How do I find out if my car has a recall?


Sometimes, car recalls are announced via the news, but other times you may not know your car is affected. Typically, a notice is sent to you from the manufacturer in the mail. If you don’t receive a notice, you can check your vehicle’s VIN recall status by using the form on this page. Simply enter your vehicle’s VIN number, which is located on the lower left of your vehicle’s windshield.

What happens when your car is recalled?


If a part on your vehicle has been recalled, the manufacturer notifies the car owner with the problem or defect, encouraging them to take the vehicle to the dealership for repair as soon as possible. VIN recalls occur because the part, car design, software, or any other aspect of the vehicle wasn’t made as it was intended.

VIN recalls do not expire, however, we recommended bringing your vehicle to Royal Gate Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram as soon as possible to have the repair taken care of.
