This week’s vehicle recall notices have been issued by Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Peugeot for a variety of safety issues.
The first of two recall notices from Mercedes-Benz comes for 2020 GLA models (VINs found here) which have been found to have an issue where the ground connection of the front passenger airbag may not meet specification.
In affected vehicles, the front passenger airbag may randomly inflate due to an electrostatic charge that can not be diverted via a ground connection.
A recall notice for 2020 Mercedes-Benz A-Class vehicles (VINs found here) was also issued due to the rear right seat belt bracket, which is used for fastening a child seat to the ISOFIX holder, being missing.
Should this component be missing the child seat will not be secure which could prevent adequate restraint of a child.
In both cases, affected owners should contact their preferred Mercedes-Benz dealer to arranging for a free inspection and repair of their vehicle.
Another recall this week was issued for 2019 Nissan Juke vehicles (VINs found here) as the heat shield may not have been properly positioned around the front driver airbag inflator.
Should the airbag be triggered, hot gas may damage the airbag material or cause the airbag to tear, therefore increasing the risk of injury or death to the vehicle occupant in the event of an accident.
Owners are advised to contact their preferred Nissan dealer to organise for the driver’s airbag assembly to be replaced at no cost.
The final recall notice this week comes for 2016 Peugeot 4008 vehicles (VINs found here) as there may be insufficient engagement of the parking brake.
This issue appears to be caused by excessive internal tolerances of the rear brake calipers. It may prevent the vehicle from being sufficiently restrained when the parking brake is applied.
Affected owners should contact their preferred Peugeot dealer to arrange for the rear brake calipers to be replaced.
