With Clear Car Leasing the recall process is easy and straightforward


When a car manufacturer suspects that one of their models has an issue related to safety, or doesn’t comply with Government standards, the vehicle might have to be recalled.

The Vehicle and Operator Service Agency (VOSA) are in charge of conducting recalls which are only issued if there’s a legitimate concern over safety.

If a manufacturer decides to recall a car, VOSA is contacted and a recall number is issued.

The vehicle owner is then contacted and in the case of a lease car, the finance provider is made aware of the decision as they remain the owner of the vehicle for the duration of your lease agreement.
