Get The Government To Email You About Car Recalls

If your car manufacturer thinks your engine might catch on fire, it’s better to know sooner rather than later. You can streamline the process for discovering any car recalls by signing up with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Recall Notification by Email program.

Sign up for the program at this NHTSA page. You can tailor your updates to categories such as tires, child restraints, or motorcycles, as well as receive updates for all vehicles. There’s also the option to receive notifications about specific makes and model years.

The program has been in operation for about three years now. To make sure you get the messages, you might want to add to your contacts list.
