Corsa recall

Vauxhall is recalling 355,000 Corsa three and 5-door models built between 2004 and 2006 (C generation) and Combo van and Tigra models built between 2004 and 2008 to replace the ABS brake control unit.

The new D generation Corsa 3 and 5-door models introduced in 2006 are not affected.

Earlier this year Vauxhall completed an investigation into thermal incidents involving the previous generation Corsa and its derivatives.

These investigations confirmed that vehicles that had previously undergone a recall rectification of the engine wiring harness have an extremely low risk of a fire.

Upon further technical evaluation and additional testing it was determined that new components were required, including an ABS control unit and cover assembly.

These new components are now available and Vauxhall is launching a recall.

Vauxhall is contacting the registered owners by letter recognising that a recall of this size must be completed in phases to ensure proper care of its customers, who are being advised to continue using their vehicles in the normal manner.

Vauxhall asks drivers to please wait for their recall letter which will request that they contact their retailer to make an appointment.

Corsa drivers who have any concerns about their car or the recall plan should call Vauxhall customer service on 0845 090 2044 or via email at vauxhall.customerassistance@uk.gm.com.
