Reminder to Check Your Vehicle for Recalls

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) issued 881 auto recalls in 2019, applying to a total of over 38 million vehicles.

Vehicle defects can result in injuries and death to drivers. Despite the danger presented, many people are either unaware that their vehicle has been recalled or do not take measures to have the problem fixed. James Owens, acting director of the NHTSA spoke about this surprising fact. “Unfortunately, the numbers are a lot lower than you’d think they are. Sometimes not even half,” said Owens.

The great news is that it’s very easy to check for recalls on your vehicle. Find your VIN number on the driver’s side dashboard or driver’s side door jamb. Visit NHTSA’s VIN Search Tool and type in your VIN number.

Don’t assume that a newer vehicle has not been recalled. They can apply to vehicles of any age. If your vehicle has been recalled, you may be concerned about the cost of repairing the vehicle but not to worry. Dealerships are required to repair recall defects at no charge to the driver.
