Learn About Vehicle Recalls with NHTSA
For most people, the end of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday means gaining an extra hour of sleep, and maybe a reminder to change smoke detector batteries. However, we encourage you to add a new tradition to your safety essentials list when falling back and springing forward: Checking for vehicle safety recalls.
Don’t put yourself, loved ones, or others on the road at risk by failing to fix any unrepaired vehicle recall. Taking a few minutes to maintain the family car can help keep everyone safe on the road. Remember: “Safe Cars Save Lives.”
Take these steps to protect yourself and your family:
Check for Recalls. Visit NHTSA.gov/recalls and enter your vehicle’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN). In seconds, you’ll know if your vehicle has an unrepaired safety recall.
Get It Fixed. If it does have a recall, contact your dealer to schedule a repair. Every recall is fixed for FREE.
Get Alerted. Sign up for Recall Alerts. If your vehicle is included in a future recall, you’ll receive an e-mail letting you know.
