Vehicle Safety Recalls

Vehicle manufacturers take safety very seriously with all companies having robust procedures to undertake recalls if a safety related fault is found in a vehicle model. As the official representatives of a vehicle marque, MIA members carry out safety related recall campaigns which involve:

  1. Identifying the vehicles in which the fault may occur (note that with the vast majority of safety recall campaigns actual failure rates are extremely low);
  2. with the help of NZTA, getting the updated records of the registered owners; and
  3. contacting these vehicle owners to have the vehicle inspected and repaired (all free of charge) at the nearest franchise dealership.

In most cases, cycling the ignition key or engine start / stop switch will reinstate the power steering assistance. At all times mechanical steering is maintained. Turning the steering wheel will still turn the road wheels. Holden will commence repair of affected vehicles once replacement parts are available. We expect to commence repair of affected vehicles in July 2019.
