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.

It is possible for the fuel quick connect material to soften at these elevated temperatures, which could potentially result in a fuel leak and, in the presence of an ignition source, increases the risk of a vehicle fire.

Owners of vehicles affected by this Recall Action are to be notified in writing of the possible safety related condition identified and advised that our Service Manager will contact them as soon as the required repair parts are available to make arrangements to carry out the necessary remedial action with the minimum of inconvenience.
