Opel Astra’s doors may open while driving, and Citroen C4’s wheel can detach (week 34/22)



This week’s recalls:
– Opel Astra – door lock
– Citroen C4 – wheel hub
– Land Rover Discovery – airbag
– Fiat, Mercedes – fire risk


During the holiday season, the number of recalls did not increase at the usual pace, so here is a summary of the last month instead of the usual weekly reports. In August 2022, seven recalls were announced via Rapex for eight models of six brands.

Mercedes-Benz has announced two recalls, while Citroën, Fiat, Land Rover, Mitsubishi, and Opel have one each – see the table at the end of the article.



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.

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.
