Motor Vehicle Recalls

There are more than you think

With the second recall of the new VE Commodore you might be thinking that Holden have a real problem with their new cars. Surely there shouldn’t be that many recalls in a matter of just a few months for a new car but you might be surprised to know that motor vehicle recalls are going on all the time.

The Australian Government runs a website known as Product Recalls Australia where they list all the items that manufacturers are recalling because problems and faults have been found in their design and maufacture.

A look at the motor vehicle section makes for some interesting reading. Since September 1 car manufacturers have issued the following recalls here in Australia:

    Sept 4 – Honda CR-V, Integra and Civic (2001 and 2002 models) – problems with the ignition switch
