11 models of 5 car manufacturers were recalled at the 29th week of 2018 through the Rapex system. Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Volkswagen and Audi announced one recall each.

Ford has recently solved relatively serious problems through its recalls. In February, the owners of models from the years 2010 – 2014, equipped with 1.6 Ecoboost engines, were recalled for the risk of cylinder head cracking – we wrote here. In March they were the owners of 2014 – 2015 Fords with 2.0 litre Duratorq engines, due to the risk of overheating and subsequent damage to the oil sump – we wrote here.

At the 29th week of 2018, Ford announces another recall through the Rapex system. This time concerns the C-Max, Focus, Kuga, Mondeo, Galaxy and Transit Connect models with a production date between 2014-2018. The clutch pressure plate may break, says the report A12/0963/18.

PSA Group

A similarly widespread and long-term problem, this time with the front wiper motor, is solved by the PSA Group. With corrosion and subsequent wiper motor failures are troubled the Peugeot 4007, Citroën C-Crosser produced between 2007 and 2012, as well as the Mitsubishi ASX from the years 2010 to 2017 – we wrote here. The same problem is now reported with the Mitsubishi Outlander (2005-2012).

Mercedes-Benz

Last month, the Mercedes-Benz recalled the C-Class and E-Class models produced from August 2017 to February 2018 due to poorly welded backrests of the driver and passenger seats – we wrote here. Now it appears that a similar problem occurs also on seats in cars made a little earlier – from April to August 2017. The front seat backs may not be fully secured on its right side.

Volkswagen, Audi

Issues are not avoided either by the Volkswagen Group this week. For the Tiguan Allspace with the production date from August 2017 to January 2018, the right and left front axle nuts might not have been tightened properly. For this year’s Audi Q5 (April – May 2018), the individual pistons of the rear wheel brake do not have to work as expected. This could lead to a delayed braking effect and an increased risk of an accident.
