English EN Español ES Français FR Italiano IT Polski PL Русский RU

This week’s recalls:
– Dacia – blocked key
– BMW – defective tyres
– Citroen, Peugeot – seatbelt buckle
– Chrysler, Dodge – logo on the steering wheel


Seven recalls of eight manufacturers were issued for thirteen models in the 4th week of 2021 through the Rapex system. BMW, Citroen, Dacia, Dodge, Chrysler, Infiniti, Opel, and Peugeot announced one recall each.

The key may become blocked in the starting position with Dacia Duster, Logan MCV and Sandero equipped with a 1.5 dCi diesel engine and manufactured between September 2017 to April 2018. Vehicles may not be able to start, or the material of the starter could burn.

The tyres may not have been manufactured according to the specifications with BMW X5 and X6 produced in two weeks of July 2020. Sudden loss of pressure and partial or complete tread separation may occur while driving.



Toyota Aygo was recently recalled due to defective stitching of the rear seatbelt buckles. Its siblings Citroën C1 and Peugeot 108 produced from late August to early October 2020 have the same problem.

Opel Grandland X manufactured in the first half of 2018 may have a defect in the diesel particulate filter (DPF), leading to particulate emissions exceeding the regulatory limits.

Some Dodge and Chrysler models have an insufficiently affixed logo on the steering wheel, which may become detached in the event of an airbag release and be projected into the passenger compartment. Fiat Panda was also recalled in the past due to the same defect.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
