NHTSA Launches Interactive, Searchable Recall Dashboard

NHTSA Launches Interactive, Searchable Recall Dashboard

Website makes over 50 years of recall data easily available to the public.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has unveiled a new cloud-based recall dashboard to make searching for auto safety recall data easy and efficient. The dashboard offers user-friendly and transparent ways to sort, filter, visualize and export recall data. 

“This new dashboard provides unprecedented transparency into the recall process,” said Dr. Steven Cliff, NHTSA’s acting administrator. “More than 50 years of recall data are now easily available to the media, researchers, safety advocates, and anyone interested in learning more about vehicle safety. This initiative is part of the U.S. Department of Transportation’s commitment to safety on our roadways, and it provides increased transparency and accountability to the American people.”

The dashboard will be updated daily.

The new dashboard allows users to sort and filter data, search by keyword, and export data in CSV, TSV for Excel, XML, and other formats. It also presents data in easy-to-read charts and graphs.  

Previously, NHTSA made its recall data available through a bulk download, requiring users to download large data files and import them into a database like Microsoft Access. This has long been available to the public, but this new dashboard makes that information easier to access and analyze. 

NHTSA encourages everyone to search for open recalls by using NHTSA’s VIN Look-Up Tool and to download its SaferCar app to stay informed on current recalls.
