A vehicle safety recall is usually initiated by a car manufacturer for defects that pose a risk to vehicle safety. This defect may have been discovered in several vehicles of the same design or manufacture or in components of the same type and manufacture. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), an agency within the US Department of Transportation, oversees the safety recalls.
A VIN or vehicle identification number is a 17-digit alphanumeric code that serves to identify your Acura vehicle as a unique unit. No two vehicles have the same VIN. It is the key to all data about a vehicle.
