Australian recall roundup: Holden VF Commodore and Holden WN Caprice image

Australia’s Holden car company has recently announced a recall for the VF Commodore and for the WN Caprice because of an incomplete weld on the front seat hook bracket assembly.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC), there are a total of 25,055 units of the Holden VF Commodore and the Holden WN Caprice units which will be affected by this recall and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the incomplete weld solved.

“A condition has been identified where certain VF Commodore and WN Caprice vehicles may have been built with an incomplete weld on the front seat hook bracket assembly. In an accident, if the weld is incomplete, the seat hook may separate from the seat track increasing the risk of occupant injury”, says the company in its press release.

The affected vehicles have been produced between the 7th of February, 2013, and the 22nd of May, 2014. The carmaker says that it’s not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this problem. The recall is expected to begin soon and the company’s dealerships will be inspecting the vehicles and make the necessary repairs free of charge. For any extra details on the subject, owners of the above mentioned models should contact their local Holden dealer.
