Motor Vehicle Safety Recalls Database - Canada

Please note that not all vehicles in a certain make, model and model year group are subject to a given safety related recall. This is because the problem may have been corrected in production before the vehicle in question was manufactured, or, the vehicle may have a different engine / powertrain configuration / optional equipment, or it may have been manufactured in a different plant, as examples. Not all vehicles within a specified Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) range may be involved. Thus the description of the problem detailed on the Motor Vehicle Safety Recalls Database generally starts with the words: “On certain vehicles…”. It is recommended that owners contact the manufacturer or their local dealer to verify whether or not their vehicle is involved in a specific recall.
