Feds Offer Online Recall Search Tool

August 20, 2014

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration unveiled a new online tool on its website that lets vehicle owners quickly determine whether a specific vehicle has any pending safety recall repairs that need to be scheduled and completed.  

Vehicle owners simply enter the vehicle identification number, and the free online search tool lets them know whether that vehicle has an open recall. All major light vehicle and motorcycle brands can be searched. 

Additionally, all major light vehicle and motorcycle manufacturers are now required to provide VIN search capability for uncompleted recalls on their own websites. That mandate took effect Aug. 20. The automaker recall information must be updated at least weekly.

To access the search tool, click here.
