While recalls may seem inconvenient, they’re crucial for driver and passenger safety. A recall is put into effect if a manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has found a vehicle to be unsafe in some way. Recall notices are sent to those who purchased the vehicle in question, informing them that an element of the car is unsafe and action will need to be taken. The manufacturer must correct the issue at no cost to the vehicle owners. If your vehicle has an open recall, just make an appointment with our service department, and our team will repair or replace the recalled part in no time.
The NHTSA is the federal agency responsible for vehicle safety in the United States. This administration provides vehicle safety ratings, helping consumers make informed decisions about which models will provide the most protection on the roads. Their goal is to reduce fatalities, injuries and costs due to road traffic crashes by providing education, conducting research and enforcing safety standards that must be upheld industry-wide.
Planning to buy a pre-owned vehicle? Do a quick check using the NHTSA's search tool and the VIN of the vehicle you’re interested in. You can check by using the vehicle’s year, make and model as well. We also offer a recall search tool on our website. If you’d like to learn more about any pre-owned vehicle on our lot, we’ll be happy to provide a complimentary copy of the vehicle’s CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™.
You’ll hear from the manufacturer via phone, email or first-class mail. The notice will explain the safety issues that were discovered and provide the next steps you should follow.
