Should this occur, the driver should notice the ABS warning light illuminated in the instrument cluster. Also, the ABS system may not function as intended during an emergency, creating a hazard for the vehicle occupants and other road users.
For Skoda, the recall in Australia concerns the Octavia only, from the 2008 and 2009 model-years. In total, around 13,600 vehicles are affected in Australia.
