FALL BACK is time to check on Recalls issued for your vehicle

The team at inwheeltime.com wants all of our readers to be sure they are on top of vehicle recalls that may include vehicles they own.

Our friends at NHTSA have asked us to remind you that – as you reset your clocks ending Daylight Savings Time this weekend – it is a good time to check for recalls on your vehicle(s). 

For most people, the end of Daylight Saving Time on Sunday means gaining an extra hour of sleep, and maybe a reminder to change smoke detector batteries.

We encourage you to add a new tradition to your safety essentials list when falling back and springing forward: Checking for vehicle safety recalls. More importantly, to register to be notified of any future recalls as they may be issued.

Don’t risk your safety, that of your loved ones, or others on the road by failing to address any open vehicle recall. Taking a few minutes maintaining the family car can help keep everyone safe on the road. Remember: “Safe Cars Save Lives.”

Take these steps to protect yourself and your family:

Check for Recalls. Visit NHTSA.gov/recalls and enter your vehicle’s 17-digit vehicle identification number (VIN). In seconds, you’ll know if your vehicle is subject to a safety recall.

Get Alerted. Sign up for Recall Alerts. If your vehicle is included in a future recall, you’ll receive an e-mail letting you know.

If you think your vehicle may have a safety-related defect that isn’t part of a current recall, contact NHTSA. Even a single complaint is enough to trigger a recall. Contact NHTSA online or by calling the agency’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236.

Stay safe by checking for recalls, getting any open recalls fixed and encouraging your friends, family, and neighbors to do the same. For more information visit NHTSA.gov/Recalls.

Download the SaferCar App. With NHTSA’s free SaferCar app, you can get recall information sent to your phone. Download our updated app, for Android and iOs, add your vehicle and equipment, and we’ll send you an alert if a safety recall is issued.
