How does someone find out if their car is recalled?

Recalls are issued in one of two ways: the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which is a government entity that’s in charge of keeping our highways safe, issues a recall based on its analysis of potential problems submitted by drivers. Or, secondly, the manufacturer of the vehicle will issue the recall themselves after becoming aware of the problem. Manufacturers are required to notify those people that own the vehicle that’s been recalled by a physical mailing, if they have your information. Otherwise, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration posts online on their website a recall for any vehicles that have safety issues.
