While there was no car recall announced by Rapex at the 20th week of 2018, we found two new in the 21st week. Toyota and Audi had each one.

Toyota Avanza is manufactured in Indonesia at the Daihatsu factory and is not very widespread in Europe. But some of them apparently appeared in Germany, where a problem with a inlet hose linking the fuel tank with the filler cap was reported. Premature ageing of the hose may lead to fuel leaking.

Audi A4 and A5 produced from October 2015 to October 2017 may have a problem with the decorative aluminium strips on the lower part of the front or rear door trims. These can be partly detached and their sharp edges can cause injury.

It’s surprising that German premium brands have such a trivial quality faults more often these days. Recently the BMW X3 was recalled due to poorly attached rear spoiler bolts. The same body part may also detach with Volkswagen Arteon, due to the incorrect adhesion of the bond. The superfluous insulation material in the lower area of the windscreen appeared with Mercedes GLS and GLE. Porsche 911 and Boxster also reported that the windscreen might not be correctly bonded to the bodywork and the windscreen could become detached in the event of an accident.
