GM allows Chevy owners to search for recalls by VIN at recalls.gm.com. The user enters a specific VIN associated with a Chevy vehicle to determine if a recall affects the vehicle. GM also mails recall information to owners and posts recall details on the News section of the website.
Searching by VIN gives Chevy owners the most detailed and up to date information about potential recalls. A recall doesn't always apply to every Chevy model of a particular year. Two Chevy vehicles of the same model year are sometimes manufactured at different times or in different facilities. GM determines which specific vehicles fall under the recall based on VIN. Those VINs are then added to the recall database so owners can easily find the information.
