23. 2. 2020 In Weekly Overviews ()


This week’s recalls:
– Zafira, Vivaro – water penetration
– Yaris GRMN – fire
– Corolla – sunroof deflector
– ProAce – counterweight


Seven recalls for 8 models were issued by four carmakers in the 7th week of 2020. Three recalls were published by Toyota, while Opel had two. Ford and Land Rover announced one recall each.

Two recalls were announced this week by Opel. The screw connection of the trailer coupling module may be defective with the Grandland X, while with the Opel Zafira Life and the Vivaro, water may leak into the vehicle interior. This can impair the proper functioning of the airbags.

Toyota

The fuel-delivery resin spacer between the fuel injector and the engine’s cylinder head does not have the appropriate thermal resistance with the Yaris GRMN‘s limited edition turbocharged 2ZR engine. Consequently, it could deform, reducing the injector’s head sealing, resulting in fuel leakage and increasing the risk of fire.

An attachment holding a counterweight could break during driving with the 2014-2016 ProAce van. The counterweight could become detached from the vehicle and fall onto the road, similar to the related Peugeot Expert, Citroën Jumpy and Fiat Scudo models, which were recalled due to the same defect last fall.

Toyota Corolla equipped with a sunroof and manufactured between December 2018 to February 2019 may have a poorly mounted wind deflector that may detach while driving.

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.
