Automotive online resource websites, such as Edmunds and Autoblog, provide information about Volkswagen's previous and recent safety recalls, including links to recall orders and year and model of the cars affected. Car owners may also check their cars' recall history through Volkswagen's official website.
Safercar.gov is another website where car owners can check about Volkswagen recalls. Similar to the Volkswagen website, the site requires the complete vehicle identification number of the vehicle to determine if that particular car is a part of a safety recall order within the past 15 years. A recall lookup by VIN also allows the current owners to find out if the recalled vehicle still requires a repair.
