22. 12. 2019 In Weekly Overviews ()


This week’s recalls:
– Volvo – melted intake manifold
– Citroën – the ball joint
– Ford – the brake hoses
– Opel – the seatbelt


Six recalls for 13 models of five manufacturers were announced in the 50th week of 2019. Volvo issued two actions, while Citroën, Ford, Mitsubishi and Opel one recall each.

Volvo

We wrote about the upcoming large Nordic car manufacturer recall a few months ago in an article:: Volvo to recall over 500,000 cars due to a possible intake manifold fire.

In the last weeks of 2019, detailed information about specific models and affected engines has been published in the Rapex system. Virtually the entire model range is affected – all the models can be found on our page: Volvo’s most common problems.

Volvo also recalls the V60 model manufactured from December 2018 to April 2019. Due to an error in the manufacturing process, the wheelbase is out of specification.

Citroën

Citroën announces another of the endless series of recalls for Jumpy and Spacetourer vans. This time, the ball joint on the wishbone suspension may loosen. Check out all of its previous recalls under the following links.



Ford

Ford recalled a Ranger pickup because of a problem with the front brake hoses already in June. With cars manufactured from June 2016 to August 2018, the hoses could be ruptured due to cyclic fatigue. This week, Ford Ranger Raptor with a production date in Q1 2019 appears in the Rapex database. The brake hoses may get deformed and can come into contact with the rims.

Other this week´s recalls

Opel Combo E (2019) – passenger seat belt
Mitsubishi Outlander PHEV (2013 – 2014) – Discharge and sudden stop

Where now?


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 dealer or workshop that’s been officially authorised to perform repairs on behalf of the manufacturer and ask for the details.

If you wish fully comprehensive vehicle check, with more than 80 data points about the history of the car, then we suggest going to HPI-Check, which provides information on a specific vehicle using also the vehicle registration number.
