This year was full of vehicle recalls. Several big issues affected General Motors and Ford vehicles. This means that millions of people are wondering whether their vehicles need repair work or not. Hence a new VIN search tool has been launched by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The online tool makes it possible for the drivers to learn whether their vehicles are under recall or not. Moreover, the tool provides the opportunity to see whether the vehicle at issue has already been repaired by the manufacturer or not.
The online tool is quite easy to use; the car or truck owner should enter the VIN (Vehicles Identification Number) in the space for search and then view the results. You can try it here: www.safercar.gov/vinlookup.
It should be noted that the NHTSA requires that all major automakers have portals in their websites that would allow consumers look up recalls for their vehicles. Each company is required to update the data once a week or more frequently, if possible.
It should be noted that the deadline for launching the VIN Search Tool was set to be August 14, 2014 and the deadline for site operation was August 20, 2014.
