8 Apr 2008

PROTON Cars Australia has announced a recall on every Savvy compact car sold in Australia after it was found that water could enter into the rear wheel bearing.

The recall affects approximately 1600 Savvy models sold since the model was launched in March 2006.

The problem was identified during Proton’s regular random checks.

Owners are being advised to take their cars back to the dealer for a free inspection and repair.

“This recall is purely a precautionary measure because Proton’s highest priority is, and always will be, the convenience and safety of our customers,” said Proton Cars Australia managing director John Startari.

“Proton appreciates the trust and confidence our customers have in our products and regrets any inconvenience.”
