Rosstandart announced the recall of 36 Infiniti Q70 cars produced in the period from February 17, 2010 to July 2, 2014. The reason for the recall is the likely breakdown of the driveshaft, which threatens that the car will not be able to move independently.
- The recall campaign was started because of the material from which the propeller shaft tube is made. It turned out that a crack may appear in the "cardan" due to metal fatigue, and this will lead to a break in the shaft. At best, such a breakdown will result in noise while driving, and in the worst case, the car will not be able to move independently. In addition, there is a possibility that the parking brake cable may be damaged by the detached part of the propeller shaft and it will no longer be possible to use the "handbrake".
The list of VIN codes of potentially faulty vehicles is attached to the Rosstandart message. Infiniti Q70 owners can also check the car for a recall on Automotive News or simply wait for the dealer to contact them by letter or by phone. The cardan shaft will be replaced free of charge on all vehicles subject to recall.
- Earlier, Lamborghini announced the recall of the 15 Aventador SVJ coupe in Russia. The campaign will affect cars manufactured in 2019-2021. At high speeds and under the influence of headwinds, the bonnet can suddenly open and even completely break away from the car. Another recent Russian recall affected 685 SkodOctavia vehicles sold in Russia in 2014-2016. Czech cars are having problems with the electronic engine management software.
