Not really a deal, just info. Should be on the forum or somewhere.

Heat added just for the pic.

It's worth checking / registering with the original manufacturers anyway. Sometimes a recall is recalled, and a few year ago there were loads of airbags recalled.
The site will tell you of them, but not if your car went for the recall, so you'd have to check anyway.

Asked my local Mercedes garage if my car was affected by the 'risk of fire' by dodgy high pressures fuel lines and they didn't have a clue

A good one for Fords is ETIS. You can enter your registration or VIN and it will tell you if there are any outstanding recalls or updates. etis.ford.com

Good post last time my make of car had a recall was 2012 so i,m happy lol

My Hyundai i800 doesn't even appear on the list. But if anyone on this site has one and hasn't had the rear heater pipes swapped for modified alloy ones then take it back to the dealer. Mine were swapped under warranty a year ago but have now been done again as Hyundai are aware there was an issue with the original design.
So different to Vauxhall who don't acknowledge issues with wiper pattern on Zafira A (a mod kit is available at huge cost) or rear door electrics on any model in the last 30 years. Recalls are only done if forced, not Just because they know there's an issue.

Yes some of the supposedly finest cars have the worst possible dealers {after buying your car that is}

Well, we have a recall letter from Nissan and we booked for an appointment in Romford dealership. On that very day, when my son had to drive the car up to this part of the world, we had a phone call, asking us if we would like to sell our car. I said no. Then we were told that WE DIDN'T NEED TO BOTHER to go fo the appointment as the parts were not there!

How nasty was that??? Can you hear me, Romford Nissan?

Unnecessary. Voted cold.

If there is a recall but never knew, how would someone go ahead and fix the problem ?

that's why you need to be aware of any recall

I guess with people religiously using the brand dealer, they are more likely to get told about the recall, maybe during a regular service

others (like myself) who now never use the brand dealer but prefer the local garage lads, would need to establish the recall notice themselves then arrange to get this repair done by the brand dealer

Generalised Anxiety Disorder much?

I own VW CC car but this DVLA recall site doesn't recognise it, so Govt can't tell if any recall come through. This car had the recall in relation to infamous dieselgate scandal! DVLA do recognise the car model when it comes to paying for road tax and MOT.

Isn't it these days that manufacturers use DVLA data to send recall notices in post to rightful owners? I certainly did get one last month for airbag recall on 52 plate Toyota.

anyone received the BMW airbag recall?

This tool is not comprehensive - if you're anxious to find out about a recall, contact a local dealer via email.

So if my car is listed what should i do? Contact the dealer and they do the work for free? Will they do it all at once if it has more then one job ? Is there any restrictions to this for example age of car in warranty etc ?

The site only lists vehicles if they’ve been recalled, The optional emissions fix isn't a safety issue so presumably wouldn't be an official recall. There have been reports of the fix causing safety problems, with some cars going into limp mode:- autocar.co.uk/car…ion

Good information to hav

Just ring any of your cars manufacturers dealers and ask the service department if there are ANY OUTSTANDING recalls for your vehucle.(they'll need your registration plate number or VIN number).They know which recalls have been done and whuch are/aren't applicable for your specific car.
If any are outstanding book it in....you don't pay for any recall work.
Your dealer will be up to date with any outstanding recalls whereas online sites including the GOV site MAY not especially if it's a recent recall or safety recall.

It is a lot more convenient to go to your car manufacturer's website and search by VIN, not loads of info to get questionable results.

Just contact the dealer and they’ll check from your car reg

It will be free although some dealers will try it on and ask for money.....best get in touch with the manufacturers helpline first,there's no age limit,I know of cars 10-15 years old being repaired...the dealers claim of the manufacturer for parts and labour....you would need to book the car in,if there were a couple of recalls on the car it could be more than one appointment.....most recalls are safety issues so having a full service history doesn't apply as most of these items would be non serviceable parts.

Mines that old would need the Time Team to look up mine.

Yeah but it's like saying, "check if your car is taxed or insured or MOTd on this government website for free!"

Great post

Well that's terrifying!!!

No Kia Venga

My qashqai has had recall repairs done and none of them are listed on this site. This site appears to be for non-voluntary recalled only.

We really running out of real deals. Aren't we?

Don't suppose you know the BMW one by any slim chance ?

There is a recall for my Bugatti veyron,apparently the diamonds are known to fall out of the encrusted ashtray,and are likely to cause embarrassment.

I will be straight down the dealership on Monday morning to demand it is rectified ASAP ! I mean I could end up cutting my finger on a loose gem.
