A new report from Carfax shows nearly 650,000 vehicles on Iowa's roads have unfixed safety recalls.

They say that's a 24 percent increase from 2016.

In all, Carfax says 63 million cars nationally are affected by recalls--a 34 percent jump from last year.

They say family-oriented vehicles, like minivans and SUV's, are most affected.

Common recalls include everything from exploding airbags to defective seatbelts.  

According to that report, 23 percent of the cars on Waterloo's roads are affected, while 22 percent in Cedar Rapids and 19 percent in both Dubuque and Iowa City are affected.
