Skoda has recalled two models in Australia this week, due to a potential problem with the seatbelt safety restraint system.
The seatbelt pre-tensioner gas generator may have been incorrectly crimped to the actuator pipe.
During a collision, the explosive charge used to trigger the pre-tensioner may interrupt this connection, potentially causing debris to circulate around the cabin.
Unrestrained objects during a collision could pose a hazard to the vehicle occupants.
Meanwhile, Honda has recalled its Accord midsizer in Australia, due to a potential problem with a battery sensor.
The sensor may have been improperly manufactured before installation, and gaps in the device may allow moisture to intrude.
Should this occur, components in the unit may corrode, eventually leading to a short circuit. In extreme circumstances, a fire hazard could be present.
The recall process will include an inspection of the unit and replacement if necessary, but Honda says availability for the necessary parts to perform the recall is temporarily unconfirmed.
Affected Accords were sold in Australia between March 2013 and February last year.
Skoda and Honda will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learning more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer. Skoda Australia can also be reached on 1800 607 540.
