Reach the recalls site by visiting http://www.recalls.gov/nhtsa.html (opens in a new tab). The Carfax site and many manufacturers’ web pages also provide recall information. The links below point to the current location of Ford and Dodge recall information at these manufacturers’ websites. Many other manufacturers have similar pages, which can be located by doing a Google or Bing search. (Ex. “Honda Recalls”) The VIN or a portion thereof is usually all that is required to get up to date recall information on a specific vehicle.
