Renault has issued a recall for its Trafic III work van in Australia this week, due to a potential problem with the rear axle.
The carmaker had identified a bolt on the Panhard rod which might not have been tightened to specification during construction.
Drivers may notice an abnormal noise from the rear of the vehicle, which may be accompanied by tyre friction inside the wheel arch.
If left unattended, the bolt may part company from the vehicle, potentially leading to unstable handling and the risk of a collision.
Affected models were sold locally from July 2015 to January of last year, and 1472 examples are on the recall list for Australia.
Renault will attempt to contact affected owners shortly. Owners can contact their local dealer for more, or phone Renault Australia on 1800 009 008.
Jaguar has recalled its XF model in Australia, due to a potential problem with a fuel hose.
The hose may be allowed to make contact with the vehicle body, which could cause the hose to rub and deteriorate.
Should the hose deteriorate, owners may notice fuel odours inside the cabin and a puddle of fuel may be present as owners drive away after parking the vehicle.
As with any fuel leak, a fire hazard may be present if left unattended.
Only XF models with the 2.0 litre GTDi petrol engine are affected by the recall, built between May 2013 and June 2015. A total of 642 vehicles are on the recall list for Australia.
Jaguar 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.
