e.GO Life (2019 – 2020)

Published on 22. 11. 2021

Problem description:

The parking brake (and its lever) cannot reach the intended position in damp and/or frosty conditions. As a result, the vehicle may not be secured against rolling away.

In addition, the locking mechanism of the front hood can fail in the event of incorrect operation. This could cause the front hood to detach while the vehicle is being driven, posing a risk to the following traffic.

Furthermore, the passenger airbag could cease to function in temperatures of below -20 and over +80°C. This could increase the risk of injury in the event of an accident.

The e.GO Life vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 1 June 2019 and 30 June 2020.

What the owner should do?

If you read about a recall that you think may affect your car, you should make immediate contact with a e.GO dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish to know more about eventual problems of a specific car (e.g. real mileage, potential traffic accidents damages, odometer rollback, repairs, etc.), then we suggest going to HPI-Check.
