How to Find Out If Your Car Has Been Recalled

back

Every year, automotive companies recall millions of vehicles. While car companies do their best to inform drivers, you may still miss their notices. Maybe you bought a used car, or changed your address and the manufacturer didn’t have your info on file. Or perhaps you heard about a recall a long time ago, but it got pushed so far down your priority list that you forgot to take care of it.

No matter the reason, it’s important to check and make sure that the vehicle that you use every day is safe for you and your family. Luckily, nowadays it’s very easy to look for recalls on your car or truck. Here are a few ways you can do so:

Directly contact your auto dealer

Go to your car dealer’s website and figure out who to call or email to find out about recalls. Some car manufacturer websites may also have pages dedicated to recall info, but you may have to do some digging.
