In addition to the enactment of the Safe Rental Car Law, the increase in the number of safety recalls issued since 2000, affecting more than 150 million vehicles, has dramatically increased the cost and effort now required to effectively manage recalls.
Compliance with the Safe Rental Car Law means that smart rental car companies should monitor every vehicle, every day. Given the errors and out of sync data from the manufacturers and NHTSA, it is increasingly difficult to know the accurate safety recall status on every vehicle in your fleet every day, with any degree of confidence.
NHTSA's official year, make, and model safety recall database contains errors and publication timing delays in assigning recalls to the correct model years and models, and NHTSA's VIN-specific recall lookup site (SaferCar.gov) can fail to report open recalls.
OEMs' public recall sites and their dealer communications portals can be out of sync and report different VIN-specific recall status as well as having issues with recall status accuracy.
