Why Safety Recalls Are Important: Automakers, including Toyota, want people who drive their cars, trucks, and SUVs to be safe. As manufacturing defects or design corrections are identified, both the government and automakers will issue recalls to replace or repair parts, often free of charge to consumers. Recalls can affect safety systems such as airbags, seatbelts and other passenger restraints, engines, transmissions, ignition and electrical systems, suspension systems, brakes, and even small parts such as brackets and bolts. Ensuring that open recalls are identified and fixed helps ensure the safety of drivers, their passengers, and even the occupants of other vehicles on the road.

Also, when you sign up for free recall alerts from CARFAX, you'll know if your Toyota vehicle has a recall that hasn't been fixed. You'll also get alerts should any future recalls happen.

According to a 2016 CARFAX study, there are more than 30 million Toyota vehicles on American roads today. Current CARFAX data estimates that most Toyotas driven today have had 2 or more owners on average.
