Recalls 08/2022: Opel, Mercedes-AMG and Toyota


We are approaching the weekend and with it come the calls for review by the European Commission. As you know, although they are not the only ones that are carried out – there are manufacturers who do them on their own for minor things – they are important because they are serious problems that can affect the safety of drivers and other road users. .

The most relevant of our protagonists today is Toyota’s star commercial. The Proace takes the cake with two separate recalls. On the other hand, we are struck by the presence of the powerful Mercedes AMG GT, which sneaks into our list with a risk of injury. Let’s see what more surprises the list of calls for European review holds for us today.
