Important Note Regarding Auto Recalls

your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA 
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
