When enough of these defects occur in a specific vehicle model, the NHTSA will ask the automakers to issue a recall on the vehicle so the defect can be fixed. Find if the vehicle has had any manufacturer recalls. If there are defects, learn about their impact on safety and how to fix these issues. Simply, enter a VIN or license plate number in our recall lookup tool to check recalls if any.

Oops! No result from Volkswagen VIN Decoder

Be sure to enter each digit correctly and bear in mind that VINs don’t contain O’ or ‘I’ letters. So double-check that these letters have not been substituted with the numbers ‘0’ or ‘1’.

Typically, vehicles that are manufactured before 1981 have shorter VINs than 17 digits and are likely not to give results from a VIN lookup. To obtain an antique or classic vehicle history, simply contact our staff via live chat or email for assistance.
