Niagara Gazette — If the agency agrees with the ODI’s recommendations, ODI may send a Recall Request Letter to the manufacturer.
I get tons of e-mail from across the country, asking me if there’s a recall on a particular vehicle. What most folks don’t realize is that the NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Administration) has the most extensive recall database on the Internet! Just go to www.safercar.gov and search recalls. Once there, you can run down any recall on any vehicle that has ever graced America’s roadways, clear back to the 1900s! Not only do you have access to these recalls, but you also have access to a TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) database, a child safety seat recall database, an ongoing defect investigations, a Complaint database, and many other topics too numerous to discuss in this forum. I strongly suggest that you bookmark this site as an automotive resource.
