More than 21,000 Opel Corsa tyres at risk of bursting (week 22/21)



This week recalls:
– Opel Corsa – wheel rims
– Combo, Berlingo, Partner, Rifter, Yaris – hand brake
– Lamborghini Aventador – front bonnet
– Mercedes Sprinter – power steering


Fourteen recalls of nine manufacturers were issued for 20 models in the 22nd week of 2021 through the Rapex system.

Mercedes-Benz has four new recalls, while Opel and Volkswagen two each. Audi, Citroën, Jeep, Lamborghini, Peugeot and Toyota have each announced one.

21,149 Opel Corsa‘s built between December 2019 and July 2020 are at risk of a tyre burst or tear. The vehicles may be fitted with incorrect 16 and 17-inch wheels that do not match the offset (ET) information on the EC Certificate of Conformity (CoC). This can cause the tyres to come into contact with the bodywork.

Opel also recalls small Combo vans where the clipping of the control button of the hand-brake restraint system might be incorrect. The hand-brake might not be correctly engaged when used, leading to the vehicle spontaneously move when parked. Related vans of the Citroën Berlingo, Peugeot Partner and Peugeot Rifter manufactured between 19 February 2021 and 4 March 2021 are also affected. The hand-brake may also have a software problem with the Toyota Yaris HV manufactured between July 2020 and April 2021.



Several Audi models and VW Tiguan may have a fault with the towbar. Since other manufacturers have also had problems with this equipment recently, we looked through our archives and found over 20 cars that could lose their trailer while driving. In addition, Volkswagen recalls 3,604 T-Roc SUVs due to a faulty right front seatbelt retractor.

Mercedes-Benz announces four recalls for six models, starting with the AMG GT four-door coupe and ending with the Sprinter. Reasons include possible damage to the starter motor positive cable, poor attachment of the condensed water drainage hose, roof rail attachment, or possible power steering failure.

With 2017-2021 Lamborghini Aventador, the hood hinge could be defective and may not hold the hood closed as designed. A similar problem was solved a week ago by the Daciawe have reported here.
