December 8, 2003

In a report by NBC on December 3, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) noted that there were 436 recalls issued last year, affecting some 18.3 million cars, trucks and sport utility vehicles. Of those, roughly 5 million have not undergone repair work and remain on the road.While most recalls are issued for safety-related defects, some cover things like vehicle paint and air conditioning problems. The NHTSA keeps a running list of recalls and affected vehicles, which can be searched on the agency's Web site, http://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/cars/problems/recalls/recallsearch.cfm.
