There is a possibility of the vehicle starting unintentionally when the ignition key is in the ‘off’ position in the ignition lock, in which case the starter motor may be activated if the vehicle is in gear, so that the vehicle starts to move. This could lead to persons, in particular outside the vehicle, being injured.
The recall affects vehicles manufactured between 2007 and 2010.

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.
