“Your customer will likely view your effort as a value-added service,” the statement says.

Following is the statement in its entirety:

In the interest of customer safety and increased customer convenience, American Honda Motor Co, Inc. urges all collision shops, independent repair shops, used car dealers, or any non-Honda or non-Acura auto repair facility to check for any applicable safety recalls each time a Honda or Acura vehicle is serviced, repaired or inventoried.

Although American Honda notifies the current registered owner (as identified through state vehicle registration data) each time it conducts a safety recall, not all owners receive such notices (due to change of address or ownership or lack of current registration) and  even when notices are received not all owners respond to such notices. If all sales and service facilities were to check for applicable safety recalls for all vehicles that come into their facilities together, we can ensure that necessary safety repairs are made to all vehicles owned by our joint customers.
