Want to learn more about Vauxhall problems?
Read our short guide with information on the most popular models.
The Astra has been a mainstay in the Vauxhall range for many years. Early 90s Astra-F models would suffer from windscreen wiper issues, after investigation Vauxhall found the issue to be due to the screw fixing the earth cable coming loose over time. It would sometimes stop the wipers from working. An easy fix was made by replacing the earth fixing screw with an improved version. [R/1993/019] Much later, Astra-J models suffered from a risk of fire if the radiator cooling fan was blocked somehow. A fire might ensue if the block caused the fan to short circuit. A recall was launched for affected models in 2015 during which a different wiring harness would be fitted. [R/2014/189 / Vauxhall Ref. 14-c-073]
The Vauxhall Zafira was introduced as the company's people carrier in the 1990s. Over the years there have been a number of recalls. Some early models built from the beginning of 2000 until the end of 2001 would suffer from fuel leaks brought on by a faulty fuel pipe. Vauxhall acted by offering a replacement pipe for affected cars. [R/2000/133 / Vauxhall Ref. 00-C-42]
The Vauxhall Corsa is the company's supermini that has been around for many years. Some Corsas built between 1991 and 1995 suffered from static electricity in the fuel filler neck that would build up during refuelling. In others it was established that the airbag system on some cars would not deploy due to an issue with a connector plug. The issues also appeared in other models like the Astra and Cavalier, so Vauxhall launched a large inclusive recall campaign in March 1995 to resolve the problems. [R/1995/012]
The Vauxhall Movano is the company's big van. Early models were found to have an issue with van's brake servo valve, which would lead to reduced brake servo capacity. Vauxhall's solution was to recall affected vans and fit a new one. [R/2000/002 / Vauxhall Ref. 00-C-01] Later on it was found that certain Movano B vans could have damage to rear wheel bearings due to a production issue. Affected Movanos were fitted with new wheel bearing to prevent the old wheel bearings from failing. [R/2011/103]
The Vauxhall Agila was introduced in the 2000s and has since been a mainstay in the Vauxhall range. Earlier Agila A models built between June 2003 and April 2007 were found to suffer from corrosion in the fuel tank that could lead to leaks. As the issue was down to delamination of paint on the sheet metal of the tank Vauxhall launched a recall in 2011 to check the problem, apply wax or replace the whole tank. [R/2011/089 / Vauxhall 11_C-015]
In 2008 a recall campaign was launched by Vauxhall for the Signum under the banner of 'continuous improvement', the company indicated that it had received a number of complaints noting the handbrake was insufficient. On affected models a new mechanism was fitted that would limit the occurrence of a partial handbrake release.
