In an effort to increase awareness of and compliance with open auto recalls, FCA (Fiat Chrysler Automobiles) has partnered with the National Safety Council (NSC) in the "Check to Protect" campaign. It's an effort encouraging car owners to check for and quickly address open recalls on their vehicles.

Traffic fatalities have been up significantly over the past couple of years (8 percent in 2015 and nearly another 8 percent in the first nine months of 2016), making the issue of unresolved recalls an even more urgent concern. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), more than 53 million (or more than one in four) vehicles on the road today have an unresolved recall. Older, used vehicles are more likely to have an open recall. According to the Alliance of Automobile Manufacturers and Global Automakers, recall-compliance-completion rates are just 44 percent for cars five years old or older. For newer vehicles, it's more than 80 percent.

In a 2016 FCA-sponsored survey, more than 70 percent of respondents said they'd be very likely to check if their vehicle had an outstanding recall if they knew of a tool that helped them to do so. Check to Protect is that tool — simply go to checktoprotect.org. There, you'll find instructions on how to locate your vehicle's unique 17-character VIN. Once you find it, all you need to do is enter it. It's that quick and easy.

If your vehicle has an outstanding, unresolved recall, you can get it fixed for free at any franchised dealer selling your car model.
