The first fault which could affect about 25,000 306s is that a pinch bolt in the steering rack has not been tightened properly. A second is a potential leak in the rear brake pipe which could affect 2,000 cars. A Peugeot spokesman said: 'The driver is unlikely to notice any defect with the steering unless on full lock when the front suspension could come loose, which is potentially dangerous.'
The faults take about two-and-a-half hours to rectify. Fleets are advised to contact their local dealer.
