An increased risk of fire and the possibility of doors opening while driving are the reasons for recalls with more than 40,000 Peugeot 208 and 308.
More than 31,000 Peugeot 208s may have fuel lines installed that could be damaged by contact with other components. This could lead to fuel leaks and increased fire risk with cars manufactured between 5 August and 23 November 2021.
With the 13,535 Peugeot 308s, the doors could open while driving. “Defective sliding parts on the outer door handles could cause the doors not to close properly,” a spokeswoman for the Stellantis Deutschland confirmed to kfz-rueckrufe.de.
The same problem also affected 249 Opel Astra vehicles that left the factory between October 28, 2021, and January 27, 2022.
