NHTSA Makes Recall Info Easier to Find

Car-Recalls II

As part of a new ruling, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration will offer a dedicated section on its website (www.safercar.gov) where car owners can type in their vehicle identification number to find out whether their vehicle is part of a pending recall or if the necessary repairs have already been made to their vehicle. Additionally, the regulation requires all automotive manufacturers that sell in the U.S. to provide online access to this information on their customer websites by Aug. 14, 2014.

The Detroit News notes that several manufacturers already comply with this requirement or offer recall information on their customer websites, but as part of this new regulation, all manufacturers will have to update the information weekly.

The new requirements will also make it mandatory for automakers to contact owners with a direct notice within 60 days of announcing the recall to NHTSA and to have some kind of website searchability for uncompleted recalls for various makes and models.

due to the large # of recalls and defects on ford vehicles the NHTSA will be overloaded and will probably crash. they have no idea what they decided to take on. the gov't will never learn.

Johnny Doe, a Government Motors shill, needs to be sued for libel.

Thas good. maybe make it so truck owners get a txt message if there is a recall on their trucks.

This is good news for all of us pickup truck owners.

Toyota is installing all new servers with multi-teraflop hard disk space to run their websites on so that all their recalls will be searchable without crashing the site.

In other random news... remember that Mahindra diesel truck that was planned for the U.S.? Evil Protection Agency killed that too, didn't they? Even that thing looked better than a Toyota Tundra.

Nice try Frank or whoever you are!

They say that on-star will have this feature built in to it so all the recalls will not be missed on all government motors cars and trucks. fiat is gonna install a strobe light on the dash of all its cars and trucks too, that way everyone will see it and get away quickly as possible.

Wow...this is great for FORD and FIAT owners a central database to keep track of all the recalls on their trucks. Good Job!

Unless a person is willing to pay $300,000 for a truck instead of 30,000 for 100% QC checks, there will always be recalls.

If your brand if perfect, then step foreward and with righteous indignation, cast aspersions upon the brands owned by others.

"Jesus faced a mob that was eager to execute a woman caught in adultery. He put a stop to it with a simple challenge: anyone who has no sin in their life should step forward and throw the first stone. That sentence is often cited as a reminder to avoid judging others when there are faults in your own life that need to be addressed.

@Johhny FAG,

You need to get a f'ken life. You are a laughing stock.

Thanks for the laugh f'ken low-life TROLL.

REMINDER: You are trolling if you post comments that are nonconstructive (e.g. XYZ sucks) or personal attacks (e.g. John Doe is an idiot).

Take that stuff to the War Room in the PUTC forums. It has no place in the comments section of stories.

Thoughtful debate and intelligently comparing the merits of one truck/brand versus others is welcomed and appreciated.

@ johnny doe for president and Fix or Repair,

Take that stuff to the War Room in the PUTC forums. It has no place in the comments section of stories.

Thoughtful debate and intelligently comparing the merits of one truck/brand versus others is welcomed and appreciated.

Oh yes Lou and to quote the god of American auto makers the great Mr. Iacocca "Safety doesn't sell"...lol

That sounds like an:

"an eye for an eye"
Exodus and Leviticus

Oh sorry you only like to selective quote the bible on a web page about pickup trucks...lol

@johnny doe...
Will you please get a new first name? Please?

The real Johnny and or johnny.

@Fix Or Repair Daily - You can quote the Old Testament but since the USA is a Christian country, that part of the bible carries less weight than the New Testament.

I was quoting the bible because most of the USA's legal system and even what constitutes fair, just, and civil conversation is built upon biblical/Christian values.

" Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour"
should be the rule for any thread. Brand bashing is just that.

@Lou - I agree. It would hugely improve the quality of PUTC if the posters did follow those basic principles.

So Lou you feel like the word of the Father of Jesus in the old testiment is less important than the word of the Son of God in the New Testiment.

That's not all that makes you moron....what really makes you a moron is that you actually believe that the US legal system is built on Chrstian values.

Finally you blaspheme the word of God on a pickup truck web site!


Psalm 18:32-34 the God who equipped me with strength and made my way blameless. He made my feet like the feet of a deer and set me secure on the heights. He equipped me for war.

Deuteronomy 7:9 Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who keeps covenant and steadfast love with those who love him and keep his commandments, to a thousand generations


Dan Akerson GM: Whether you work in design, product development or on the factory floor, it’s the decisions you make every day that either satisfy customers ... or convince them to shop somewhere else. It’s that simple.

@Phinehas - where did rule of law come from?
Was it from the Hammurabian Code?
or One can talk about British Common Law ?
but where does the concept of right and wrong come from.?

As far as your comment "So Lou you feel like the word of the Father of Jesus in the old testiment is less important than the word of the Son of God in the New Testiment."
1st, you need to learn how to spell. A truly religious person would not misspell "testament".
2nd, if you were really a religious person you'd understand the concept of the "Trinity". God, Jesus, Holy Spirit are one.
3rd, "No One Comes To the Father, But Through Me: John 14:6 ".

Keep the topic on trucks and you might stand a chance.

I love fruit!

I've taken a liking for venison, I might need a pickup to do my deliveries with.

@LOU - Thanks for explaining the concept of the Trinity Lou…I thought it was:

Loser
Obnoxious
Ugly

You seem to think that this is a competition and that I “...might stand a chance...”. Is it Lou? I mean the good book said that:

CHEVY 8:7 (KJV) - Fuel injection introduces potential hazards in engine maintenance due to the high fuel pressures used. Residual pressure can remain in the fuel lines long after an injection-equipped engine has been shut down. This residual pressure must be relieved, and if it is done so by external bleed-off, the fuel must be safely contained.

But I agree with you on one thing Lou, Americans morals are built on Christian values…here is some proof of that (let me know if I get the spelling right Lou):

Eddie L. Long
Joe Barron
Paul Barnes
Tony Alamo
Warren Steed Jeffs
David Barry Eller
Warren Kennell
Ted Haggard
George Alan Rekers
Peter Popoff
Douglas Goodman
Jim and Tammy Faye Bakke
Cedric Eugene Cuthbert
Earl Paulk
Sam Hinn
Fr. Vincent Mercer
Helge Arnold Fossmo
Michael Cleary
Lonnie Latham
Coy Privette

Need I go on….lol…lots to be proud of, but Lou you sound more like a fan of Percy Jocelyn, Paul Crouch or John Church…they like to swing in your direction….don’t drop the soap Lou!

But just to stay on topic…I heard that Jimmy Swaggart drove a Ford pick-up…that figures….lol

@Phinehas - nice try but why not use your real name. Another troll playing for a response.

You've shown your true colours.

"Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns."

Translation - you are a troll.

@Lou
I think there are a bloggers on this site who attempt to come across as 'sane' individuals, but then use aliases to troll with.

Well, I'm glad that yourself and myself and a few others have enough balls to be open and sincere with our blogs.

In real life they are probably the same. Covert. Most trouble makers are like this. Slimelike.

The western world and in particular the more tolerant societies created what we have now.

In Europe the further south and east you go, until you hit the orthodox Christians, values and morals have traditionally be more fundamental. So generally the best democracies started in the north and northwest of Europe.

Christianity has the best ability of all the religions to evolve and shape our progress since the Enlightenment period.

One day another system or culture will evolve from ours and be better. At the moment it the best system on the globe.

I'll be interested to see how the Chinese develop 'our' western system. The Chinese will soon hit a ceiling, if they aren't flexible, they will reach their pinnacle.

We are flexible as a society, not just America, but all free countries. This flexibility will ensure our survival.

Yes we are the trolls...we are children...we are he ones who make a better place so lets start singing...lol

Christ explained the spiritual conditions that would prevail during the kingdom's absence. This interim program includes His revelation of the kingdom mysteries and the church (Matt. 13; 16:18). Because neither the kingdom mysteries nor the church represent the fulfillment of God's Old Testament kingdom promises, the kingdom will remain in a state of abeyance as long as God's present work in the world continues through His interim program. However, one day the church's mission on the earth will be completed resulting in the church's removal from the earth through the rapture.

But until then I'll take a 2014 Tundra Platinum '1794' heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeehaaaaaaawww

I wonder what kind of beer trolls drink?

King of Beers Among ER Patients: Budweiser
The king of beers apparently reigns supreme in an area it may not want to rule over. In a pilot study of 105 people who were seeking treatment at a Baltimore ER and had been drinking, 15% named Budweiser as the alcoholic beverage they had consumed. That percentage stands in contrast to Bud's national market share: 9%. Others on the list in the small study included Steel Reserve, Colt 45, Bud Ice, and King Cobra, NBC Newsreports; 46% of patients named one of those beverages, though together they have just a 2.4% market share. (Vodka, gin, brandy, and cognac were also "overrepresented," notes NBC.)

I like to sit in my truck without any pants or underwear. That's why I always get black leather seats. It is easier to get the skid marks off of them.

More fake posts. This site's attempts at improvement are a joke.
Mike Levine must shudder when he thinks about what has happened to the site he worked so hard to build.
