Ditto on the DOT call being a scam. It takes the National Highway Traffic Safety Admin (NHTSA) forever to open an investigation for automotive related complaints, and how did they get ahold of your number? Plus, a government employee calling you after normal work hours (last night)? Sounds suspect...

You can do a search on the DOT database for defects/recalls:

Keep a written log on who/when/what you have had communications with.

Good luck on this matter.
