What are the defects?
Due to a production fault, over time a crack in the transmissions pressure accumulator can occur.
What are the hazards?
If the pressure accumulator cracks, oil and pressure is lost in the hydraulic system of the gearbox. As a result, the transmission of engine power via the gearbox is interrupted. The experience of this symptom would be comparable to depressing the clutch in a vehicle fitted with a manual transmission. This could increase the likelihood of an accident affecting the occupants of the vehicle and other road users.
Who should owners/operators contact for more information?
Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Communications is the responsible regulator for this recall.
