Is Your Car Subject to a Recall?

April 27, 2019

The National Highway Traffic Safety Association (NHTSA) website includes a page that covers safety issues and recalls. You enter your car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to see if your vehicle (cars and motorcycles) are subject to any recalls.

What this VIN search tool covers

+ Vehicle safety recalls that are incomplete

+ Vehicle safety recalls conducted over the past 15 calendar years

+ Vehicle safety recalls conducted by major light auto automakers, including motorcycle manufacturers.

What this VIN search tool does not cover

Completed safety recall information

Manufacturer customer service or other nonsafety recall campaign

International vehicles *

Very recently announced safety recalls for which not all VINs have been identified

Safety recalls that are more than 15 years old (except where a manufacturer offers more coverage)

Safety recalls conducted by small vehicle manufacturers, including some ultra-luxury brands and specialty applications

* Although the webpage says it does not cover international vehicles, we tried entering Japanese, British, and German VINs and the search did work.
