BMW – VIN Check for Recalls

VIN Check for BMW Recalls

Four out of five people who are interested in a used car don’t ask if the car they are about to buy has been subject to a manufacturer recall.

With four in ten unrepaired recalled vehicles on the UK’s roads, safety must be a priority for every used car buyer. Manufacturers usually offer an unlimited time for those repairs, meaning that second or third BMW owner can still get a recalled vehicle fixed at no charge. Let’s check on if the car you are interested in (or that you have already purchased) has all the recalls resolved.

With the UK-registered cars you can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.

If you like to know more about a specific BMW used car (mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, repairs) then we suggest going to HPI-Check service – see below.
