Vauxhall is once more facing calls from owners to explain why its cars have caught fire after several Corsa D owners reported their cars had burst into flames unexpectedly. It has issued a Vauxhall Corsa recall for the 2,767 vehicles affected

Last year, Vauxhall issued a recall for 234,938 Zafira B models in the UK following a widely reported spate of fires. The company eventually recalled the model twice to ensure it would no longer catch fire.

Now owners of the fourth-generation Vauxhall Corsa D, built between 2006 and 2014, have also reported cases of the vehicle catching fire. In April this year, Vauxhall identified a fault with the braking system in some 1.4-litre petrol Corsa D models where water could get in and fry the electronics, causing a fire. The Corsa issue is not related to the Zafira fires.

Vauxhall says nine cases had previously been reported to it, of which two had resulted in a fire. The company issued a safety recall earlier this April for 2,767 vehicles affected.

However, seven Vauxhall Corsa D owners have since contacted BBC’s Watchdog about their car catching fire, with three falling under the existing recall criteria, and four outside it. Vauxhall sold over 700,000 Corsa D models between 2006 and 2014 in the UK and the news has left owners asking for more answers from Vauxhall.

Owners will be notified if their car is included in the recall, but Vauxhall is encouraging all concerned Corsa drivers to contact its customer care helpline on 0800 026 0867.

I've got a 1986 Ford Fiesta, is that part of the recall too?

I'd never buy another Vauxhall as long as I live. had a Corsa that was serviced by them every year. had it checked over the week before, everything fine. 43,000 miles and the head gasket blew. it was out of warranty and they refused to help. got the car to a 3rd party who said the oil hasn't been changed in years (black not near clear). so my servicing and oil change was never done by them! I had to pay for a 3rd party to rebuild the engine as Vauxhall wouldn't even discount me. scum.

Op says;
Short answer - yes the limited edition 2012-2013 Black Edition 1.4 turbo has a pretty high hit rate in terms of the fires. The diamond cut two-tone wheel trims edition.
