How to Check for Vehicle Recalls

2021 Mazda CX-5 Connected Services

 

You’ve just noticed some odd issue with your car while driving down the road in Oshkosh or Ripon. You do a little research and find out that other people who own the same make and model have the same issue. That may leave you wondering, “Does my vehicle have a recall?”

 

 

If that’s your situation, don’t worry. Doing a vehicle recall check is easy. We explain below how to check for vehicle recalls by VIN, vehicle recalls by manufacturer, and vehicle recalls by make and model. Do vehicle recalls expire? We’ll answer that, too.

How to Find Out if My Vehicle Has a Recall

If you’re wondering, “Does my vehicle have a recall?”, like so many other Sheboygan drivers, the U.S. government has a site for you, and it’s easy to use. Just follow the steps below to do a vehicle recall check:

How to Check for Vehicle Recalls by VIN

  • Go to NHTSA.gov/recalls.
  • Click or tap “VIN”.
  • Enter your car’s VIN in the search field on the page.
  • Review the results.

How to Check for Vehicle Recalls by Make and Model

  • Go to NHTSA.gov/recalls.
  • Click or tap “vehicle”.
  • Enter your car’s year, make, and model in the search field on the page.
  • Review the results.

How to Check for Vehicle Recalls by Manufacturer

  • Go to NHTSA.gov/recalls.
  • Click or tap “vehicle”.
  • Enter your car’s manufacturer in the search field on the page.
  • Review the results.

Do Vehicle Recalls Expire?

So, you’ve done a vehicle recall check, and you see your vehicle listed. But the recall was started several years ago. Do vehicle recalls expire? They do not, even if you bought your car used and were not the owner of the vehicle when it was recalled. However, the dealer may charge you for the repair if your vehicle is more than ten years old.
