New York Adds Recall Checks To Vehicle Inspection Process

New York has implemented checks for open recalls during the vehicle inspection process. More than 10,000 inspection stations now have the ability to search for unfixed safety and emissions recalls through a free search tool developed jointly by Carfax, the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and the Association of Global Automakers. Drivers of vehicles with open recalls are notified at the time of inspection, and recall details are included on the state inspection report. According to Carfax, over 2 million vehicles on New York roads (one out of every six) have open recalls.
