The European Commission publishes a list of durable consumer goods recently recalled in the EU, including automotive recalls, every week. You can find the types involved in each recall, the problematic production period, and a schematic description of the fault below the images below (for illustration only). The following, of course, only outline the nature of the problems; if you suspect that your car (motorbike, tractor, bus…) is involved, be sure to contact your dealer, in which case he is the source of your knowledge.
