This helpful link was provided by a friend, as were his comments on it: "This is really good for folks who have purchased a used vehicle. Because unless the manufacture was notified of the new owner all they have is the first owners address to send recall notices to. Also, you never know if the owner before you actually had recall work done on the vehicle. All you need is your VIN number to look up and see if there are any open recalls on your vehicle. If there are take it to the dealership with the information and let them take it from there."
