Keep upto date with recalls for all vehicles.....

Don't want to clutter up the forum with links, so I'll add it here, this one is to check the price of your road tax, also tells you the date when tax is due and date of production, I use this when looking up cars for sale, see how much the tax is and when it's due :s_yes

It's true that certain manufactures attempt to keep their recalls hushed, sending out 'component check' letters to owners rather than making things more transparent. Friend of mine had a BMW about three years ago, it had more recalls than a gamekeepers dog.......

TOKYO (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp <7203.T> said on Thursday it is conducting a global recall of 2.87 million vehicles due to the possibility that their seatbelts could be damaged by a metal seat frame part in the event of a crash.

In an email, the world's biggest-selling automaker said that the global recall involved its RAV4 SUV model produced between July 2005 and August 2014 and sold worldwide, and its Vanguard SUV model produced between October 2005 and January 2016 and sold in Japan.

The recall includes 1.3 million vehicles in North America announced earlier in the day by Toyota's U.S. unit, along with around 625,000 vehicles in Europe, 434,000 vehicles in China, 177,000 in Japan and 307,000 in other regions.

The automaker said it would add resin covers to the metal seat cushion frames on all affected vehicles to prevent any metal pieces from cutting the seatbelt in the event of a crash, after it had received two reports in which rear seatbelts separated following crashes.

Well I've had a recall letter this morning from DVLA re. driver's side airbag inflator.

A global recall and demand for new parts is high so I will only be notified when the work can be done when the local dealer has the part.

I suspect you know all this anyhow but in case you don't there it is.
