Easy way to tell if my car has outstanding recalls?

Post by davoxx »

Is there an easy way to tell if my car vin: VF7**************[VIN obfuscated, can be read by forum staff], has any outstanding recall issues?
I have the wiper issue with the driver side, which might have been covered in a recall.

There's a government site but I'm not sure how deeply it goes into the recalls other than 'safety' recalls

Any dealer service department will tell you if there is any outstanding recalls & what they are if you call them with the Reg or VIN.

To save you time, the driver's side windscreen motor recall was only for C5 vehicles with VINs in the range of the last 8 letters / numbers starting from 9L518753 and ending 9L541864, so you are much later and the issue was fixed for cars outside this range.
