What is a Safety Recall?


    An auto recall occurs when a manufacturer or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that a car model (or several models) has a safety-related defect or does not comply with a federal safety standard. When this happens, the automaker will alert owners to the problem and usually offer a free repair.


Want to know if your car has a safety recall? 


     Owners may not always know their recalled vehicle still needs to be repaired. NHTSA's new search tool lets you enter a Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to quickly learn if a specific vehicle has not been repaired as part of a safety recall in the last 15 years.

Does Northtown Auto Liquidators fix open safety recalls?


    Northtown Auto Liquidators strives to have all of the open safety recalls on our vehicles completed. Most of our vehicles DO have the recalls completed,however, some of our cars may still have open safety recalls on them. There are several reasons for this, but at the core is the fact that the current recall  system is based on the manufacturer’s relationship with its dealers and registered vehicle owners, and not with independent dealers. This means that if we have a vehicle and an open recall comes out on that vehicle, the manufacture doesn't directly notify us. Among other things, this means that manufacturers have not authorized Northtown Auto Liquidators to complete safety recall repairs and close out open safety recalls.
