Opels Astra manufactured from 12 to 27 January 2022 may have a defect in the locking of all four doors in the closed position. There are 249 cars recalled where the doors could open while driving.
With the Citroen C4, a rear wheel hub may become detached, resulting in the loss of a wheel. The French carmaker is searching for 19 cars built on November 17, 2021. In April, the Citroen C4 was recalled due to the risk of the rear spring falling out. At that time, the recall involved 8,770 cars.
On the Land Rover Discovery Sport, activation of the driver-side airbag can result in inflator rupture. The penetration of metal fragments through the cushion material may injure the occupants. The defect may occur in cars manufactured between July 2014 and October 2016.
Nearly eight thousand Mercedes EQE and EQS vehicles built between February 2021 and March 2022 may have a defective towing eye thread in the front and rear bumpers. The towing eye bolt may become loose during towing. Mercedes also recalls five examples of the EQC, for which the high-voltage battery may not meet specifications. Fiat Scudo, built between March 28, 2022, and April 29, 2022, may also have a problem with the high-voltage cable.
