Volkswagen has recalled its Polo light car over a potential problem with the 1.2 litre four-cylinder petrol engine.

A total of 2708 vehicles from the 2015 model-year are affected by the recall, which targets a weakness with the camshaft adjuster pulley.

The pulley may break during driving, which could result in serious damage to the engine internals, a stalled engine and an immobilised car.

If the engine stalls suddenly, the car may pose a risk to other road users.

Holden has followed up a recall from Suzuki that was issued last month, concerning various Ignis models.

The extremely similar Holden YG Cruze has now also been recalled for the same reason.

This Cruze (pictured above) is the light all-wheel-drive crossover that sold during the early-to-mid 2000s, and not the small sedan, hatch and wagon models that replaced the Viva in Holden’s line-up from 2009.

A potential problem with the ignition switch has been identified, whereby the grease used to lubricate the switch may carbonise.

Frequent use may result in smoke emitting from the switch or a fire in extreme cases. Affected YG Cruze models were built between January 2002 and December 2005.

LDV is recalling selected models from its commercial van range, due to - of all things - an incorrect identification label.

The label does not contain the manufacturer’s name, and therefore does not comply with standards for a mandatory Administrator's Circular For Identification Label.

And finally, Ducati is recalling its Multistrada 1200 motorcycle, built during model years 2010-2014.

A hose inside the sheath of the throttle opening Bowden cable may get stuck inside the throttle control, resulting in stiffening or locking of the throttle control assembly.

The relevant manufacturers 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.
