The NHTSA website allows visitors to access the car recall and TSB databases where they can pull up information regarding their specific make and model of automobile to determine its recall status. The website also goes into extensive detail about what type of TSB and/or recall was issued and outlines the extent of the problem.
Another way in which to learn about information regarding TSBs and automobile recalls is to go directly to the car manufacturer’s website. Often a car company will post important information on its website as it is a great way to disseminate information to the consumer masses. Depending on the car company, you will most likely be able to enter your make and model information on the website page and you will be met with information relating to any recalls which exist for a specific type of vehicle.
The website may even post additional information about how to remedy the car defect and the importance of doing so at your earliest convenience. Of course, CarJunky.Com is also an excellent resource for information gathering.
