Last week, the news reported that many Vauxhall Zafira (Model B) cars were suddenly bursting into flames. Vauxhall have started a recall in order to identify the problem more closely and rectify it, however, their advice in the meantime is do not use the heater or air conditioning. This is not the reassuring advice one would expect to receive from a car company, especially as we are about to go into Winter.
While investigations are ongoing, we believe that owners should not be subjected to such a risk. We intend to write to Vauxhall to identify whether the faulty component is being used in any other of their models.
If you own a Vauxhall Zafira B model (made between 2005 and 2014) and would like to seek some further advice then do please contact out litigation team.
