Holden has recalled various VF Commodore and WN Caprice models for the fourth time, issuing a second recall targeting the front seats.

The current recall centres around a suspect weld on either or both of the front two seats, which may fail if subject to excessive force (such as a collision).

Almost all VF and WN models are affected, with build dates ranging from February 2013 to May of this year.

Holden recalled its Commodore and Caprice models in May for a potential problem with the wiring harness for the seatbelt pre-tensioners, which could make contact with a seat bolt and wear through.

A potential windscreen wiper motor problem sparked another recall last month which also included some VE Commodores, as the incorrect grease may have been applied to some of the motors.

A smaller recall was issued by Holden earlier this month, specifically targeting Commodore and Caprice models with the LPG-powered V6 engine.

Aston Martin has recalled its DB9 and Rapide S models this week, sold between June 2013 and July 1 this year.

A potential problem with the transmission control switch circuit board could see the car select neutral unexpectedly, causing a loss of drive.

The affected models were sold in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia only.

Finally, BMW has recalled its C 600 Sport and C 650 GT scooters, sold between January 2013 and July 1 of this year.

A potential timing-chain tensioner defect has been identified, which could eventually cause the chain to slip and the engine to stall.

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