Proton Cars Australia has announced a product recall on its Savvy compact city car following the identification of the possibility of water entry into the rear wheel bearing, which may lead to a malfunction of the affected components.
In line with Proton's continuing commitment to quality, regular random checks are conducted on Proton cars as part of its overall customer program. The results from recent inspections brought the potential problem to the company's attention.
According to Proton Cars Australia managing director, John Startari, safety and the satisfaction of its customers is the company's primary concern and as a precautionary measure all Savvy's sold in Australia since it was launched are being recalled for inspection and repair.
"The recall will affect a total of approximately 1600 Savvy cars, sold in Australia since the model first went on sale here in March 2006," said John Startari.
"All the necessary checks and replacements will be made at no cost to the customer," he said.
"Proton will notify all Savvy owners in writing of the potential problem and will advise them to take their cars to the nearest Proton dealer for an 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.
"Proton appreciates the trust and confidence our customers have in our products and regrets any inconvenience," he added.
