Citroën, Hyundai, Porsche… 17 cars on which the bonnet may open while driving

Opening the bonnet while driving is definitely one of the things we wouldn’t like to experience behind the wheel. You can find many videos on youtube where the drivers have shared this unhappiness.

The locking mechanism of the engine compartment is also occasionally the subject of a manufacturer´s recall through the Rapex system. This was the case with the cars listed below. If you own any of the mentioned cars, you should have the bonnet lock checked as soon as possible.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
