New search tool for recalled vehicles!

Owners may not always know their recalled vehicle needs to be repaired.  The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has released a new online search tool for recalled vehicles, which lets you enter a Vehicle Identification Number to quickly learn if a specific vehicle has not been repaired as part of a safety recall in the last 15 years.  In response to this new feature, chairman of the National Automobile Dealers Association and a Honda/Acura dealer in Montgomery, Al, Forrest McConnell, gave the following statement:

“The new online look-up tool will help new-car dealerships identify whether a used car or light truck has an un-remedied safety recall prior to making a purchase or taking in a trade. It will also help dealerships to determine whether used vehicles in inventory are under recall and to provide used-car shoppers with useful safety recall information.”

Anyone may access the new tool from NHTSA at
