NHTSA Launches Recall Database

Posted: Updated:

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is hoping to help people who may be driving recalled vehicles.

Experts say roughly 1 out of every 5 cars in the nation is under some kind of recall, so the odds are that you are either driving one, or driving next to one.

The NHTSA just launched a new database to track them down.

The information could also help protect those who are in the market for a used car.

Rosemary Shahan of Consumers for Auto Reliability says, "we're concerned that dealers are going to try to say well now anyone can access this so its up to you to find out."
