Vauxhall warns of steering problem

Car company Vauxhall has warned owners of around 3,000 vehicles not to drive them because of  a steering problem.

Vauxhall said that around 3,000 Adam and Corsa/Corsavan models registered since May 2014 had been fitted with a part in the steering system that does not meet the company’s specification.

Vauxhall said:

“As a precaution, these vehicles should not be driven prior to inspection.

“Vauxhall puts the safety and convenience of its customers first and as this condition concerns their safety, the company is taking immediate action.

“From tomorrow (Saturday), owners will be able to find out if their vehicle is affected by going to the Vauxhall website homepage (www.vauxhall.co.uk) and clicking on the ‘Safety Check for ADAM and Corsa’ button for further information.

“Alternatively customers can call the Vauxhall customer assistance centre for advice on 0800 026 0034 between 9am and 5.30pm.”

Vauxhall said it had been made aware of the condition during routine quality control checks at the vehicle manufacturing plants – one in Germany and one in Spain. It added it was not aware of any accident or injury related to the issue.
