July recall round up: Supercars, fire risks and fuel leaks

Published 04 August 2016

From supercars to runabouts, there were scores of recalls issued in July 2016, covering minor problems like the potential failure of oxygen sensors through to dangers like fire risks and loss of steering control.

Vehicles on the July recall list include the incredibly expensive Porsche 918 hybrid supercar - in which incorrect bolts may cause the seatbelt to malfunction in an accident – along with the AMG-Mercedes GT, which may lose drive because of a driveshaft problem.

More mainstream models recalled in July include the Nissan Qashqai, Pulsar, Juke and X-Trail. More than 7000 Nissans need to have ECU reprogramming to correctly display oxygen sensor faults, while a small number of Peugeot and Citroen models need to be recalled over a fuel risk leak.

More than 2000 Vauxhall Mokkas need to be checked to remedy potential fire risk. The issue is not the same as the problems causing fires in Zafira models, however – it is related to water ingress into the electronic brake control module, rather than a fault with the ventilation system.

Other models affected include more than 5000 examples of the Toyota Yaris, due to potential suspension failures, along with more than 6000 2003-2004 Jeep models due to a risk of inadvertent airbag deployment.
