Everyone knows about the Australian VIN checker (https://checkout.cupraofficial.com.au/o ... ns-recalls), but there is an independent Belgian VIN checker site which IMO has better information about each item and is more up to date:

https://www.dieteren.be/en/recall

The Australian one is still showing the Goodyear tyre recall for my car (which never had Goodyear tyres), and which was checked as "done" when I last took my Born to the dealer for some minor body repair work. The Belgian one isn't showing this. It is still showing the 3.4.1 software update though, even though I have done that and the car seemed to phone home to let the system know it had been done, but I don't know how often this checker is updated.

And sure enough, the VIN checker above no longer shows me the 3.4.1 Software Update (it now says there are no recalls for my car), so it's much more update to date than the Australian one.
