How To Check if Your Vehicle Has Been Recalled
Vehicles get recalled for numerous reasons. Besides Takata airbag recalls, our readers have seen the recalls of van doors that open while driving, parking brakes that malfunction, lights that can turn off, airbags that may not deploy, and vehicles that could catch on fire.
In a perfect world there would be no recalled vehicles, but as we all know, our world is imperfect and we need governing bodies to help keep life safe and secure. SaferCar.gov is a division of the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration, or NHTSA, “dedicated to educating the public on how to purchase safe vehicles.” They have tools and resources on vehicle recalls, theft prevention, emergency vehicle safety, and safety tips on car seats, tires, seat belts, teen drivers, and more.
If a new or used vehicle purchase is in your future, make sure to stop by Safercar.gov, you might find that one piece of information you need to make the final decision on what vehicle to take home.
