    You could tell the NHTSA not only do not care about helping you but actually sound like they do not want your car repair. Clearly, when you talk to them, you feel like they are on the car maker side. Very frustrating, and it leaves you on your own, practically.

    Seeing as this information must be freely available to the government via the DMV, I can only blame the government for failing to notify the new owners of recalled un-repaired cars

    @Andy, it's indeed a case of the left hand not knowing what the right hand is doing. Remember that recalls are set at the federal level, while DMV operations are at the state level. Even if the NHTSA embraced your suggestions, the states would push back until they received additional funding to support such a plan.
