Recalls Mazda, SEAT, BMW, Mercedes and Audi


We are ending the week and of course, the year and that is why the brands and the European Commission are rushing to announce the last recalls of the year that in this case affect several important models in the European market.

As you may already know, the fact that your model is on this list does not necessarily imply that your specific unit is affected and, as you can see, the recalls affect specific dates of specific models manufactured even in specific factories.

We are surprised by the fact that Mazda calls for revision to models as old as those that appear in the list, but it is that the call for revision of these models has to do with the airbags of Takata.
