Automobile recalls continue to make the news, with nearly 700,000 vehicles being recalled so far this month in the U.S. to repair safety-related defects. Unfortunately, far too many motorists seem to be tuning out the long-running litany of reports and are ignoring recall notices issued for their rides.

According to data compiled by J.D. Power, more than 45 million vehicles that were the subject of safety recalls issued between 2013 and 2015 had yet to be brought in for covered repairs by summer’s end. This includes a disturbingly high number of models recalled to fix potentially deadly faulty airbag inflators manufactured by auto supplier Takata.

Last week the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirmed an 11th U.S. fatality linked to vehicles having Takata airbags. Though the vehicle in question – a 2011 Honda Civic – had long been the subject of a recall to replace them, its owner had neglected to take the car in for the necessary repairs. And this was despite the automaker’s “Def Con Level 5″ warning back in June that owners should stop driving affected vehicles altogether until they could be repaired
