NHTSA Launches Searchable Recall Dashboard

By SEMA Washington, D.C., Staff

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has created a webpage database to retrieve safety recall information for motor vehicles and equipment dating back to 1966. The dashboard is intended to be a user-friendly and transparent way for the public to download recall information. Users may search by keyword and export data in CSV, TSV for Excel, XML and other formats. The dashboard will be updated daily.

The public can also search for open recalls and automaker technical service bulletins at Search parameters include via the VIN, vehicle, equipment, tires and car seats. The public may also download NHTSA’s SaferCar app to stay informed on current recalls.
