Owners of the following vehicles are advised to contact the manufacturer to arrange for the problem to be fixed or replaced.

If your vehicle is recalled for a safety reason, you’ll usually be sent a letter by the manufacturer telling you why it’s being recalled, what you need to do next and who you should contact.

However, you won’t get a letter if the manufacturer doesn’t have your contact details.

You won’t usually have to pay for any repairs or parts under a safety recall.
