24 models of seven car manufacturers were recalled at the 38th week of 2018 through the Rapex system. Five recalls were announced by Citroën, while Opel and Peugeot reported three and Mercedes-Benz two. At least one recall was reported by Lexus and Ford. MV Agusta motorcycles are also being recalled due to the problems of wheel attachment.

An incorrect version of the engine software may cause PSA engines to overheat, which may cause an oil leak from the sump drain cap. Additionally, because of a malfunction of the warning system, there is no driver alert. The defect occurs on cars manufactured from the beginning of 2016 to the spring of 2018, specifically on Peugeot Traveler, Peugeot Expert, Citroën Jumpy, Citroën Spacetourer, Peugeot 308, Peugeot 3008, Peugeot 5008 and Citroën C4 Picasso. The range of VIN codes can be found under the link on each model. Moreover, at cars manufactured in May 2018, the oil plug in the engine block may be released. In addition to the above-mentioned models, the new DS7 Crossback is also affected. At Citroën C3 produced in January 2018, the steering column assembly may not be correct, and on Citroën Jumpy from 2015 to 2017 the tow hitch bracket can deform when it is placed under maximum pressure.

Ford

After the recalls due to the crackling clutch pressure plate and problems with 1.6 Ecoboost and 2.0L Duratorq engines – we wrote here –  Ford is addressing another major issue. For the S-Max, Galaxy, Mondeo and Edge models produced from 2014 to 2018, the air conditioning clutch pulley plate could become loose and fall onto the road surface.

Tyres

If you got 215/60 R16 Continental ContiPremiumContact 5 tyres manufactured in the 33rd to 36th week of 2017 on your car, you will probably get a new – recall here.



Opel

Four models are being recalled over by RAPEX this week by Opel. With Opel Zafira and Opel Cascada from 2017 to 2018 there is a calibration error in the turbocharger’s diagnostic monitoring. In the event of damage to the turbocharger, it may overheat and lead to a fire. This Year’s Opel Insignia may have a poorly located clip of the fuel line bundle, which might chafe against the fuel pump hose. In the Grandland X model year 2018, someone forgot to tighten the screws on the lower shock absorber mountings.

Mercedes-Benz

We mentioned the problem with falling strips and spoilers already in May in connection with Audi, BMW and VW – we wrote here. This week, the Mercedes-Benz C-Class model from 2016 – 2017 is also joined this companionship, with the decorative strips on the rear waist finisher that have not been glued on correctly. As a consequence, they can detach and fall into the road. For the E-Class Convertible made in the autumn of 2017, the ISOFIX console, anchoring the child seat to the car body, may not be adequate.

Lexus

Toyota recalled last week for the possible fire of its hybrid models – we wrote here.  The Lexus LC500h also has a problem with a hybrid drive. The vehicles’ electronic control unit (ECU) has been improperly programmed and the throttle is not coordinated with the transmission and gear changes. As a consequence, when accelerating in highway driving mode, the hybrid system could shut down.

Chrysler

The ten-year-old Chrysler 300 and Chrysler Aspen owners should also receive a letter about a recall soon. It will be about replacement of the passenger airbag and if the invitation does not arrive, you will need to contact your nearest dealer on your own. How to do it, we advise here.

Motorcycles

For MV Agusta Brutale motorcycles, some models from this March and April may have excessive play between the fork and the clamping screw. This could cause a loss of control during normal use.
