Vehicle Recalls

Virginia State Police urges you to get in the habit of checking for recalls. Consider it part of the routine maintenance of your vehicle.

Millions of vehicles are recalled in the United States every year due to important safety issues.

Recalls should be addressed quickly and should never be ignored.

If your vehicle is recalled, the manufacturer will send a letter to the address that you have listed on your DMV vehicle registration. However, people often overlook recall notices or move without updating their address. It is best to be proactive to make sure your vehicle is safe to drive.

Check for Recalls

To check for outstanding recalls on your vehicle, get your vehicle identification number (VIN) and visit NHTSA’s recall lookup site:

https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls. You can also call NHTSA’s Safety Hotline at 1(888) 327-4236.

Vehicle owners can sign up for NHTSA recall alerts by clicking on the following link: https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/nhtsa/subscriptions.

Get Your Vehicle Fixed

Contact a dealership in your area to schedule necessary repairs. Vehicle manufacturers are required by law to make recall repairs at no cost to the customer.
