Holden recalling 27,000 Commodore and Caprices

Holden is recalling 27,074 Commodores, Commodore Utes and
Caprices because of a problem with their windscreen wiper motors.

Fairfax reports that the problem could leave drivers without
functioning windscreen wipers if not fixed.

Vehicles manufactured between 27 February, 2013 and 31
October 31, 2013 are affected by the recall and, according to Holden the problem
will be fixed in about an hour for each vehicle and will be done free-of-charge
by the company.

Those Commodores affected include some VE and VF models.

Cars Guide reports that a spokesman for Holden said 11
customers had complained that the wipers weren’t working properly. However, he
added that “no accidents or injuries have been reported”.

Last month, the company recalled 42,000 Commodores because
of over a potential fault with the front seatbelts.

However earlier this month, the updated Holden Commodore VF has avoided the recall applied to Chevrolet Camaros in the US, even though both
cars use the same key and ignition system.
