WASHINGTON--Aug. 14, 2013: The Association of Global Automakers is pleased with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA) announcement today that lets manufacturers continue to provide consumers information related to all open recalls for both safety and emissions for a specific VIN, as well as any available customer satisfaction campaigns on their websites.

We are happy with NHTSA's decision not to create an additional database. Letting manufacturers continue to host recall information on their own websites will avoid potential confusion for consumers looking to find recall information quickly and efficiently.

Global Automakers' members currently make vehicle recall information available to consumers through many channels, including: manufacturer websites; toll-free numbers; dealers; and through arrangements with third-party providers of vehicle history information. Through these channels, consumers can determine whether a specific vehicle has been involved in a recall action, and whether or not that vehicle has had the recall repair completed.

The Association of Global Automakers represents international motor vehicle manufacturers, original equipment suppliers, and other automotive-related trade associations. We work with industry leaders, legislators, and regulators to create the kind of public policy that improves vehicle safety, encourages technological innovation, and protects our planet. Our goal is to foster a competitive environment in which more vehicles are designed and built to enhance Americans' quality of life. For more information, visit Global Automakers .
