Carfax Report: 57 Million Vehicles on U.S. Roads Have Open Recalls

March 23, 2018—According to Carfax, more than 57 million recalled vehicles—greater than one out of every five vehicles in the U.S.—are currently in use across the country. The company's annual research also suggests that people living in the southern parts of the country are most likely to have cars with open recalls.

Southern states like Texas, Mississippi, Louisiana, New Mexico, Alabama and Arizona are some of the top states with the highest open recall percentages. California, Texas, Florida, Pennsylvania and New York have the most vehicles with open recalls.

The new data also suggests that work-life balance may be a factor for some vehicle owners not knowing about a recall or getting it fixed. Light trucks and SUVs—vehicles often used by businesses and busy families—are the ones most likely to have unfixed recalls.
