Q. Is the letter I got about a vehicle recall from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) a scam?
What is this letter I got about a recall?
Verify if your vehicle has been recalled through the Safety Issues & Recalls webpage provided by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
Lots of people have emailed about this misleading letter. Several people attached scans of the letters in their email and we have forwarded them to the General Counsel of NHTSA.
