How can I tell if my vehicle has been recalled?

The most accurate way to figure out whether your vehicle was built with any defective parts that have become subject to recall, you can simply enter your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) into the U.S. Department of Transportation’s dedicated website. While this system will indicate any incomplete safety recalls for your vehicle over the last 15 years, you should note that it may not identify very recent safety recalls for which all the VINs of affected vehicle have not yet been identified.
If you are concerned about whether your vehicle is equipped with one of the Takata airbags that are now being recalled, you should periodically enter your VIN into the U.S. Department of Transportation’s website for the next few weeks until manufactures generate complete lists of the affected vehicles.
