Wednesday 25th April at 8PM. Vauxhall was featured on this episode of Watchdog and in case you missed it we are posting some info here. The problem is that new Vauxhall models are catching fire without warning due to an electrical fault. It is mostly the new Corsa C range with some Tigra B and Combo C vans also affected (Reg Plates Starting 53, 54 & 55).
This is obviously quite a worrying fault, especially if you have a garage. Vauxhall was forced to recall around 200,000 cars because of the issue of water getting into the antilock brake system which can cause a short circuit and as some Vauxhall owners have found a rather nasty fire.
Vauxhall are obviously working hard to fix the problem, this guide is just to make you aware of the issue and to get it resolved if you havent already.
Further information can be found on the Watchdog website, Vauxhall website, VOSA Vehicle Recall website and also on our own including email addresses and contact phone numbers for assistance. Sorry but we cant link directly to the sites within and eBay guide.
If you have found this guide helpful and would like to help others to be aware then please vote YES.
Thanks for reading.
