Due to a manufacturing issue, the right-hand engine oil separator may have been damaged prior to engine assembly and may result in an oil leak. An oil leak in the presence of an ignition source may cause a vehicle fire.

If this was to occur, vehicle occupants may identify an oil smoke odour when driving or smoke emanating from the underhood area.

What are the hazards?

A vehicle fire could increase the risk of injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders.
