Problem description:

1. The cars have an incorrect version of the engine’s software, leading to errors in the cooling strategy and malfunction of the engine’s “high temperature” warning system. This could lead to unnoticed overheating of the engine, which may leak oil and also fail, increasing the risk of accident.

The recall affects vehicles produced between 23. 2. 2017 – 23. 3. 2018 – VIN VF3LHEHZRHS028975 – VF3LHEHZRKS001574.

2. The cylinder-housing oil gallery plug may not have been correctly tightened. As a consequence oil might leak which presents a skid hazard for following traffic.

The recall affects vehicles produced between 27. 4. 2018 – 30. 5. 2018 – VIN: VF3LHAHXWJS210762 to VF3LJEHZRJS259159.

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 Peugeot 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's history

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.
