  • FINALLY! The NHTSA offers email notification of car seat recalls

    I’ve complained before about not being able to sign up for email notification of car seat recalls, and having to depend on traditional news sources and consumer advocacy groups for the information. Well, the NHTSA must have gotten a fair number of requests/complaints, because they now offer email notification. Yay!

    Go to to sign up. You’ll see that you can also sign up for email notification of tire recalls, in case you’re interested in that as well.
