Let’s get one thing out of the way early – taking care of your car’s recall notice is an easy thing to let slide.
Despite the urgency of the manufacturers and their sincere warnings about all the awful things that can go wrong if you ignore it, we’re all guilty of occasionally letting a recall service fall down the to-do list.
Hot tip: Don’t let that happen. Recalls are issued for a reason and not fulfilling them could see drivers and passengers injured or killed.
UPDATE, 22/12/2020: This article will continually be updated with details of new recalls as they are issued.
Typically, manufacturers will notify those affected by the recall via mail, and offer to perform the recall free of charge at your closest dealer or service centre.
With Victoria in lockdown, one of the few reasons mechanics and service centres are permitted to stay open is to carry out critical repairs, including emergency recalls
