Peugeot Australia has issued a recall for the 2018 model-year 3008 SUV, due to a child-seat anchor point being incorrectly fitted to the front passenger seat.

Just like the notice for the Citroen C3 earlier this week, Australian laws do not allow the front airbag to be switched off, which means a child seat can't be fitted in the front.

According to Peugeot, a top-tether child seat anchor point has been fitted to the passenger seat when it shouldn't have been.

"If a child seat is installed into the front passenger seat without the airbag system being deactivated, there is a risk of serious injury to the child," the company says in its recall notice.

There are 60 units affected, available for sale from 1 September 2018 through 30 September 2019 – a VIN list is available here.

Owners of the recalled 3008 models will be contacted by Peugeot Australia, and advised to arrange an appointment with their preferred dealer to have the top-tether anchor point removed from the front passenger seat.
