Recall roundup: Holden VF Commodore and WN Caprice in Australia image

The Australian based automaker Holden has recently announced a second recall for the VF Commodore and WN Caprice, on its local auto market, because of a problem with the windscreen wipers.

According to the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission, there are a total of 27,074 vehicles affected in total and their owners will have to take a trip back to the dealers in order to get the problem with the windscreen wipers fixed. The ACCC says that the windscreen wipers may not work and because of the reduced visibility there is an increased accident chance.

“If the defect occurs, the windscreen wipers may not work and visibility may be reduced, potentially posing an accident hazard to the driver and other road users”, said the ACCC in its official press release.

Owners of the Holden VF Commodore and the WN Caprice will be notified by the recall by the car manufacturer and the company’s dealers will be inspecting the vehicles and making the necessary repairs / replacements free of charge. The models affected have been produced between the 27th of February, 2013, and the 31st of October, 2013. The fix will take approximately one hour and for any questions owners might have, they can contact their local Holden representative.
