Updated VINs will be provided to Carfax on a weekly basis and will enhance recall campaign awareness and encourage campaign repair completion.

"We strive to have recall campaign work completed in a timely fashion," said John Spoon, vice president, Parts and Service, NNA. "By working with Carfax we are making it easier for customers to determine if a vehicle has an open campaign and encouraging campaign service completion."
