Build Date:
Numbers: 5
Defect: The power steering box housing may not be machined to the correct specification. This could cause an over pressurisation of bellows due to the insecurity of a snap ring and result in a sudden loss of hydraulic pressure. Oil will then be sprayed onto hot engine components and may ignite.
Action: Affected vehicles will be recalled to have the steering box replaced.

Description: BRAKES MAY FAIL
Build Date: 22 May to 1 June 2009
Numbers: 53
Defect: It has been identified that during the manufacturing process, cracks may have formed in the area of the brake disc body. Subsequent surface treatment means that any such crack will not be detectable at a later date. Should a crack have formed, this may cause the brake disc to fail whilst the vehicle is in motion causing the affected brake to become inoperative.
Action: Recalled vehicles will have the rear axle brake discs checked for the affected production date. The brake discs will be checked if necessary.
Launch Date: 21 July 2009
