Information for Owners

Today's cars are the safest in history thanks to the development of advanced safety technologies and owners reporting problems. If you think you have a problem with your vehicle, tires, equipment or car seats, tell us about it. Your complaints will help determine if a safety problem exists.


NEW! Has your recalled vehicle been repaired? Find out using our VIN search

Owners may not always know their recalled vehicle still needs to be repaired. NHTSA's new search tool lets you:

  • 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
