Default Is There A Recall on Your Car?

I know that links like this have been posted in the past, but ran into this while searching for something for my SIL last night, so thought I'd post it for those that want to know.

Note that this site does not post the whole recall notice and also only has the NHTSA reference number for each recall, not the actual company recall number. Both of these are typical. If you want to know more about a specific recall, contact your nearest factory dealer.

BTW, this particular page link happens to be for the 1997 Bonneville SE. I wonder why?....hmmmmm...

Auto Recall Date: 20040224
Vehicle Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINEELIVERY
Estimated Vehicles Affected: 910873
1998 PONTIAC BONNEVILLE Defect Summary:
ON CERTAIN PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH 3800 V6 (L36) ENGINES AND CERTAIN DELPHI FUEL PRESSURE REGULATORS, THE REGULATORS HAVE A MUCH HIGHER THAN USUAL RATE OF FUEL LEAKS.

THE BACKFIRE CAN RUPTURE THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. THE RUPTURE OF THE INTAKE MANIFOLD CAN DISPLACE A FUEL LINE, PULLING AN INJECTOR OUT OF PLACE, AND CAUSING A FUEL LEAK AND POSSIBLE FIRE.
Remedy:
DEALERS WILL INSTALL NEW FUEL PRESSURE REGULATORS WITH IMPROVED DIAPHRAGMS. THE RECALL WILL BE CONDUCTED IN PHASED MAILINGS. PHASE 1 BEGAN ON JUNE 30, 2004, AND PHASE 2 BEGAN ON SEPTEMBER 30, 2004. OWNERS SHOULD CONTACT BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, OLDSMOBILE AT 1-800-630-6537, OR PONTIAC AT 1-800-620-7668.

Ya, any dealer can tell you if it'* been done. Tell them your VIN over the phone and they can look it up for you.

That'* true!

If there is ever any question regarding your car, you can call your dealer with your VIN number or take it in and they can tell you what recalls exist for your car and also if that item was fixed on your particular vehicle.
