Regardless of whether you need BMW recall service or simply need routine maintenance, you can trust the service experts at Rusnak BMW! Your vehicle will be up and running on the Los Angeles roads again in no time.

Step 1: Locate Your VIN

The first step to following up on a BMW recall is finding your VIN. Here’s where you’ll typically find your VIN on a BMW vehicle:

  • On the driver’s side of the dashboard — step outside your car and check behind the windshield.
  • On the driver’s side door pillar — this is where your door connects to the body of the vehicle.

Having trouble locating your BMW VIN? If you can’t find it in the above two places, you may be able to find it printed on the engine block under the hood of your vehicle. If you still are unable to find it, check your insurance and registration documents.

Step 2: Check for Recalls

Luckily, checking for a BMW recall is incredibly simple. All you need to do is visit the BMW website and enter your VIN. After entering your VIN, you’ll be able to view the recall status of your exact make and model. If your vehicle doesn’t have any listed recalls, you are cleared to keep driving the Westlake Village streets as you normally would. If your vehicle does in fact have a recall, you’ll want to schedule service at your earliest convenience to get the problem corrected.
