VE/VF Holden cars recalled

Another possible fault has been identified in the factory fitted LPG systems on Holden cars built over a more than four-year period.

The latest recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and affects VE/WM & VF/WN Holden Commodore Sedan, Ute, Wagon, Caprice cars – with LPG engines.

It comes after the LPG-powered Holden cars were also recalled in 2013 over a diaphragm issue, and in 2014 when a flow valve issue was identified, along with a possible issue with a fuel hose.

The affected cars were built between the 10th of February 2011 and the 9th of September 2015 and carry VIN numbers between 6G1EK4E40CL600020 and 6G1NP5E4XFL147410.

What are the defects?

If a LPG vaporizer has been serviced or replaced there may be a loose electrical ground connection.

This may cause an electrical arc in the LPG fuel feed hose.

What are the hazards?

The recall notice advises that if the defect occurs there is a risk of a fuel hose leak or fire, which may pose a rise of injury to the vehicle occupants and other road users.

What should consumers do?

Affected Holden customers are invited to contact either Holden Customer Care by phoning 1800 632 826, or their nearest Holden Dealer to arrange vehicle inspection and repair.

Dealer contact details can be found by visiting the GM Holden website.
