In the UK, most insurance policies will not cover recall-related issues since recalls are typically related to manufacturing defects and are the vehicle manufacturer's responsibility. However, suppose the recall-related issue causes damage to your vehicle or results in an accident. In that case, your insurance policy may cover the cost of the damage or the liability resulting from the accident.
If your vehicle is subject to a recall, you must address it as soon as possible. Failure to do this could invalidate your insurance coverage in the event of an accident.
If you have any further questions about how a recall affects your insurance coverage, you should contact your insurance provider to discuss it further.
