    Default Definitive recall list on vxr

    Hi guys. Does anyone know where I can get a list of all the recalls that happened on the vxr. Want to check with the dealer to make sure its been done.
    If not where do I stand in regards to them doing it?
    Are they entitled to refuse for any reason?

    Cheers

    My car although be it only a normal Vectra was recalled for the handbrake spring, shortly after I bought it, the previous owner obviously never bothered. Maybe when a car changes hands DVLA notify Vauxhall?

    Isn there a list of official recalls on DVLA or PArkers? I have seen one somewhere and I am not in the trade.

    DVLA only note 'serious' recalls (don't remember the exact words), mainly related to safety.

    The website is here:

    http://www.dft.gov.uk/vosa/apps/reca...lt.asp?tx=VOSA

    I've put in Vauxhall Vectra (from 2007) and it only mentions the handbrake. A full list would be held with a dealer or Vauxhall Customer Service - worth phoning a couple of dealers to see if someone is helpful, or you could try phoning Vauxhall Customer Service (or whatever it's called).

    Thanks right but i believe that the old header tanks were black too. The seems were spliting and could explode under pressure, i think i've seen somewhere as well that the position of the hoses were changed round too.

    Well the dealer said that when it goes through the workshop it should throw up any recalls and they will be sorted before the car gets picked up. We shall wait and see lol

    Yes the dealer should run a Vauxhall reworks list (I think that's what its called) to see if there are any outstanding recalls.

    Apparently the 1st and only owner looked after it immensely as its mint so im hoping its already been done. Il be speaking to the dealer before I pick it up to make sure it has either before or while its been with them. They are tight as #### so will try and get out of anything
