Common Automobile Defects
An automobile defect can generally be described as any automobile-related mechanical failure caused by poor design or manufacturing. These defects may involve something as large as an engine or as small as a single bolt, something as important as a steering wheel or as seemingly unimportant as a seat adjuster. If uncorrected, automobile defects can lead to serious, life-threatening accidents, and certain defects have caused widespread injury.

Recognizing Common Car Defects
Automobile defects are incredibly varied, and something as seemingly innocuous as a malfunctioning window control or seat adjuster can cause serious injury. Some of the most serious auto defects include:
- Malfunctioning steering
- Axle and wheel defects
- Seatbelt and airbag failures
- Brake failure
- Fuel tank problems
- Engine malfunction
- Accelerator malfunction
It is important to understand that an injury can stem from virtually any malfunctioning piece of equipment. Ultimately, it is the responsibility of the designer and manufacturer of the vehicle to provide a safe and working car.
