Volvo recalls thousands of cars over fuel pump fuse, while Mercedes over steering fault (week 24/21)


English EN Español ES Français FR Italiano IT Polski PL Русский RU

This week recalls:
– Volvo – fuel pump 15A fuse
– Mercedes-Benz – steering shaft
– Ford, Jaguar – seatbelts
– Audi, Mitsubishi – Takata airbags


Thirteen recalls of nine manufacturers were issued for 27 models in the 24th week of 2021 through the Rapex system.

Mercedes-Benz has four new recalls, while Audi two. Dodge, Ford, Jaguar, Mitsubishi, Porsche, Subaru, and Volvo have each announced one.

Volvo recalls almost 330,000 cars across virtually its entire model range, except the smallest SUV, the XC40. With cars built in 2019 and 2020, a 15A fuse in the low-pressure fuel pump may blow, causing the engine to stall and not be able to start.

Over 90,000 cars are also being recalled by Mercedes-Benz this week. In its case, it is a possible steering fault with the CLA (BR 117), GLA (BR 156), A-Class (BR 176) and B-Class (BR 242, 246) models. A borehole in the universal joint on the steering shaft may have an incorrect size and may develop a play that can cause the joint to become detached over time. Vehicles manufactured between November 2016 to July 2017 are recalled.

Mercedes is also announcing a recall for E-Class and C-Class convertibles, where the rear seat backrests may not be correctly fitted. With 2018 and 2019 Sprinter vans, the front axle brake hose could be damaged by friction. With an electric eSprinter, the high-voltage battery module could fall out on the road.



Fords EcoSport and Fiesta produced in February and March 2021 may have faulty seatbelt reel mechanisms, while 2021 Jaguar E-Type seatbelt pre-tensioner.

Porsche and Subaru may have suspension problems, Audi and Mitsubishi recall their older model cars due to Takata airbags.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
