Peugeot RCZ (2012 – 2014)

Published on 30. 10. 2015

Problem description:

In the case of negative exterior temperatures, and after repeated activation of the fuel heater, an electric connection on the cover of the fuel heater can overheat. This can cause the cover to melt, allowing air to enter the fuel system which could lead to stalling of the engine and loss of control of the car.

The recall affects vehicles with 2.0L HDi diesel engine produced between September 2012 and December 2014.

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.
