Five models of four car manufacturers were recalled at the 34th week of 2018 through the Rapex system. Volkswagen, Seat and Mazda announced one recall each, Mercedes-Benz issued two. Leaking gas is given twice as a reason. CNG at the Seat Ibiza and propane-butane at the VW California´s built-in kitchen.

Seat Ibiza TGIs with compressed natural gas drive may have poorly tightened gas pipe nuts, through which the CNG could escape. A defect can occur on all the model produced in 2018. Volkswagen also reports the risk of gas leakage in an older California T5 models, but also in the recent T6. The screw connections in the gas installation of the built-in kitchen may be inadequate for cars manufactured between 14 January 2015 and 19 May 2018.

Mazda 6

The fact that it pays off to watch the recalls especially for the owners of older cars is evidenced by a brand new recall for the 13-16-years-old Mazda 6 produced in the years 2002 – 2005. The cause is the driver’s airbag, whose inflator can explode during activation and its small metal fragments can injure the crew. All previous Mazda 6 recalls can be found on our new section at uk.car-recalls.eu.



Mercedes-Benz

Last week, the Mercedes-Benz announced a recall to E-Class models (II 2017 – I 2018) due to an incorrect navigation software installed, storing the wrong location of the vehicle – we wrote here. This week extends it to the A-Class models produced between 19 January 2018 and April 17, 2018. When the emergency call system (eCall) is used, the location communicated to the emergency centre might not correspond to the actual vehicle location. Other this week´s recall involving the Sprinter (December 4, 2017 – May 28, 2018) – the warning light switch backlight can be deactivated due to faulty software.
