  1. New Leaf Safety Recall

    Nissan Leaf40
    I have a New Leaf 40kwh registered in September 2018. I've just received a recall notice from Nissan asking me to bring the car to a Nissan dealer to have a software update to rectify a potential safety issue with the Automatic Electronic Breaking System. That's all fine but in the same letter...
  2. Potential recall based on tiny cadmium component

    Volkswagen Passat GTE
    I saw mention on the Internet the other day about a potential recall on all VW GTE and e- models over a tiny amount of cadmium currently contained in the charger unit. Apparently ALL production of GTE and e- models has been stopped until the matter can be resolved and there is a strong...
  3. Recall for passenger airbag fault in i-Miev

    General Mitsubishi EV Discussion
    FYI - received a recall letter for a fault with the passenger airbag yesterday for our 2011 i-Miev. 'Activation may produce shrapnel which may cause injury'. Assume this affects ions and c-zeros as well?
  4. Leaf 2 Production Stop? #Rapidgate

    Nissan Leaf40
    On Twitter there are rumours that Sunderland Production has halted due to Rapidgate investigations? Do we have any further information that this is true? What are the chances that they will actually change some of the BOM(Bill of Materials) in future builds and then potentially have a recall...

    Tesla Model X
    The DVSA (Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency) have issued a recall notice for the Model X: DVSA reference number R/2017/191 Make and model TESLA: Model X Issue Passenger airbag will not deploy That seems to be a definite 'will not deploy' rather than a 'may not' Has anyone been affected or...

  7. TCU recall, finally

    Renault ZOE
    Today I got a letter from Renault recalling the car for a TCU software update. Saw others on the Dutch forum chipping in too. Seems like a long overdue issue. Mine has been performing reasonably, though there is no connection when the car is on my driveway. No cell phone problems there really...
  8. 93b7 recall

    Volkswagen Golf GTE
    Hi guys, Just got my car back from a service. Everything seems to be fine, but I noticed something interesting: "93B7 Recall: Retrofit protective ring against freezing" The parts listed are sticker x 1 and seal x 2. There is a date listed against the recall 2017-04-03. Any ideas what's that?
  9. EVSE recall?

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    I had to have the 12V battery replaced in my 30 kWh Tekna (after less than a year, so it should be a warranty item, yet my dealer asked for a deposit). When I brought the car to them, they told me there was a recall for the EVSE cable, but they also said they could not replace it right away...
  10. DRLs and automatic headlights

    General GM EV Discussion
    Okay, I know this has been mentioned before and apologies but I can't find it doing a search so I can only think it was tacked on to recalls or reworks somewhere. I assume my DRLs were working first. Drove under a bridge which caused the headlights to come on, out the other side and the...
  11. 2016 Leaf Recall??

    Nissan LEAF24 & LEAF30
    In the process of buying a brand new leaf. Was supposed to take delivery last week but it has been recalled for a software update before they could complete the deal. Anyone know anything about this recall, I haven't found any information on the web and the dealers aren't saying much.
