Holden has recalled its full range of Commodore, Ute, Caprice and Sportwagon model in Australia this week, fitted with the factory LPG engine package.

The carmaker has identified a problem with the LPG vaporiser, which may have a loose electrical ground connection if the unit has been serviced or replaced.

A loose ground connection may cause a spark, resulting in a fire hazard in extreme circumstances.

Holden stresses that its LPG models are safe, as manufactured, and that only incorrect handling during a service procedure could potentially lead to problems.

Affected models are from the 2012-2015 model-years in both VE and VF spec (WM and WN for Caprice), built between February 2011 and September 2015. Just over 5000 vehicles are on the recall list for Australia.

The recall procedure will include an inspection of the LPG vaporiser ground strap connection, ensuring the ground bolt is securely fastened to the body and replacement of the fuel feed hose, if necessary.

Jaguar has issued a recall for its 2010-2011 model-year XJ, due to a potential problem with the vehicle’s front airbags.
If the airbags are required during a frontal collision, the airbags may deploy with too much force.

Should this occur, an increased risk of injury may be present for the vehicle occupants.

The recall process will include a software update for the vehicle’s Restraint Control Module (RCM).

Mercedes-Benz is also recalling selected GLA-Class, A-Class, B-Class, CLA-Class and A 45 models in Australia this week due to potential airbag problems.

The German carmaker is recalling numerous examples sold locally between October and December of last year.

The front airbags may not be to specification, and the devices may not deploy properly when required during a collision requiring the airbags to maximise safety.

Should this occur, an increased risk of injury may be present for the vehicle occupants.

Offending airbag units will be replaced at no cost to owners.

The relevant carmakers 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. Holden Australia can be contacted on 1800 632 826.

Please note - the above recalls by Jaguar and Mercedes-Benz are not related to the global Takata airbag recall.
