What is a Tesla VIN recall check?
At Vehicle.report, you can search for recalls issued for any Tesla vehicle. Manufacturers like Tesla are among the top sources of information for our comprehensive database of vehicle data. Using the vehicle identification number, you can verify if Tesla issued a recall for any vehicle.
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 Tesla vehicle as a unique unit. No two vehicles have the same VIN. It is the key to all data about a vehicle.
How do I find previous recalls on my Tesla car?
Based on NHTSA data from a 31-year study, Tesla had one of the lowest recall rates in the auto industry: 936 vehicles recalled per 1,000 units sold. However, 100 percent of all recalls were reported to have consequences that may lead to a crash, accident, fire, injury, or death.
