What does an open safety recall mean?

An auto recall is issued when an automaker or National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) determines that vehicle equipment like tires, airbags, etc. fails to meet minimum safety standards. Automakers need to fix the safety-related issues by repairing, replacing, offering a refund, or in few cases repurchasing the vehicle.

 A defect may be noticed in a group of vehicles of the same design or make, or items of equipment of the same type and manufacture and pose a danger to vehicle safety.

It is, therefore, necessary to do BMW recall check to ascertain that your BMW doesn’t have a safety open recall. Your safety and that of your loved ones are not to be joked with, therefore be smart enough to perform  BMW recall VIN check.

How to check for any BMW recall?

If your BMW vehicle is currently under recall, you should have been notified by your vehicle’s manufacturer. You haven’t received a notice? Don’t worry. To know if your vehicle is included in any recalls, you can look up recalls in a number of ways. 

- You can find a VIN sticker on the driver's side door jamb.
- You can find BMW VIN on the lower, right corner of your windshield.
- Sometimes, BMW VIN is stamped by strut tower on the passenger or driver’s side.
- BMW VIN can also be found behind the license plate on a sticker.
- If you could not find VIN in either of the above locations, you can find BMW VIN on the engine block under the hood. This is the best way of finding a VIN in case of doubts about tempering. Use a flashlight to locate the VIN on the engine block.
- You can also find VIN on your BMW’s title, registration, or insurance papers.
