Nissan, Carfax team up to help used-car buyers identify open recalls


Nissan is being pretty nice to used-car shoppers and has decided to provide them with improved access to information on open safety and emissions recalls. The Japanese automaker has teamed up with Carfax to share information regarding safety and emissions recalls for Nissan and Infiniti branded vehicles.

“By providing vehicle identification numbers (VINs) with open recalls to Carfax, NNA is working to ensure that customers can access this information through a convenient third-party database,” Nissan said. “Updated VINs will be provided to Carfax on a weekly basis and will enhance recall campaign awareness and encourage campaign repair completion.”

“We strive to have recall campaign work completed in a timely fashion,” said John Spoon, vice president, Parts and Service, NNA. “By working with Carfax we are making it easier for customers to determine if a vehicle has an open campaign and encouraging campaign service completion.”

We bet Ray LaHood is pretty proud of Nissan these days.
