NHTSA Unveils New Vehicle Recall Alert Service

Consumers who sign up for the service can elect to receive recall notices via e-mail, RSS-feed, cell phone or PDA as they are released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA}.

The U.S. Department of Transportation on Nov. 7 announced a new automated vehicle recall alert service that is free to all consumers.

Consumers who sign up for the service can elect to receive recall notices via e-mail, RSS-feed, cell phone or PDA as they are released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). The new service builds on a program launched earlier this year that provides automated recall information for child safety seats and tires.

NHTSA currently releases roughly 600 vehicle recalls each year. Approximately one out of four notices is ignored by consumers. Consumers may sign up for all recall notices, or may customize the notices for specific vehicles.

To learn more, or to sign up for the service, visit www.safercar.gov and select "E-mail recall notifications."
