NHTSA Launches Upgraded Recall Notice Dashboard

Earlier this month, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration launched a revamped recall dashboard, designed to help dealers and consumers more easily find important data about their vehicles. You may access the dashboard at this link on the U.S. Department of Transportation’s website.

“This new dashboard provides unprecedented transparency into the recall process,” said Acting Administrator Dr. Steven Cliff, in a news release about the new database. “More than 50 years of recall data are now easily available to the media, researchers, safety advocates, and anyone interested in learning more about vehicle safety. This initiative is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s commitment to safety on our roadways, and it provides increased transparency and accountability to the American people.”

Users can view both open and closed mandatory recall notices spanning several decades, and sort by a number of different categories, including make, model year, recall type and much more. All open recalls for specific vehicles can be found using NHTSA’s Vehicle Identification Number lookup tool.
