How to stay up to date on vehicle recall notices

The recall of Takata airbags is the most infamous for a good reason.

There have been 20 deaths, countless injuries and a potential ticking time bomb aimed at millions of drivers chests. It's scary.

But other little-known recalls with potentially dangerous issues are released more often than you think.

How about the one involving certain 2004 to 2007 Jeep Liberty models.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents say the rear suspension control arm can break from corrosion "causing a loss of vehicle control." Fixes are supposed to start June 20.

Some 2018 Volkswagen Tiguans are also being recalled for the potential loss of control. This one is due to "incorrect welding," and part of the rear shock absorber could just detach.

Repair is not available for this one yet. But you can check your VIN on Safercar.gov to see if and when your car will get the fix.

Even if your car isn't involved in these recalls it's a good idea to check every six months because new problems are added more often than you think.
