Auto Recall Safety Steps
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the federal agency responsible for overseeing automotive safety and vehicle recalls, maintains a comprehensive database of recalled vehicle information. The NHTSA’s vehicle recall website is housed at https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/.
Steps to check your recall:
- Find your Vehicle Identification Number (located on insurance car, title or driver side door)
- Go to SaferCar.Gov
- Type in Vehicle Identification Number into search box
- If a recall has been issued, contact your dealership for a replacement
