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.
