Vauxhall will recall some Zafiras in UK on fire risk

The potential fire risk affects Vauxhall Zafiras built between 2005 and 2014.
General Motors’ Vauxhall unit will recall about 235,000 Zafira minivans for repair in the UK to prevent a possible risk of fire caused by a soldered fuse resistor in the vehicles.

The models will be recalled to replace a soldered fuse resistor with a wax fuse resistor, Vauxhall said in a statement today.

Vauxhall said the remedial action was agreed upon with the UK’s Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency.

The decision follows an initial recall of right-hand-drive Zafiras last year to correct what the automaker described as “improper repair of the blower motor resistor and its thermal fuse” which is designed to protect the blower motor system.

The recall covered minivans built between 2005 and 2014 and followed reports of some vehicle fires.
