Recalls KIA, Hyundai, Porsche, Toyota and BMW


We are beginning to close the week and are re-publishing the calls for review from the European Commission, a list that, as you may already know, comes out every week in order to warn the population and consumers of possible serious defects in their vehicles.

If your model is in the following list, you should expand information on the CE website, providing the frame number and manufacturing dates to determine if your specific unit is affected.

Brand: HYUNDAI

Name: Genesis

Production dates: 09.06.2013 – 09.03.2020

Company recall code: 11D054

Risk type: Fire

A short circuit may occur in the housing of the hydraulic electronic control unit (HECU). This could cause a fire in the engine compartment.

Brand: PORSCHE

Name: Macan (S. GTS. Turbo)

Production dates: 7.11.2013 – 27.3.2018

Company recall code: ALA2

Risk type: Fire

Adverse tolerances combined with external force can cause the lower section of the hood to come into contact with the fuel inlet connector. As a result, damage to the fuel inlet connector can occur and cause fuel leakage, increasing the risk of fire.

Company recall code: 211069

Brand: BMW

Name: Series 3

Production dates: 23.10.1997 – 03.07.2000

Company recall code: 0032200300

Risk type: Injuries

The NADI-type airbag may have an improper seal that could allow moisture to enter the propellant. If the propellant dries out afterwards, it could lead to a decrease in density, resulting in too high a burn rate. Therefore, the airbag cannot deploy as designed and provide less protection, increasing the risk of injury.

Brand: TOYOTA

Name: Prius, Prius PHEV

Production dates: 31.05.2021 – 02.08.2021

Company recall code: 21SMD-076

Risk type: Injuries

Due to improper programming, the hybrid vehicle’s electronic control unit (ECU) may incorrectly determine the position of the transmission selector lever which could cause the hybrid system to shut down. This could lead to a loss of power, increasing the risk of an accident.
