skoda recalls

Skoda-Auto issued three recalls affecting four of its models in 2017, according to the Rapex database. The Rapid, Yeti, Otavia and Superb models were recalled with the oldest being the 2008 Škoda Octavia.

  •  


The 2017 recalls were kicked off by Skoda in April when it recalled Superbs made in August 2016 due to problems with misfunctioning seatbelt pretensioners.

In July, the Rapid and the Yeti models appeared in the Rapex system yet again because of pretensioners which unlike in the Superb, could activate instead, but may explode and injure the crew.

The second July recall was announced due to ABS/ESP issues which at that time kept the VW Group’s other models busy which were similar to the 2008-2009 Octavia. The relevant production years are shown in the link under each model.
