Vehicle Recalls Reach a Record High

March 22nd, 2016 Posted in Financial News

shutterstock_309810638Fifty million vehicles operating in the United States have been recalled due to safety issues, but the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) estimates that 25 percent of recalled vehicles are never repaired. That’s why it’s important to be proactive about vehicle recalls.

There are two ways to determine if your vehicle has been recalled:

  • Go to https://vinrcl.safecar.gov/vin and search for your vehicle identification number (VIN). Your VIN can be found in the corner of your vehicle’s windshield where it meets the dashboard or on the driver’s-side door post.
 
  • Call your vehicle’s manufacturer and ask about your vehicle.
 

If you discover that your vehicle has been recalled, you can take it to one of the manufacturer’s dealerships for a free repair. Remember to be proactive about recalls—a vehicle that has been recalled has the potential to endanger its driver, passengers and surrounding traffic.
