Recall roundup: Citroen C4 Picasso in Australia for fire risk image

The French based automaker Citroen has recently announced a recall for the C4 Picasso in Australia because of the starter motor harness which can lead to a fire.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission’s, or simply ACCC, a total of 1,040 units of the Citroen C4 Picasso will be affected by this recall and owners of the model will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the starter motor harness fixed. The ACCC says that the Citroen C4 vehicles affected by the recall have been produced between 2008 and 2012 and are equipped with the 2.0 liter diesel engine.

“On affected vehicles, there may be some partial long term wear due to rubbing of the starter motor harness. This could lead to an electrical fault, posing a potential fire hazard” as the ACCC is saying in its recalls summary of the problem.

Owners of the affected Citroen C4 Picasso are advised to contact their local Citroen dealership and arrange a recall inspection and repair which will be conducted free of charge. The company’s Australian distributor, Edward Rowe, said that this is a global recall but says that no reports of accidents or injuries have been related to this issue.
