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

This week recalls:
– Volkswagen – cargo net
– Fiat – axle shafts, ABS
– Alfa Romeo – ABS
– Ford Transit – fuel may leak

Seven recalls for 10 models of six manufacturers were announced via Rapex in the 37th week of 2021.

Fiat has announced two recalls, while Alfa Romeo, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Toyota and Volkswagen have one each.

The luggage net may be incorrectly affixed in more than 20,000 Volkswagen Arteon Shooting Brake, Golf Variant and ID.4 vehicles manufactured between November 2019 and May 2021. Improperly attached luggage may end up in the passenger compartment and cause injury to the occupants.

Fiat has announced two recalls for the 500 and 500e models. We wrote about the risk of axle shafts cracking in our article Recall for 13,300 Fiat 500 1.0 GSE; Possible breakage of axle shafts. A second fault on the IBS (integrated braking system) module, with the risk of ABS failure, can occur not only with the small electric Fiat but also with the Alfa Romeo Giulia and Stelvio. Dozens of cars built between January 2019 and February 2021 may be affected.

With Ford Transits manufactured in June this year, diesel fuel may be leaking from the return fuel line. For the second time in a short period, Mercedes’ new S-Class is recalled due to wiring problems.

Hyundai out of Rapex so far

Hyundai‘s recalls, which we write about in the article: Several recalls for several Hyundai models, have not yet appeared in the EU Rapex system.

Details on this week’s recalls can be found in the table below.
