This week recalls:
– DS3 Crossback, Peugeot 2008 – AdBlue, fuel tank
– BMW – brakes, ABS
– Mercedes A-Class, GLA – short circuit
– Fiat Tipo – airbag


Eight recalls of six manufacturers were issued for 15 models in the 17th week of 2021 through the Rapex system. Citroën and Mercedes-Benz had two actions, while BMW, Fiat, Peugeot, and Porsche announced one recall each.

Citroën has announced two recalls for the DS3 Crossback model. With 6,333 vehicles manufactured from mid-May to mid-September 2019, the fuel tank may be defective. Moreover, with cars produced between October 1, 2019, to October 6, 2020, the AdBlue injector may be blocked. The second case also applies to the Peugeot 2008 from the same period.

Nine BMW models from 2018 – 2021 may have a defective hydraulic brake system unit, which may cause limited braking support and ABS system failure. 3,840 cars of the 7, 8, iX3, M3, M4, M8, X5, X6, X7 series can be affected.



Mercedes-Benz recalls 1,538 A-Class and GLA models due to a possible air-conditioning system’s condensed-water drainage hose blockage, which can cause water to enter the vehicle interior and short-circuit some electrical components. With the 4,568 GLE SUVs from the production period between April 2018 to January 2020, the tyre carcass could be damaged. Affected can be the W166 and W167 models fitted with tyres recalled by the manufacturer Continental.

With almost 20,000 Fiat Tipos produced between 31 October 2020 and 9 February 2021, the airbags may not be activated in the event of an accident. With the 159 Porsche Macan from the beginning of this year, certain screw connections in the undercarriage area may be faulty.

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