Opel Adam (2013 – 2015)

Published on 24 April 2015

Problem description:

The 18″ light alloy wheel rims can crack on the surface with high mileage. This may cause a reduction in the clamping force of the wheel bolts and, in the worst case scenario, loss of the wheel.

The recall affects vehicles manufactured between 2013 – 2015.

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 Opel 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.

Check the vehicle

UK car-owners can easily make a pre-check by visiting DVLA website and entering the car registration number; it will also reveal the car’s current MOT status.
