Volkswagen – VIN Check for Recalls


VIN Check for Volkswagen Recalls

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

With one in ten unrepaired recalled vehicles on the UK’s roads, safety must be priority for customers. Manufacturers offer an unlimited time for those repairs, meaning that second or third Volkswagen owners can still get a recalled vehicle fixed at no charge. Let’s check on the condition of your car.

If you not sure there’s an active recall for your car, you should make contact with a Volkswagen dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer.

* You can copy the sample request email text below.

Hello,

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]


Get an instant safety recall check

VIN Check for Recalls by sending an email to an authorized dealer is doing by yourself and is therefore absolutely free of charge.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, 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 the vehicle registration number.
