AAA Applauds Launch of Vehicle Identification Number Recall Database
ORLANDO, FL Aug. 20, 2014: Statement By Bob Darbelnet, President and CEO of AAA: "AAA applauds the launch of the NHTSA vehicle identification database that enables consumers to identify the status of any vehicle recall by Vehicle Identification Number (VIN). The huge volume of recalls from automobile makers just this year clearly points to the need for better consumer access to data related to the safety of their vehicle. If accurately maintained by OEMs, the database will provide a single-source tool to help millions of motorists more easily find recall information. The information will also inform prospective automobile purchasers of unresolved recalls. This will go a long way in helping consumers ensure their vehicle is safe to drive."
