Due to an Engine Control Module (ECM) software error, under certain very limited engine start conditions, the ECM may set an incorrect engine throttle valve position. As a result, at engine speeds in excess of 3600 rpm, the vehicle may briefly accelerate unexpectedly.
The recall affects vehicles fitted with 1.2L supercharged petrol engine and manufactured between 25/10/2010 – 27/02/2015.
