How to check any car for recalls

You can also visit the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) recall lookup page. Enter your 17-character VIN into the provided search field and the results will show the number and type of safety recalls that apply to your specific car. If you don’t get any results, then your vehicle isn’t part of a current recall.

You can find the VIN on most vehicles by standing outside the front windshield and peering down at the lower driver-side corner of the dashboard. It can be a little difficult to see, so look carefully. Some cars will also have it printed on an emblem on the driver-side door jamb.

Insider tip: You can copy and paste your VIN directly into the NHTSA’s website with your iPhone or Android phone.

How to copy text from your iPhone

  • Take a photo of the VIN with your iPhone.
  • Open the image in Photos and tap and hold the number and tap Copy.
  • Now you can paste the text anywhere you need to.

How to copy text from your Android phone
