Land Rover may lose spoiler, parked Hyundai may roll away (week 29/22)

This week’s recalls:
– Land Rover Range Rover – rear spoiler
– Hyundai Ioniq 5 – parking brake
– Mercedes Vito – coolant pump
– Dodge RAM – airbag

Five recalls for five models of five carmakers were announced via Rapex in the 29th week of 2022.

Dodge, Hyundai, Kia, Land Rover and Mercedes-Benz have one recall each – see the table at the end of the article.

An incorrect assembly and adhesive failures caused a recall for more than 78,000 Land Rover Range Rover Sport vehicles built between May 2009 and March 2011. The top of the spoiler can detach from the trunk spoiler’s main body and fall onto the road.

In the case of the Hyundai Ioniq 5 and Kia EV6, the parking (braking) mechanism can be disconnected due to a software error. We have previously reported the fault in more than 120,000 vehicles of both brands in an article. This week, recalls also appear in the EU Rapex alert system – see table below.

Similarly, we reported on Mercedes’ large recall in our article Fire risk: Mercedes extends recall to nearly one million cars. The initial action has been extended to the V-Class and Vito, also mentioned in this week’s regular Rapex report.

The side airbag curtain can become damaged due to internal corrosion. It can deploy spontaneously with more than a quarter million RAM 1500 Pickup, 2500 Pickup, 3500 Pickup, 3500 10K LB Cab and RAM Truck vehicles. Because of this, Dodge has issued two recalls affecting only individually imported vehicles in Europe.

Details on this week’s recalls can be found in the table below.

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.
