Timing belt problem with Peugeot and Citroën, LED headlights issue with Mazda CX-30 (week 47/20)


English EN Español ES Français FR Italiano IT Polski PL Русский RU

This week’s recalls:
– Citroën, Peugeot 1.2 petrol – timing belt
– Mazda CX-30 – LED lights
– Volvo S60, S80 – airbag
– VW Phaeton – sunroof glass


Seven recalls of six manufacturers were issued for 20 models in the 47th week of 2020 through the Rapex system. Citroën, Hyundai, Mazda, Peugeot, and Volkswagen announced one recall each, while Volvo had two.

The vacuum pump may be damaged due to abrasion of the timing belt material with Peugeot and Citroëns equipped with a 1.2-liter supercharged petrol engine and manufactured between March 2013 and April 2017. As a result, the braking assistance could be reduced or lost, increasing the risk of an accident.

The recall affects more than half a million cars worldwide. We wrote about the problem in more detail in this article: Peugeot and Citroën to recall 1.2-litre petrol engines. The brake booster may fail.



Electric cars and hybrids are represented this week in the list of recalls by the Swedish Polestar and the Korean Hyundai Kona (a defect in the high-voltage lithium-ion battery was reported in Portugal, where it is sold under the name of Kauai).

The Mazda CX-30 may have poorly adjusted LED headlights and older Volvo S60 and S80 defective airbags. Volkswagen is expanding the recall for the 2008 Phaeton limousine, with which the adhesion of the glass cover on the sliding roof may completely detach while the vehicle is in motion.

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