Two Alfa Romeo recalls in 2018 – VIN lookup

In 2018, Alfa Romeo announced 2 recalls that affected 3 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 first recall in 2018 was announced by Alfa Romeo in March and it covered three of its models. The Giulietta, Giulia and Stelvio manufactured in November and December 2017 may get the brake and clutch fluid which contain a mineral oil and may as a consequence damage certain components of the braking system and the clutch.

For Stelvio, another recall was announced in August. Electro-installation of cars manufactured between December 2016 and May 2018 can be penetrated by water and may result in the failure of various electrical functions.

* 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 an Alfa Romeo 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 Alfa Romeo authorized service regularly, occasionally or never before.
