If there was a perfect technology to inform car owners about potential problems with their vehicles, it would be RSS. The wonderful Real Simple Syndication that keeps us up-to-date on our favorite blogs has caused a lightbulb to illuminate above a few heads at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NTHSA). "Why, with this simple tool, people could sign up to be notified quickly when we issue any alerts or recalls," the agency said in a moment of current-technology clarity (we're paraphrasing.) Once you go to NHTSA's website and sign up, you get a synopsis of the past week's activity, as well as the ability to track up to five different vehicles. The system also allows notification through email or RSS update on your PC, phone, or PDA whenever something pertaining to your vehicle is issued. Additionally, recalls on tires and child safety gear will also go out. Sure beats a hit or miss web search.
