Rental Car Companies are prohibited
from renting, leasing or selling vehicles with
open safety recalls as required by the
FAST Act – Safe Rental Car Law.
Managing safety recalls has become Significantly more difficult
In addition to the enactment of the Safe Rental Car Law, the increase in the number of safety recalls issued since 2014, affecting more than 150 million vehicles, has dramatically increased the cost and effort now required to effectively manage recalls.
Compliance with the Safe Rental Car Law means that smart rental car companies should monitor every vehicle, every day. Given the errors and out of sync data from the manufacturers and NHTSA, it is increasingly difficult to know the accurate safety recall status on every vehicle in your fleet every day, with any degree of confidence.

Know the recall status up to two months before official recall notification from
Official OEM recall notification can be delayed by up to two months after NHTSA and/or the OEMs have published safety recall information. With AutoAp, knowing the recall status on your fleet as early as possible gives you options prior to forced-grounding requirements of the FAST Act, and can get you ahead of the line for recall repairs.
Know the recall status on vehicles that are actually in your fleet, not what the manufacturers think are in your fleet.
Rental companies estimate that as much as 70% of the official recall notices they receive from manufacturers are for vehicles that are not in their fleet, causing wasted effort to organize and reconcile. AutoAp only processes vehicles that you tell us are in your fleet.
