NHTSA is republishing the Privacy Act system of records notice (SORN) for the Consumer Assistance to Recycle and Save program (CARS program) database system replacing the previously published SORN of July 27, 2009 in order to: (1) Expand the routine uses of records maintained in the system to include sharing complaint records with State Attorneys General and the National Association of Attorneys General (NAAG), for purposes of investigating and prosecuting criminal violations, including fraud associated with the CARS program, and (2) update the system location, storage and retrievability sections of the SORN to reflect the use of word-searchable electronic files (i.e., Excel spreadsheets) to store complaint information, including that to be shared with the State Attorneys General and NAAG. These changes are more thoroughly detailed below and in the accompanying updated Privacy Impact Assessment (PIA) that may be found on the DOT Privacy Web site at
