220,000 Vauxhall Zafira models to be recalled

Earlier last month, it was reported that Vauxhall Zafira models were catching fire and now, Vauxhall are to recall 220,00 cars. Only models made between the years 2005-2014, with or without air conditioning are involved in the recall.

Owners will be notified if their car is included in the recall from the 12th November and it has been reported that inspections of each car will take from 30 to 60 minutes.

Vauxhall is to conduct an investigation into the heating and ventilation system after it was found that models were made with blower motor resistors with non-genuine parts and improper repairs to thermal fuses.

On the matter, Vauxhall have stated "Analysis is still ongoing to get to the root cause. We need to analyse a significant number of vehicles in order that a robust fix can be generated based on facts."

It’s been reported that around 100 cars have been believed to have caught fire. After complaints were filed, Vauxhall conducted an internal investigation and found around 20 models that have been affected.

A spokesman for Vauxhall has stated "While the number of incidents is very low in proportion to the number of vehicles on the road, we take this issue very seriously and will take further action.

"The safety of our customers is the number one priority. Our investigations have found that a number of incidents have occurred due to previous repairs being performed improperly or using certain non-genuine parts."
