Vehicle Safety Recalls

From time to time, vehicle manufacturers issue voluntary or compulsory recalls which relate to vehicle safety.  It is important to check that your vehicle has no outstanding recalls, and if it does, have the vehicle recall action completed by the vehicle manufacturer through their dealer network.


Australia

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission (ACCC) administers product recalls in Australia:

  • A list of all active and historic vehicle related recalls can be viewed on the Product Safety Australia website.
