make and model information
2017 - 2018
See attached VIN list
VIN (Vehicle identification number)
What are the defects?
Affected vehicles have been fitted with an oil pipe with a smaller interior pipe diameter than required. This may result in insufficient oil supply to the turbocharger’s turbine bearing, which may lead to the turbine bearing wearing prematurely, or in the worst case, the bearing may seize causing the turbine blade to fracture.
What are the hazards?
If the turbine blade fractures, these fragments could be ingested by the engine, which, in a worst case scenario, may result in the engine stalling and may not be able to be restarted. This may cause a safety risk to vehicle occupants and/or other road users.
