Car recalls have become more and more prevalent in the motor industry in recent years. This is probably a bit surprising to many people as we have seen huge advances in technology across the industry. However, while technology in the industry has moved on, so has supply chain management and the need to lower costs. Manufacturers are reducing costs by outsourcing some of the car component manufacturing to other companies around the world. As a result, a car can be made up of parts from numerous different manufacturers and when this happens, inevitably there are problems with the end product. It also adds extra time onto how long for the item to get repaired or fixed which exacerbates the problem and frustrations for the car owners.
