Default Canadian recall search by vin?

Searching the vw.ca website comes up with nadda, google, nothing, transport canadas page with links to automative manufacturers recall links shows vw as n/a.

Does anyone know where I can search for recalls based on my vin, and see if anything is due?

Not by VIN but car type (go to the bottom)
https://www.auto123.com/en/recalls/details/volkswagen/

Says "The list below shows all known recalls from Transport Canada's database."

Default Transport Canada does not show all recalls

The Transport Canada website https://www.auto123.com/en/recalls/details/volkswagen/ does not show all recalls. I just checked for my 2015 Golf Wagon TDI and it says their are no recalls, but there is an open recall: "Compliance Recall 37L5 / Shift Lever Micro Switch" which I found by googling the warning message reported on car dashboard. Dealers got a mandatory stop sale order from VW in 2018. Interestingly I have not yet received a mail notification from VW on this recall. Perhaps they don't tell owners until there are enough parts to fix. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/201...8V464-9988.pdf. https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/201...8V464-0189.pdf

Default NHTSA website accepts Canadian VIN's

NHTSA website accepts Canadian VIN's. Don't know if it includes all Canadian recalls. https://www.nhtsa.gov/recalls

This recall is currently active - I've had a couple friends get them done on their cars. The ONLY way to know for sure if your car has been recalled is to contact your local dealer with your serial number
