    Default Peugeot: Safety Recall for 206's

    I just got a letter from peugeot saying that all 206's with a list of VIN's which included my car are to be recalled and that it is vital that my vehicle has it's free recall repair.

    It is to do with the Brake pins!!!

    I have attached the two pages from the notice... If any1 finds it hard to read the list of VIN's that are affeted, let me know and I can rescan just the VINS and upload them here...

    I heard about this a few months ago (last year maybe?) from the UK. I spoke to my dealer at the time and they knew nothing of it at all. Tis funny that they now issue the recall!

    Thanks for the list of VIN's I havent received a letter so I think mine is just outside the affected group but I'll check anyway!

    yes I found the same thing in a UK forum in Jan or February this year.

    When it came in the post my dad goes "Your car has a safety recall" I go, "oh is that the brake pins?" he said "how did you know" I said the "internet told me about it almost 6 months ago" hehehe

    Glad Peugeot Australia or on the ball!!! I guess I will take it in some time next week

    I just got my letter (by registered mail) last tuesday, and some people in syd got theirs a few weeks before me. maybe pug-oz are staggering the mailout of letters so they don't get inundated with everyone wanting their brakes fixed at once.
