Related French manufacturers Citroen and Peugeot are recalling vehicles from their current-generation C4 Picasso MPV and ‘T9’ 308 hatchback lines over concerns the doors may not close properly or unexpectedly open.
The 21 affected Citroen C4 Picassos and 90 Peugeot 308s are reported to possibly have faulty door locks as a result of a manufacturing issue.
Citroen and Peugeot say that the internal mechanism could potentially cause one or more locks to jam, which could prevent the vehicle’s doors from closing, or to unlock and open unexpectedly.
If the vehicle’s door locks fail it could increase the risk of injury to the occupants or a third party.
