In February 2019, 31 recalls were issued via the EU Rapex system concerning 44 models from 17 automakers. Mercedes-Benz announced seven recalls, while Alfa Romeo and Audi had three each and Bentley, Dodge, Land Rover, and Porsche two each. At least one recall was reported by Cadillac, Citroën, Jaguar, Jeep, Opel, Peugeot, Seat, Skoda, Volvo, and Volkswagen.
