Car buyers and owners can use a vehicle’s identification number to identify open or unrepaired safety recalls with a new search tool released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration starting today.

The recall search tool is available on NHTSA’s website. Consumers enter a VIN to find out whether the vehicle has any open, unrepaired recalls and whether the automaker has a fix available.

“This should be a one-stop shop for consumers,” Jim Schulte, NHTSA’s director of digital strategies, said on a conference call with reporters Tuesday. “If you have a recall that has not been repaired, this is how you find out.”

The introduction of the search tool comes as automakers, led by General Motors, recall a record number of light vehicles in the United States.
