Did you buy an Opel this year? You've been told not to drive it

New Corsas, Adams or Corsavans registered since February have been recalled.

IF YOU BOUGHT an Opel Corsa or Adam since February 2014 then the manufacturer is advising you not to drive it.

Following on-site investigations at a supplier, Opel is now expanding its safety check for Corsa and ADAM vehicles back to those registered since February 2014.


In September they recalled vehicles registered since May 2014. The company first became aware of the condition during routine quality controls at the vehicle production plant.

Opel says these additional vehicles may also have been manufactured with the steering system part that did not meet specification and said the cars should not be driven prior to inspection.

Owners are being asked to check their Vehicle Identification Number to see if it matches the list of affected vehicles Opel have put on their website.

If you have concerns about your vehicle, customers are urged to get in touch with their dealership (details available here) or by contacting the AA after hours on 1800 327 327.

However, if your car is affected, don’t worry, as you will also be automatically contacted by Opel.
