Skoda Fabia and Roomster recall resolution
Whenever we have seen carmakers issue recalls for their models in the past, some of them drag their heals, such as Chrysler with their Jeep model.
Ok, so we know that this was not a rather large recall, but it was still refreshing to see Skoda react quickly and send out recall notices to customers with affected models. The models in question were those built between 2010 and 2014 and came with the 1.2-litre TDI engine.
The cause of the problem was an issue with their fuel filter cover, which in some circumstances could crack due to vibrations being transmitted to it.
Even to this day and after the final recall was fixed there were no fuel leaks or injuries, and so we ask other car manufacturers to take note and act as swiftly. Having said that, we guess when you are talking several hundred thousand or millions, it’s a completely different story.
