Question before making a purchase

400 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  Remedy
Today, I went to test out an R32 with 19k on it. However, the vehicle had a few blemishes on it. Mostly the wheels and valance.
I understand I can get a carfax on it. But, is there a way to get a list of recall work performed on it?
I know there was a gas tank recall, and an apparent DSG issue(?). But, other than that, would the dealer provide the recall list of work performed or no?
The reason I asked, is because when I bought my GTI (IV), they were very sneaky in trying to pass the buck to me to foot the bill for work that should been recalled in the first place.

even if the dealer would comply with your request, you are already wary of them (assuming it's the same dealer).
can you call VWoA and find out more regarding your VIN? i actually don't know what records they may have, but i do know VINs are tracked via a national database. what's on the database, however, i can't say.
somebody?

Well, this is a different dealer than where I purchased my GTI previously. But, their behavior seems to be very sketchy across all VW dealers in my experience.
