Vauxhall Meriva (2009 – 2011)

Published on 30 December 2016

It is possible that the steel cable for attaching the seat-belt tensioner on the outer side of the seat may suffer fatigue if used for a long time with the seat in certain positions. As a consequence, the steel cable could snap in the event of an accident, thus increasing the risk of injury to the person wearing the seat-belt.

The recall affects vehicles produced between 2009 and 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 Vauxhall dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

How to contact your dealer

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.
