Peugeot Has 6667 British 107s Affected by Toyota Safety Recall
The guys over at carsuk.net talked to Peugeot UK who tried to put things straight and clarify the matter.
"I have reviewed your comments with our Customer Care Manager and they are going to re-brief all the Call Centre staff regarding the recall information. All staff have already been briefed with as much available information as we currently have and as new information is made available this is automatically communicated to them," Peugeot told the aforementioned source.
Furthermore, Peugeot explained that the company will soon update its website with a VIN checker to allow owners to find out whether their car is affected or not.
"We have only 6667 107s affected by the recall. The only models affected are Peugeot 107 Models manufactured between January 2005 and August 2009 that have a semi-automatic gearbox (2-Tronic)or have the ESP option with a manual gearbox. All other 107 models are NOT affected, as they do not use an electronic accelerator pedal, but a conventional accelerator pedal and a throttle cable."
