|Is my Citroen C6 subject to a Safety or other recall|
10th May 2012 - Citroën are pleased to announce the launch of a brand new and free service for customers
This allows you to view the outstanding recalls on your Citroen (you can add more than 1 car to the service).
Once you have registered with Citroën Recalls it will allow Citroën to contact you, the customer directly and on a quarterly basis notify you where relevant on any outstanding recalls, Safety or 'Quality'.

The key features and benefits of the website are as follows:
· Allows customers to register their vehicles and search for any known recalls
· Website registration is free
· Registration is valid for one year and customers will be reminded to renew their registration after this period
· One off searches are possible for customers not wishing to register
Please bear in mind that not all cars are affected by every recall.
It is model dependant and normally done by build date / chassis (VIN) number.
All recalls are not 'safety' based either and will not be important enough to be included on the VOSA database but are simply done by the manufacturer based upon the 'incident' prevalence reported by Dealers.
Below is a precis of the current 'Safety' recalls on the C6
If you are buying a C6 second hand you should check against this list and seek confirmation that the work has been carried out.
Please note: these are abridged details for information only.
You can search for any Vehicle Safety re-call by Manufacturer, date etc. here - Click Here -
This is the recall procedure provided by my local Citroen dealer.
Citroen add the details to the dealers Lexia system so all garages get notified of the recall and when a car is hooked up for servicing it auto flags that the re-call work is required.So if your not the original car purchaser, contact your dealer to see if the car is subject to any of the above recalls if your concerned and want the work done sooner, rather than later
Citroen also mail all the original owners giving notice of the recall
Any cars that have been sold on, then the subsequent owners will be notified via the DVLA records, but that could take some time.
