Peugeot and Mercedes-Benz have both issued recalls this week for their 4008 and E-Class models respectively.
For Peugeot, a total of 1615 examples of the 4008 SUV are on the list, sold in Australia between May 2014 and December of last year.
Like the Mitsubishi ASX Last week (the 4008 being an ASX underneath), the 4008 may experience a problem with the constantly variable transmission (CVT automatic), leading to an unintended delay in acceleration.
Such a delay may cause a hazard to the vehicle occupants and other road users.
The recall process will involve a software upgrade for the transmission control unit, and all works will be performed at no cost to owners.
Meanwhile, the previous-generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been recalled for a potential problem with the fuel pump module.
The pump wiring harness may be allowed to make contact with the frame of the rear seat base, which could cause the pump to fail in extreme circumstances.
Should this occur while driving, the engine may stall, causing a hazard for the vehicle occupants and other road users.
Affected models were sold in Australia between October 2015 and August of this year.
Peugeot and Mercedes-Benz 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.
