Safety recalls

Members who purchase new vans from dealers other than Hymer UK or Brownhills have voiced concern that their vehicles may be “grey imports” and not notified of any safety recall that the vehicle manufacture may issue.  My investigation has indicated that any such vehicle that is subsequently serviced by a recognised Fiat or Mercedes dealership will pick up any safety recall issue.  I have also been informed that used vehicles and those that have had a number of owners are traced using the VIN via the DVLC issuing names and addresses.  There is a VOSA dedicated recall web site where such information is logged on a voluntary basis www.vosa.gov.uk/vosa/apps/recalls/default.asp.
