Owners may not always know their recalled vehicle still needs to be repaired. NHTSA's new search tool lets you enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to quickly learn if a specific vehicle has not been repaired as part of a safety recall in the last 15 years.


 What this VIN search tool covers:



  • Safety recalls that are incomplete on a vehicle

  • Safety recalls conducted over the past 15 calendar years

  • 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 non-safety recall campaigns

  • 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

 See National Highway Transportation Safety Administration to check your vehicle VIN's for recalls....
