BMW has recalled its X1 SUV in Australia, due to a potential problem with the vehicle’s dashboard.
The German carmaker says that parts of the dash deliberately weakened during production may have been missed.
The softened dash parts are to ensure the airbag deploys as intended during a collision, and the oversight may mean passenger airbags do not offer their maximum protection against injury.
Affected models were sold in Australia between June of last year and April of this year, with 2318 examples on the recall list.
BMW will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer or phone BMW Australia on 1800 813 299.
Peugeot has recalled its large 508 sedan and wagon range in Australia, due to a potential problem with an electrical relay.
The relay may interfere with the controls for the starter motor, resulting in the relay overheating. In extreme cases, the relay may start a fire.
A total of 45 vehicles are affected by the recall in Australia, sold between June and September last year.
Peugeot will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recall should contact their local dealer.
Meanwhile Mercedes-Benz has issued a recall for 11 cars in Australia of varying models and variants.
The recall specifically targets vehicles that were serviced or repaired by Mercedes in December last year.
These vehicles received a software update during the service procedure which may have been incorrect. The software may adversely affect various vehicle functions including airbag deployment and emissions.
Mercedes-Benz will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, inviting them to make an appointment with their local dealer to have the correct software installed at no charge.
