Citroen Dispatch, Peugeot Expert recalled

Peugeot Citroen Australia has issued a recall for the Citroen Dispatch and Peugeot Expert vans over concerns the middle seatbelt could be faulty. The French automotive group reports: "The front central passenger seat belt could unclip from the buckle when braking or avoiding obstacles". "If the front central passenger buckle unclips, the seat belt would not secure the passenger in the event of sudden braking or an accident, and there is a risk of serious injury."
