The recall of vehicles happens much more often than you might think. Major ones such as the currentor tend to make headlines. But the truth is that recall notifications are always issued.
Automakers send notifications via e-mail, e-mail and sometimes over the phone, but they can still be quite easy to miss. Fortunately, keeping track of recall actions is actually a very simple process.
Here you can see how you can find out if your specific car is being recalled and what you can do about it.
. Find your VIN
Your unique 17-character vehicle identification number (VIN) can be found in a number of places. Each car has its VIN printed behind the lower side corner of the windshield, as shown above. You can also find your VIN on your vehicle registration certificate or insurance card, or on a sign on the driver's door.
2. Check the NHTSA database
Go to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall page at www.nhtsa.gov/recalls and enter your VIN. If nothing comes, you are gold. If there are still open memories, go to the third and final step.
You can also use the NHTSA site to monitor vehicle-related products such as car seats, tires or ancillary equipment.
Many car manufacturers also have their own recall portals online.
3. Call your dealer
Recall work can be performed at your local dealer simply by scheduling an appointment. Some recalls are more urgent than others, but anyway, you don't have to wait to complete this work. In some cases the dealer can even arrange for your vehicle to be towed if the issue is particularly serious. And regardless of the type or scope of the recall, all repair work is completed for you free of charge.
For even more peace of mind, you can receive email notifications from NHTSA by signing up at www.nhtsa.gov/alerts. cialis19659005 cialis cialis19459023 23: More Roadshow guides:
