NHTSA safety website problems

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website aims to keep vehicle owners informed. The NHTSA has a vehicle recalls search that the public can use, a crash test database, research reports, safety snapshots, and offers vehicle owners the ability to file complaints.

When the NHTSA safety website goes down, or runs into problems, then you can count on a lot of upset across the United States when vital information is needed. In fact, we have seen the NHTSA vehicle recall search go down during massive announcements that included the airbag recall.

If you find any element of the nhtsa.gov, or odi.nhtsa.dot.gov website go down with common website errors, then leave a status report below. You can also leave other vehicle problems as well related to safety, which the Down Today community might find useful.

    Do you have to get a trailer approved before towing, my license says i can pull a trailer. Only want one for my camper van to put Vespa scooter and other camping gear in there. This will then free up the VW T5 camper whilst on the move and for stop breaks.

    The NHTSA site has no problems, but when you click “search for recalls” the link opens a page that states “failed to open”. In Safari, it has an error message “can’t connect to server”.

    The vehicle recall search is not working on October 22. It stopped yesterday, although you can phone 202-366-9550 in relation to the airbag recall.
