Peugeot: 21 recalls involving 12 models in 2017
peugeot recalls

Peugeot announced 21 recalls affecting 12 models according to the Rapex database. The 3008 was the most recalled, followed by Expert and Traveller vans. The oldest recalled car was the Peugeot 4008 from 2011.

  •  


As with the sister brand Citroën, the French carmaker’s recalls were firstly dominated by Expert and Traveller vans. They are assembled on the same production line using the same parts and so the defects are the same as well. The recall 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 and insufficiently tightened joints in the airbag unit. In total, these vans were recalled five times in 2017.

Surprisingly, however, the vans were surpassed in the number of recalls by the 3008 model, which won the European Car of the Year award in March 2017 in Geneva. Six recalls in just one year could indicate that the quality of production isn’t the main priority criterion for the jury.

The four recalls affected 208 and 508 models. Among the most common defects found are problems with starters, gearbox actuators and incorrectly tightened bolts on the axles. The relevant production years are shown in the link under each model.
