recall

  1. Alfa Stelvio
    Got mine Friday morning. Ref: Alfa Romeo Recal/update 8242. Incorrect Fuel Level Reading on Instrument Panel. Quite surprised, as it says they are worried (it is a safety issue apparently) that the car could report more fuel than is actually in the tank. In the last 8k miles, I'd say mine is...
  2. Alfa Giulia
    From USA forum, Macgeek : Published today, for incorrect fuel level readings in specific conditions. The specific conditions include being parked on a grade of more than 10 degrees, staying in that position for a long enough period of time (approx. 30 minutes), and having a tank filled between...

    Does anyone know what the campaing nr 8238 is about? Have to go to my dealer for this software update but did not receive any further information.

    https://www.theregister.co.uk/2019/03/02/subaru_suvs_overwhelmed_by_aromas/ This makes absolutely no sense to me. I don't doubt that there is a problem and it needs to be recalled, but I have have serious qualms that the cause is what the company says it is.

    Just been called by Piccadilly to advise that recall is now due... But they're booked up for a month, as only one guy can do the work...? Nice!

    How many of you have now had the updates, and how many are experiencing issues? A person I know had their updates done a couple of weeks ago and since then has suffered fairly severe shuddering of the engine under load around 2000-2500rpm. He's had a couple of CELs too. My car is due to go...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    Anyone else with a newer G get a letter this week from Alfa Romeo urging you to make an appointment to have a new software update for engine management. Looks like it is for 1.6 multijet diesel euro 6 engines only, which puzzles me as the letter says my car is effected, but I have a 2 litre...
  10. Alfa MiTo
    Hi Has anyone experienced the same effect after the Mito 850cc had a recall for assistance with cold starting. It used to splutter until a poke on the accelerate when starting. Nothing too bad, unless you started from outside the car and then it might stall. Anyway back to the real part of...

    I've just curious to see if anyone has received a recall for their tct gearbox. Please see the picture.

    Had this recall notice today; anyone else had it? Mine is going in a week Wednesday so will find out more then!
  15. Alfa MiTo
    Hello, I have recently purchased a 1.4 Mito 155, 09 plate. The car has no receipt of a timing/cambelt chain change. However, the previous owner told me it was changed when it was recalled for an engine problem and was changed 'about 3 years ago'. Can anyone confirm if a lot of mitos were getting...

    Hi,anyone else had a letter for a recall on their G ????Question is,should I take her to Mango's or Blackburn Motor Village as both are of equal distance from home.:thinking:

    4Cs are being recalled in Europe and will probably rolled out to SA pretty soon. New gearbox and engine mapping and cruise control update. And a new set of front shock absorbers. This is to address the massive tram lining issues. Cant wait to try a before and after.
  19. 4C & 4C Spider
    I received a recall letter today all the way from Turin. It's like no other recall letter I have ever received from any other car manufacturer. It seems 4C owners are 'special' customers after all! I'll try to post a copy.
  20. Alfa Giulietta
    got a notification in the mailbox yesterday that there was a recorded mail for me. Figured I forgot to make a payment or so, but it was a letter from FCA. 2.0 JTDM with TCT apparently could damage the wiring loom for the TCT by rubbing against the DPF. Must be pretty serious as it's recorded...
