The Vauxhall Zafira B model

There have been reports of potential faults in the Vauxhall Zafira (Zafira B model launched in 2005) leading to vehicle fires. As a result of this, Vauxhall has carried out an investigation into the heating and ventilation systems of Vauxhall Zafira models.

Vauxhall has been made aware of several incidents concerning Zafira B models that have undergone repairs.

Vauxhall has issued the following advice:

‘If you are concerned about your vehicle or if you notice any unusual characteristics with the heating and ventilation system (for example a squeaking noise from the dashboard) you should contact your Vauxhall dealer and arrange for your vehicle to be inspected. This will be done at no cost.’

If you suspect your car is affected, Vauxhall recommends that you set your fan speed to zero (0) on the heating and ventilation system. Vauxhall recommends that Level 4 be used only to demist the windscreen when absolutely necessary.

If you are concerned and would like to speak to a member of our customer services team regarding your vehicle please contact them on 0141 305 8328.
