How to access if a used Jetta SE 5cyl has had any recalls that have been repaired and closed and fair purchase cost for used wigglytush Sep 09, 2016

I know the sites to find out if there are recalls open on the used 2011 VW. Yet if the report states 0 open recalls this can also indicate they had a recall on the car and it was repaired. Car fax nor the NHTSA include this.....I am concerned about the recalls and when or if any were done in the past. I may purchase this car for my son whom is a college student first time car owner. I want the experience to be positiveCar seems to be in great condition but includes a vague description of a rear collision with 0$ damage. Not sure if the car was rear ended or if the car hit another in the rear. Other than that it has 44,500 miles for 11595.00 purchase cost. Leather interior and no wear visible externally or within. Is this to good to be true?

  • I'm assuming the NHTSA resource you checked was here: https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/ ? I was under the impression that site showed repaired recalls, even if closed. Is that not the case?
