Peugeot, Audi, Mercedes-Benz and Chevrolet recalls


The calls for review from the European Commission arrive again and although they are not the only ones that are made – there are manufacturers that do them on their own for minor things -, they are important because they are serious problems that can affect safety drivers and other road users.

We see how there are brands that continue to make recalls for Takata airbags and we have also seen how two manufacturers with models with very different approaches have problems in the seats.

Chevrolet calls Bolt customers about battery fire problems.
