Safety Notice December 2020

Post by SimonBee » Thu Dec 31, 2020 2:26 pm

Has anyone else received a safety notice about the abs software, and advising the timing belt interval is now 100,000 km?

Mine arrived today (in French) was just wondering what the English version says. Sorry about the poor pic.

Thanks, Jacques. Bad news for owners of a 1.2 Puretech engine.

If we enter our reg on the DVLA website it says there are no current recalls for the vehicle.

Does this maybe mean that the recall hasn't been issued for UK vehicles yet?

Cheers
Mike

My car has the 1.2 PureTech 110 engine and is scheduled for an oil change tomorrow. I'll be asking the local dealer about this recall and share the info here if I get any. It's definitely not good news though... mine is still under warranty for 1 more year (extended warranty) but I wonder if I can get the timing belt inspected and potentially replaced right now - hopefully for free if there are issues with it already, but I'm willing to pay for it as well if necessary. 67 000 km done so far, it should be still early for the timing belt even with the revised interval, but who knows :(

Went to the nearest dealership today (it's next to the supermarket, so two birds with one stone) and have booked the car in for next Wednesday. A courtesy car has been reserved just in case (we have 98,000km on the clock). The dealer was aware and there was no hassle.

I'll post back when I know more

Took the Cactus in to the authorised dealer this morning. Was a painless transaction that took about an hour. Software reprogrammed and at the same time they checked the timing belt. It's ok, but the mechanic said it's important to change it at 100,000 km. That's only 3,000km away, but we're hoping it will be covered by our warrantee. We brought the car from a Citroen dealer in October, with 12 month cover.
