Ford Recall Lookup by VIN
Ford holds the record for the largest recall by a manufacturer in the US auto industry. In 1980, Ford recalled 21 million vehicles from 10 model years for a problem that caused some vehicles to slip from park to reverse.
Based on a study conducted by iSeeCars.com, an automotive data and research company, Ford has a recall rate of 1,139 per 1,000 vehicles. The researchers used National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) data from January 1985 to September 2016 to calculate recall rates and other metrics. Recall rates are calculated by dividing the total number of vehicles affected by a recall by the number of new vehicles sold during the same period.
