Isuzu has issued a recall for its MU-X 4WD in Australia this week, due to a potential problem with the fuel tank.
The carmaker has identified an issue with the fuel tank’s securing band bolts, which may not have been tightened to specification as the vehicle was manufactured.
Over time, the tank may work its way loose, causing a fuel leak. In extreme circumstances, this could pose a fire hazard.
Just 12 MU-Xs from the ‘2015.5’ model-year are on the recall list in Australia, built over a one-week period in April this year. Of those, not all will be affected by this issue.
The recall process will see the tank and tank band inspected, while the offending bolts will be tightened to the correct torque setting.
Isuzu Ute Australia has already reached out to the 12 affected owners, but if any owner wishes to learn more about the latest round of recalls, they should contact their local dealer.
Peugeot 308 GTI Recalled
Peugeot Australia has this week issued a recall for its 308 GTI performer in Australia.
The concerning issue is the GTI’s tyre valves, which could be susceptible to leakage.
A leaking tyre valve will result in a loss of air pressure, which could affect the vehicle’s ride and handling.
Drivers who do not notice the change in tyre pressure may be caught out, leading to a loss of vehicle control.
A total of 64 GTIs are on the list, sold in Australia in August and October of last year. The recall process will see the offending tyre valves replaced.
Peugeot Australia will attempt to contact all affected owners shortly, but any owner wishing to learn more about the latest round of recalls should contact their local dealer of phone Peugeot Australia on 1300 304 077.
