What’s a Recall?

This is when a specific model of the manufacturer or NHTS has a safety issue. This issue can lead to an increased risk of injury or even death, which is why your vehicle should no longer be on Rocky Mount roads. If this happens, you will get notified with a safety recall notice from the manufacturer, which offers all the details of the safety issue. The manufacturer is required to cover the cost of repairing the vehicle, so when you bring your car to our Stanleytown dealership, you won’t have to worry about payment.

What is the NHTSA?

They are the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a federal authority that regulates vehicle safety and upholds vehicle safety standards. You can find helpful safety information on vehicles from different manufacturers, so you can rest assured that you know everything you should know about the car you’re driving.

How Can I Check if my Car Has a Safety Recall?

Recall information is on the NHTSA website under recalls, which you can search for any vehicle using the car’s Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) or the car’s year, make, and model. There’s also a GM recall page for GMC vehicles. If there’s a CARFAX® Vehicle History Report™, it will also have the information needed on safety recalls.
