Latest recall programmes for electronics fixes

Renault, PSA and Fiat are all recalling vehicles to fix electronics problems which also affect pre-launch Citroen C2s

Having recently recalled 110,000 Laguna models for adjustment of the car's petrol injection system, a further recall involves fixing a leak in the system controlling the model's ABS and ESP system. Some cars will be involved in both recalls. Something over 22,000 Lagunas in the UK built between 18 July 2001 and 15 May 2002 will be affected. Renault has confirmed that no instances of brake failure have been recorded.

- Another recall affects nearly 23,000 MPVs produced at the joint-venture Sevel plant of PSA and Fiat. PSA Peugeot Citroen confirmed a French media report last week that an electronics fault that causes the vehicles' side sliding doors to open on the move affects in total 13,000 Peugeot 807s, 7,000 Citroen C8s, 2,215 Lancia Phedras and a much lower number, 572, of Fiat Ulysse models.

Citroen meanwhile has confirmed that some 5,000 examples of its new C2 supermini require re-programming of the ABS control system – most of the vehicles involved have yet to be delivered, however. As with the Laguna's ABS/ESP control ujnit problem, Citroen has confirmed the fault does not affect stopping distances.
