Vauxhall Corsa and Adam recall

Vauxhall Adam and Corsa recall for a potential steering fault has been extended

Vauxhall has extended its urgent recall for the Vauxhall Corsa and Vauxhall Adam. Previously only affecting models registered since May 2014 the ‘safety check’ now extends to cars registered from February 2014.

The company advises that, as a precaution, “these vehicles should not be driven prior to inspection". The problem relates to a component in the steering that has been found to “not meet Vauxhall's specification".

Vauxhall became aware of the condition during routine quality control at the vehicle manufacturing plant, but insists that it is not aware of any accident of injury related to this condition.

Owners can check whether their car is affected by visiting the Vauxhall website and clicking the box titled ‘Urgent safety check for Adam and Corsa’. Customers can also contact Vauxhall Customer Assistance Centre for advice on 0800 2060034 between 09:00 and 19:00 (Mon-Fri) or 09:00 and 17:30 (Sat-Sun).

As of Sunday 28 September, Vauxhall Motors has been joined by the AA, to help support customers in determining if their vehicle is affected. This means customers can now call the AA directly, on 0800 553388, between 07:00 and midnight, seven days a week.

The AA will guide customers through the basic checks, or send someone out if customers aren’t comfortable doing it themselves. If their car isn’t one of the affected models they’ll advise them their car is safe to use, while if it is, the AA will arrange recovery to a local Vauxhall dealer. Replacement vehicles will be provided if required.
