall liability and customers’ risk inside of AutoMap’s automated tracking service with AutoAp, Inc.’s comprehensive, accurate and timely safety recall technology that adds on-demand recall discovery and status verification capability.  

AutoMap’s revolutionary vehicle location system helps dealerships reduce costs and improve workflow that simplifies dealer operations — saving time and resources while maximizing productivity.

While obtaining vehicle location status has always been easy with AutoMap, gaining insight to safety recall status has been time-consuming and error-prone — until now.

“After reviewing potential sources of safety recall information, we found that AutoAp, Inc. provides the highest-quality safety recall information available in the industry,” AutoMap CEO Mark Sargeant said. “AutoMap selected AutoAp based on our strict requirements and standards to provide dealerships the most accurate and timely safety recall technology available.”

Under license from AutoAp, AutoMap’s solution easily provides dealerships an accurate and on-demand way to know the safety recall status of vehicles in their inventory. Dealers can check vehicles from within AutoMap to learn their safety recall status.

As a result, dealers can make even better vehicle purchasing decisions by knowing the accurate safety recall status of vehicles and get them repaired sooner.

Continuing Market Problem Due to the ever-increasing safety technologies being designed into new vehicles, safety recalls continue being issued in record numbers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). As a result of these historically high numbers, franchised car dealers have increased liability risk asvehicle safety recalls have gained significant media attention. Although manufacturers and their suppliers are the source of vehicle defects, auto dealers are being held liable for selling vehicles with open safety recalls, which may be the most significant legal exposure that a dealership has today.

“Dealers can find safety recalls earlier, which helps increase compliance, make their process more efficient and increases profitability. We are pleased to have partnered with AutoAp – their CEO literally wrote the book on this topic (Safety Recalls: Think You’re Covered?),” Sargeant said.

Current Sources Have Significant Errors – Dealers who use to verify the safety recall status of off-brand vehicles put themselves at risk from missed recalls (“false negatives”) from NHTSA’s site. Vehicle history reports can also have errors and timing delays from the OEMs and NHTSA, with often-inconsistent recall status, which further increases dealers’ liability and reduces consumer safety.

“Dealerships find it difficult to stay on top of safety recalls, due to the size and complexity of the problem,” AutoAp, Inc. CEO Mark Paul said. “Worse, they think they’re ‘covered’ with current systems. Our proprietary processes generate the most-accurate, multi-sourced safety recall status available, anywhere. We are excited to partner with AutoMap, so that we can reach more dealers even faster to help address this significant problem.”

AutoAp’s Safety Recall Management technology can also be purchased as standalone dealer solutions to generate revenue and decrease liability for vehicle acquisition; for sold-customer recall service; or as integrated into third-party dealer service providers like AutoMap.
