2020: Opel recalls

Fourteen recalls for seven Opel models in 2020


In 2020, Opel announced fourteen recalls for seven models through the EU Rapex system.

Steering failure may occur with Opel Combo, and Corsa manufactured between September to December 2019. Three recalls due to a fuel or oil leak have been released by Opel for the Insignia. Fuel may also leak from the Crosslands’ engine high-pressure pump.

The new Zafira and Vivaro are based on Peugeot and Citroën vans, so it’s no wonder they share numerous recalls with them.

All the recalls sorted by models are listed in the tables below.



We’ve written about some problems in more detail in a separate article.
