In April 2019, 29 recalls were issued via the EU Rapex system concerning 50 models from 17 automakers. Citroën announced five recalls, while Peugeot four. Volkswagen and Mercedes-Benz had three each and Seat two. At least one recall was reported by Audi, Dacia, DS, Ferrari, Ford, Hyundai, Lamborghini, Land Rover, Nissan, Renault, Subaru and Volvo.

Eight recalls were related to some suspension components, the failure of which could cause the vehicle to become uncontrollable (Audi, Citroën, Ford, Peugeot, Volkswagen). Most models in one action have recalled Ferrari (airbag issue) and Subaru (valve springs). Four times is a risk of fire reported in the extreme cases (Citroën C3 Aircross, Nissan Qashqai, Peugeot 5008, Renault Megane, Kadjar, Scenic).

We have summed up all the EU Rapex recalls in our regular weekly reports. A comprehensive table is available at the end of this article.

Wheel breakages threaten VW, Audi, Ford and Peugeot (week 15/19)

Peugeot and Citroën Vans could be really dangerous (week 14/19)

A week ago, we wrote that the trio of Peugeot, Citroën and Toyota Vans are among the most recalled vehicles ever. Peugeot had two recalls for the Expert and Traveler models last week and two more are added to the EU Rapex Rapid Alert System list this week. The same defects were found with the sister models Citroën Jumpy (Dispatch in the UK) and Spacetourer, for which five recalls were announced this week… Read more
