Manufacturers, Safety Council Partner on Recalls

By Staff Writer October 21, 2018

Toyota Motor North America has joined FCA and The National Safety Council in support of the council’s Check To Protect campaign, which seeks to reduce the number of vehicles with open recalls.

Toyota and the council will work together to spread the word to vehicle owners about the importance of checking for open recalls and, if necessary, getting them repaired for free at a dealership. Owners can learn their vehicle's recall status quickly by visiting

Nearly one in four vehicles on the road have an open, unrepaired recall. Some owners are not aware of their recall status, while others know they have a recall but do not perceive the issue to be important. Many of these recalls involve Takata airbags that have the potential to spray sharp metal fragments into the vehicle, causing injuries or even death to drivers or passengers if these defective airbags deploy.
