BMW – Free 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.

If you not sure there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a BMW dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorized to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer. You can copy the sample request email text below.


Request example

I am writing a request to verify the VIN code of my vehicle (see below). I would like to know if any Recall or Technical Service Bulletin has been issued in the past.

[Your Name]

[Vehicle 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. It is made up of a unique combination of 17 letters and numbers.
