I've had 2 missed calls from vauxhall after sales, they left a voice mail asking for me to call them back.

Also have checked the app and now have a recall - I had my 2nd service a week ago. Sounds like this is about the breaks!!

Just checked and seen the recall. my car was in yesterday for it's 3rd service, guess it's another visit to the garage lol. Glad to see a recall for one of the issues I've seen reported on this site.

I'm a bit confused, just got my car back from the dealer yesterday for the clutch issue.
They mentionned a recall involving an ECU flash that they also did when they changed the clutch slave cylinder, didn't mention anything about brakes.
But now when I look at the MyVauxhall app it says there is a recall... Should I bring it back in?

While mine was in today the dealers only found out about it weather it’s just diesel or the whole range the fella from europ car was on the way other a Astra diesel and was told to go back and change the car and brought us a Astra 1.4t he said across the Ulk they have a couple of thousand Vauxhall’s which could be affected could on be 16diesel but that engine and gearbox is used across the range. Doesn’t sound good just be careful mine over the past couple of months the brake pedal wen in traffic did go soft a couple of times

Does this only affect cars with the steering wheel on the right side of the car or cars manufactured in a specific time interval ?

I just installed the app on my phone and it says that there are no active recalls for my 2016 Astra 1.6 diesel. My car is left steering wheel as i am in scandinavia
