GM Europe recalls 88,000 Corsas for checks

FRANKFURT - General Motors Europe said on Wednesday it had asked the owners of around 88,000 Corsas to return their vehicle to dealers for battery and seat adjustment checks.

Opel France said it was recalling 20,807 new-generation Corsas to check a connection in the battery.

A further 1,399 Corsa owners were asked to return their cars to dealerships to investigate a possible fault in the adjustment mechanism of the two front seats, Opel France said in a statement.

Opel Italy said it was calling back 17,930 Corsas to install further holding blocks on the car batteries and to check the cabling.

It added that a further 3,621 three- and five-door Corsas had also been recalled to check the stability of the rear seats.

Germany's Adam Opel recalled about 8,000 Corsas for the battery check and a further 5,000 for a seat adjustement locking mechanism.

A spokesman said the 88,000 recalled Corsa models were from all over Europe.

A spokesman for Adam Opel said there had been no injuries or accidents linked to the possible faults and he declined to say how much the recall would cost the company.
