Manufacturer urges owners of Adam and Corsa models registered since February 2014 to get their cars inspected for a possible incorrect part

Vauxhall has discovered that several thousand Adam, Corsa and Corsavan models registered since February 2014 could have been fitted with an incorrect steering system part.

The manufacturer has recommended owners of cars registered since that date to refrain from driving their cars until they have been inspected by an expert. Previously it was believed that some 3000 cars, built after May 2014, were affected.

Vauxhall explained that during routine quality control at the vehicle manufacturing plant in Germany it became aware that a number of the cars had been manufactured with a steering system part that does not meet its specification. Further investigation has since revealed that more cars have been affected than initially thought.

Owners can find out if their vehicle is affected by going to the Vauxhall website and clicking on the ‘Urgent Safety Check for Adam and Corsa’ button.

Alternatively customers can call the Vauxhall Customer Assistance Centre for advice on 0800 026 0034 between 0900 and 1900hrs on weekdays, or until 1700 on weekends. If the car is identified as affected by Vauxhall then the owner will also be contacted directly.

Vauxhall added that it is not aware of any accident or injury related to this issue.

Our Verdict

Vauxhall Adam

Is the Vauxhall Adam supermini special enough to provide an answer to the Fiat 500 and Mini, or merely an exercise in style and marketing?
