Holden recall notice for Captiva, Barina, Epica and Viva

A potential brake fault has caused one of the biggest recalls in Holden's history.

GM Holden is recalling 51,387 of its Korean-built Captiva, Barina, Epica and Viva models after the Korean arm of General Motors found corrosion issues in the brake control unit.

The official GM Holden recall notice says this could lead to reduced brake performance or a "spongy" low brake pedal.

Unusually, the recall applies to four different types of vehicle from a light city car to a family SUV. All were built before last year

GM Holden spokesperson Kate Lonsdale told the Herald-Sun there have been no incidents of this occurring in Australia.

"It has come from a GM Korea initiated recall, we've not actually picked up the condition here," she says.

The recall covers 8195 model-year Barina hatches and sedans, 27,778 Series I Captiva SUVs, 3723 Epica sedans and 11,691 Vivas.

"Although we haven't seen the condition here, there is still the potential so we want to bring the cars in to double-check as a precautionary measure," Lonsdale adds.

Holden will be contacting registered owners by mail or alternatively you can contact your nearest Holden Service Centre.  Search www.carservice.com.au
