In spite of the popularity and reliability of the brand, buying a used Volkswagen without being fully aware of its history is not a very smart choice. When it comes to car production, it’s easy and absolutely normal to manufacture some cars with defects. It is important for the manufacturer to recall the cars with the defect and repair them.
But as we know from clear data, about every fourth recalled vehicle in the US don’t get a proper repair.
Some vehicles, for example, don’t benefit of a free recall because they got an accident before the recall date. For that reason, some reckless drivers or dealers don’t perform a full repair on the vehicle and just hope that the damage was not so wrong, after all.
We wouldn’t have cars with exploding engines, freezing accelerators and faulty steering parts on our roads if everyone took the issue more seriously. But, unfortunately, that’s the situation.
In order to avoid scams or bad deals with simply careless sellers, it is necessary to perform a Volkswagen recall check on the car that you are evaluating. And for this purpose, you need just the vehicle’s VIN, a number of 17 characters that identifies any vehicle in the US market (if the number is shorter or longer, the car wasn’t originally made for US market).
This number is a kind of fingerprint of the vehicle and can provide you with all the necessary information about the car, like for example, standard car specs and equipment, mileage report, original body color.
