Zafira Recall
Vauxhall are in the process of issuing letters to thousands of Zafira B owners again for a 2nd recall to 'improve the overall robustness of the system'

Vauxhall Zafira B 2nd Recall

You may recall my post written in November last year (2015) 'Vauxhall Zafira B's Catching Fire! Has yours been recalled?' where I talked about our experience of our Zafira being recalled in for an assessment. 
This 1st recall was to 'bring the vehicle back to original condition'

Vauxhall have now initiated a 2nd recall programme where Zafira B owners will be written to again to book in for further repairs to improve the overall robustness of the system.

So what are they doing this time?

This time they will be replacing the current soldered fuse resistor with a wax fuse resistor, to reduce the opportunity for manipulation.
You will also be treated to a new blower motor and a new moulding at the base of the windscreen to address the water ingress issue. 
These letters are expected to be sent out in stages through out  August 2016.

I didn't have the 1st recall done!

If you have yet to have the 1st recall repairs done then you can contact your local Vauxhall dealer to arrange for this to be done still to return your car back to its 'original condition'. The 2nd recall will then apparently 'improve' the condition of the car and reduce the risk of it catching fire.

I'm looking forward to hopefully being given a brand new Tourer as a courtesy car like we did last time!...
a girl can dream :)

Vauxhall are recommending you only use your blower on 0 or 4 until the repairs are done :/ With having the air con on I don't like being blasted on speed 4 so we have been using ours on 1 and taking the risk.
You can read more on their Official Site.

Do you own a Zafira B Model?
Did you have the 1st recall repairs?
What family car would you recommend for 3 kids?
