From an earlier Retiree News post about car recalls

Has you car been recalled?

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reports that 25 percent of recalled vehicles are never brought to the dealer to get fixed. If you purchased your care from a dealership, you’ll receive a recall notification in the mail. But you can take some steps  to endure communication doesn’t slip through the cracks.  The Auto Club of Southern California Research Center (ARC) suggests periodically checking for recalls yourself. At NHTSA’s website, you can do the following:

* Check for open recalls on your vehicle using your car’s 17-digit VIN (vehicle identification number), found on the registration card and on the vehicle dash.

* Each for recalls by make, model, and year.

* Sign up to receive email alerts from NHTSA about the latest recalls.

ARC, also advises that you keep your automakers informed of you ownership information if you buy a used care or change your address. Most manufacturers supply postcards for this purpose in the vehicle’s manual packet.
