Safety Recalls - DizzyCheek
Is there a "non-trade" IE consumer accesible website that details safety recall campaigns that are live at present. I have summat very odd happenning to the brakes on my 2001 Ibiza and would like to find out if there is a more widespread issue. my garage (not a dealer) said that the part should last "longer than the car" .

ThankYew

1 - the CBCB 'car by bar breakdown' on the site lists recalls

2 - the vehicle inspectorate website lists all its press releases with recalls

3 - parkers web site also lists recalls, as does the AA

for your peace of mind, HJ's CBCB and the AA say there are no recalls for the Ibiza

In The Car By Car Breakdown!

A known fault (Ibiza 1994-1999) states

\"Pedal boxes can shear off at the weld.\"

Is the Pedal Box a device around which the pedals pivot down as you press them and then spring back up into position as you take yoor foot off.

In that case the Pedal Box has broken loose in this car after less than 3 years and that is why the brake pedal is malfunctioning, the clutch isn\'t the best eithert.

This is a very dangerous fault, luckily it happened to me in slow town traffic and not on the Motorway. Surely a design fault that stretches back to 1994 should be sorted by now, especially concerning the brake pedal mount.


Thank you so much borasport20 for the prompt response.

Sounds like a safety recall issue to me ! Why not email the Vehicle inspectorate and ask them why there was no recall for it. ?

The VI do not have the power to enforce a recall on a manufacturer. Recalls in the UK are an entirely voluntary affair, through an SMMT code-of-practice.

This is somewhat different to the USA, where NHTSA (a Federal agency) have the power to investigate customer complaints and can enforce a recall or a design change. If you have a car which is also sold in the US then it's worth checking their website for complaints/investigations/recalls - this can be most illuminating!! www.nhtsa.dot.gov/
