- Enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to quickly learn if a specific vehicle has not been repaired as part of a safety recall in the last 15 years
- Directly access the recalls databases of major vehicle and motorcycle manufacturers
- Get the relevant recall information so you can contact the manufacturer or dealer about the repair if it was part of a safety recall
