  • ABS Recall?

    My Dad got a phone call today from the dealers stating that my car has a recall notice on it. Apparently it needs it's ABS module changed. Has anyone else heard about this. My car is part of the batch of car's that were delivered on the 1st September 2007.

    The worst part is that my Dad has allowed my dealer to order in the parts, which means it has to be carried out there. I would rather have it done at Thorney's, but hey ho.

            ....But why is your dad taking calls and making decisions on your car?
            Technically, he's the legal owner and I was unreachable at the time.

              Mine got recalled and they made a complete pig's ear out of it, they took nearly a month to sort it.

              I had the hydraulic modulator changed ( or something like that) which was a different recall, apparently only 8 Corsa's got the recall in the UK. When I first went to the local detailer they knew sweet FA about the recall, because they thought it was the ABS one, so they didnt have the part they said they would. "Yes sir it will only take an hour or so" or so took nearly a month, had a crappy 1.4 corsa courtesy car, and got promised an upgrade, which they never did. Infact the customer service was complete ****. Wrote a letter and getting a free 1st service.

              The ABS recall has been done to alot of Corsa VXRs.... very surprising if you're in the batch they've only just contacted you.

                The thing is, I've used my ABS a lot. On the Nurburgring it practical came on at every corner so I know it works.

                    Not sure how accurate this website is but it gives you a list

                    I believe its to do with problems long term as opposed to short term

                    My recall - 1 of 10 cars I feel so special lol

                      recalls on modules are normally ''just in case'' doesn't mean that every module will be fault, they just have to cover their own arses in case one does **** up.

                        That would be what they told me, is there a dealers handbook you're quoting from?

                            Reception manager? Do you have a team of receptionists?
