General Motors has issued a recall for the 2018-2019 model year Holden Commodore ZB sedan due to fuel leak concerns.
The problem: according to a filing from the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, a hose clip on affected vehicles’ fuel hose bundle may rub on the fuel pump return hose, which could lead to wear/damage and cause a fuel leak.
The hazards: if a fuel leak occurs, there is a potential risk of fire, as the fuel may leak down onto the exhaust or another hot surface. The ACCC says that if this happened, “it would pose a risk of injury to vehicle occupants, bystanders and/or damage property.”
Affected components: fuel hose bundle clip and fuel pump return hose.
Affected vehicles: only 2018-2019 Holden Commodore ZB vehicles fitted with the available 2.0L diesel four-cylinder engine are affected by this recall.
Number of affected vehicles: only 365 vehicles are wrapped up in this recall.
The fix: Holden dealers will inspect the hose and hose clip and replace any damaged parts. The ACCC filing did not indicate if the fuel hose and/or hose clip would be redesigned or relocated to prevent further wear and tear.
Owners should: Holden says it will contact all affected owners to notify them of required action, at which point they will be instructed to contact their nearest Holden dealership to arrange an inspection and repair of their Commodore.
