How Do I Check for Recalls on My Toyota?

GetHuman is a customer-oriented company that provides simple guides for consumers to solve their service problems. While we aim to achieve a DIY outcome, we also provide the contact information for big companies such as Toyota. Therefore, you have the option of solving your problem on your own or seeking the help of customer care agents.

You probably don't put much thought into the safety protocols of your vehicle. Like most technological advancements, automotive products are prone to wear and tear. That's why manufacturers provide vehicle recall services as a safety precaution.

A manufacturer will issue a recall if it determines that equipment, vehicles, tires, or car seats fail to meet minimum safety standards or pose unreasonable safety risks. The good thing about the recall process is that your manufacturer will service your machine and fix the issue free of charge, regardless of the amount of repair work needed. All you have to do is take your vehicle to the service dealer after getting a notification.

Toyota is among the companies that commit to enhance the safety and quality of its products via recalls. The company oversees a global policy that initiates a recall campaign to replace dilapidated products. Here's how you can check whether your Toyota vehicle is affected by the recall campaign.

The detailed steps

You've probably heard of the global Toyota recall campaign but have no idea whether it affects your Toyota machine. With this guide, you can easily know if your Toyota has a recall. Before anything, ensure that you have your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) handy. You can find the VIN printed on the vehicle's insurance or registration card, on the lower corner of the windshield at the driver's side, or on the banner at the driver's door jamb. To check whether your vehicle has a recall:

  1. Log in to the Toyota USA website.
  2. Navigate to the bottom of the home screen where you should see various helpful links towards the right of the page
  3. Click on Safety Recalls & Service Campaigns, and you'll be redirected to the recall page.
  4. Scroll towards the bottom of the screen to the spaces provided
  5. Key in your license plate number and choose the state it was issued in. Alternatively, input your 17-digit VIN (without the state)
  6. Click on SUBMIT. You should now be able to see whether your vehicle has a recall.

The second way of checking recalls is via the NHTSA's web page. All you have to do is;

  1. Launch the NTSA website and navigate to the recall page
  2. Enter your VIN
  3. There are two outcomes you can expect; nothing to show up or open recalls. If it's the former, you're good to go. For the latter, you should call your dealer to schedule a service appointment.

Toyota allows its consumers to seek further clarification and assistance from the customer experience center. Here's how you can reach out to the service reps:

  1. Phone call

To get more information on Toyota vehicle recalls, clients can call the customer service team using the toll-free line. You should have your VIN information handy before the call to enable the agents to serve you faster. After submitting your recall issue, a staff member will assist you in checking whether your Toyota machine has a recall. You can also take advantage of the phone conversation to address any underlying issue you may have, and you can rest with the assurance that you'll get the help you need.

  1. Online help desk

With Toyota's online help desk platform, clients can reach company representatives and communicate with them via chat. Here, you can dig through the multiple help topics and select the one that relates to your Toyota recalls survey. A staff member will reach out and assist you with your problem.
