All of the cars involved in the recall were sold between the 2nd of November 2015 and the 29th of April 2017.

The recall notice advises that on affected vehicles, the striker wire support on the bonnet lining may not be sufficiently secure.

This may allow the bonnet to open while the vehicle is in motion.

What are the hazards?

If the bonnet opens while the vehicle is in use it may obstruct the drivers vision, posing an accident risk to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should owners do?

Citroen Australia will contact all known owners by mail and advise them to present their vehicle to their preferred Authorised Citroen dealer to have the bonnet striker checked and if necessary have a stiffener wire fitted.
