Cupra Formentor has its first recall due to the Front Assist system

The Seat subbrand’s first independent model already has its first recall. The Cupra Formentor must undergo additional configuration of some safety assistants.

The pedestrian and cyclist detection system, as well as the evasive manoeuvre assistant and turning assistant, are not activated on some Cupra Formentor crossovers. The Seat’s subsidiary spokesperson confirmed to the announcement of a recall for 2,165 cars, of which 1,245 are registered in Germany.

These are cars that rolled off the production line until 16 November 2020 inclusive. According to the spokesperson, the assistance systems’ activation takes about two hours in the authorized workshop. The recall is registered under the internal code “91BG“.

The assistants are part of the “Front Assist” emergency braking device used in many models from the VW Group. However, no problems have yet been reported in connection with other group brands.

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.
