Nine recalls for 33 models of eight manufacturers were announced via Rapex in week 32 of 2021.

Two recalls have been announced by Opel, while Citroën, Lamborghini, Mercedes-Benz, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault and Volvo have one recall each.

We reported on the largest recall of the week in a separate article – see the link below. French and European authorities are currently reporting further timing belt problems with several PSA Group models. The recall so far only affects selected markets:

PSA Group (Citroen, Opel, Peugeot) reports more problems with timing belts



The centring pin for the rear suspension spring may not be adequately welded on the 370 Opel Vivaro and Zafira Life vans produced this April. With more than 4,000 Volvo hybrid models, the engine may stall even though the onboard instruments show a range of 150-250 kilometres. The fuel tank under-pressure that is not appropriately released is to blame. Over ninety Mercedes C-Class hybrids may have the high-voltage battery incorrectly screwed to the body of the vehicle.

Renault Master is being recalled for the second time in a short period due to a possible fuel leak and fire. This time, more than 16,000 vans from 2018 and 2019 are involved. Seven Lamborghini Uruses may have a cracked engine block.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
