In some vehicles, under certain driving conditions, the urea injector may block when the engine is turned off, meaning that no urea will be injected when the car is started up again.
This blockage is temporary, and the injector will start working normally again after 12 minutes of driving. This may lead to Nitrogen Oxides (NOx) emissions above the regulatory limits.
The Opel Grandland X vehicles affected by this recall were manufactured between 1 October 2019 and 16 March 2020.
Opel recall code: 20-N-126

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.
