Proving Australia isn’t safe from General Motors recall fiasco either, Holden has recalled the Commodore LPG sedan for a problem involving its LPG fuel system.
The problem: Holden says certain Commodore and Caprice sedans have a faulty LPG fuel system which may cut out suddenly. If the system cuts out this may pose “an accident hazard to the driver and other road users,” according to the Australian government’s Product Safety Recalls group. A second, separate recall for the LPG system has also been put out as it may leak and “pose a fire hazard,” though this is unlikely, Holden says.
Number of vehicles affected: The two recalls cover 3,472 Commodore and Caprice sedans built between February 2011 and April 2014.
The fix: Holden will contact owners of affected vehicles and inspect and repair the LPG systems free of charge. GM says no accidents or injuries as a result of the flaw have been reported.
Contacts: Owners of affected Commodores or Caprices may call Holden’s Customer Care line at 1-800-033-349.
