dodge-recall-vin-lookup

In 2018, Dodge announced four recalls that affected four of its models, according to the Rapex notifications. How to check your VIN for free to see if any of them is also relevant to your car?

  •  

The June 2018 recall due to the oil-cooler line which could be defective concerned the Dodge Challenger and Charger with production dates between February to May 2017. With the Avenger models made from 2011 to 2013, there is an internal error in the restraint system controller.

Two recalls at the end of 2018 concerned the Dodge´s RAM pick-up. In September, Rapex warns of a possible water pump failure with vehicles produced between 2012 and 2017, while in October the RAMs made between the years 2008 to 2012 were recalled due to the fuel tank mounting possibly breaking.

* We’ve divided all the recalls according to the models into the table at the end of the article. 



How can you check the recalls by VIN?

Even if you do not find your car in the table below, it does not mean it was not the subject of a recall sometime in the past. The best way to verify whether a particular car is affected with some recall is to contact a Dodge Authorized Service and ask for the VIN to be checked not only for recalls but also for various service bulletins.

It will only cost you time because such information is provided for free. Free of charge are also all the repairs that are related to the recall. It does not matter whether you are the first, second or even third owner. It does not even matter whether you have been to Dodge authorized service regularly, occasionally or never before.

If you wish to get fully comprehensive VIN lookup, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.


What is a VIN code?
The VIN code is a unique identification number that is embossed on the body of the car and shown on the ID card. In some cars, it can also be found in the frame under the windscreen. It is made up of a unique combination of 17 letters and numbers.
