Carfax offers a free service that will track any open recalls on the specific vehicle and send alerts if the new ones are issued.


“Many people in Florida still are unnecessarily risking their lives by not staying informed or taking action when their vehicle is under a recall,” said Larry Gamache, communications director at Carfax.
