Citroën: 21 recalls involving 15 models in 2017
citroen recalls

Citroën announced 21 recalls affecting 15 models according to the Rapex database. The most recalled were Jumpy/Spacetourer models, while the oldest car recalled was Citroën DS4 produced in 2009.

  •  


The French carmaker is actually in dire straits because of its Jumpy and Spacetourer vans. At least six issues had to be fixed in the March recall alone. It was announced due to brake assist system, missing body seals, fuel tank neck seals, the risk of a wheel falling off, poorly screwed shock absorbers or insufficiently tightened joints in airbag unit. In total, these were recalled six times in 2017.

Four recalls affected the C4 Cactus. In April, the C4 Cactuses were recalled along with other models due to problems with the gear actuator and in May due to a troublesome overheating starter relay. The issues could lead to a misfunctioning starter or even a fire in the models C-Elysée, C3 and C4 Picasso. In July, Citroën recalled again due the problem with inappropriate starter cable wiring in the DS4, C5 and DS5 models.

Other failures include the risk of an opening bonnet while driving (C4, C4 Cactus, DS4) or poorly tightened axle bolts (DS3, DS5). The relevant production years are shown in the link under each model.
