  • All the cars that have been recalled in April and why
  • Find out which models are affected and how many
  • Make sure the car you buy has had recall work done

When you are considering buying a used car it is important you are fully aware of any potential problems. Vehicle records agency VOSA regularly issues recalls for models where issues have been reported.
