another recall yet again

Post by mrmacro » Mon Jun 11, 2018 12:16 pm

had a call from my local dealer and have had to take the car in again for another recall, not that i am really complaining as such as i would rather it be safe

the fault code is GEX GFX
get the feeling this is two separate codes but cant really find any info as to what the recall is for exactly, the garage said the catalytic convertor but would be nice to see this somewhere explained

Just had mine updated for 3 recalls, supposedly the adblue cap is faulty, and it can cause the adblue to corrode the catalytic converter, also needed a new cruise control module...

thanks for that, I didn't get any paperwork After the work was completed for my recall to say what was done but that sounds about right as to what was explained

What! I've had one (for the bonnet catch), and that hadn't failed - it was a precaution... On my last car (Rover 75 2.5 Conn, also bought new) I had 3 recalls in the first two years and experienced no failures in 16 years.

A recall may be inconvenient (although you generally return the car for the work at YOUR convenience, not the dealers'), but it's for the owners' benefit - and I don'y know any car brands/models that haven't had at least one.
