Dozens of recalls are issued annually, affecting millions of vehicles. If you receive notification that your vehicle has been affected by a Volkswagen recall, take prompt and straightforward action to keep you and your passengers safe. North Penn Volkswagen outlines what you need to know if your vehicle has been recalled.

How Do I Know If My Vehicle Has Been Recalled?

While every modern Volkswagen vehicle is the product of thousands of hours of research and design from one of the world’s leading teams of automotive engineers, a problem can be discovered affecting one or more components under rare circumstances. When this happens, a notification is sent by the manufacturer or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to the address where every affected vehicle is registered. If, for some reason, you’re unsure if your car may have been recalled, you can always search on the NHTSA website; all you need to do is enter your vehicle identification number (VIN).

What Do I Do Now?

You may read the recall notice, decide the issue is minor, and put off repairs (or forget about them altogether). We don’t suggest doing this. Instead, call our service department at North Penn Volkswagen; our service technicians will work around your schedule to repair or replace the affected part at no cost so you can return to driving safely.
