Holden has issued a recall for its Captiva SUV for the second time in two months, this time surrounding a potential engine issue.

Whereas the previous recall was for all CG Captiva 5 and CG Captiva 7 models, built between May 2014 and September of this year, the latest recall is specifically for models with the 2.0 litre diesel engine.

The affected models were built between December 2006 and February 2008, and may suffer rocker arm bearing failure if these components have been exposed to degraded engine oil for prolonged periods.

Failed bearings may cause a loss of power or a stalled engine, causing a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

Volkswagen is recalling its 2012 and 2013 Caddy commercial models, due to a potential wiring issue.

A loose earth attachment for the on-board power supply unit may cause the starter motor to engage while the vehicle is being unlocked.

The vehicle may attempt to move if it has been left in-gear, causing a potential hazard to people in the immediate vicinity.

KTM has recalled a range of models sold between June and December 22 of this year.

The list includes 125, 150 and 250 SX (Model Year 2016), along with 250, 350 and 450 SX-F (Model Year 2016) variants.

The recall surrounds an issue with the bike’s wheel spokes, as a weakness has been identified with some. Spokes may break while riding, causing a hazard to the rider and others.

Husqvarna is also recalling various models for the same reasons as KTM.

These models include 125 and 250 TC (Model Year 2016) along with 250, 350 and 450 FC (Model Year 2016), which were sold between July and December 23 of this year.

The relevant manufacturers will attempt to contact affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer.
