Holden Commodore and Caprice LPG Recalls

Holden Commodore and Caprice LPG Recalls
Commodore and Caprice vehicles fitted with factory LPG are affected.

All VE and VF Commodore and WM and WN models of the Caprice built between the 10th of February 2011 and the 19th of June 2014 and fitted with factory LPG are being recalled, some for two different faults.

The ACCC are overseeing the recalls, the first affects the excess flow valve, which may restrict fuel supply to the engine resulting in reduced engine performance.

The second recall affects only LPG powered Commodore and Caprice vehicles built between the 25th of June 2013 and the 8th of April this year.

The ACCC say a durability condition has been identified where the LPG Fuel Feed Hose may develop a very slow leak towards the end of the vehicle’s lifetime. In this circumstance, fuel may leak at a very low rate of 1 or 2 millilitres per minute.

Due to the slow leak rate Holden feel there is only a very small chance of combustion.

Owners of affected vehicles are being contacted directly by Holden and more information is also available at Holden dealerships.
