2011-12 HOLDEN COMMODORE LPG MODELS ARE BEING RECALLED FOR FIRE RISK


Holden has officially issued a recall for approximately 5000 examples of the LPG-powered 'VE' and 'VF' Commodore and Caprice ranges that were produced between 2011 and 2015. Apparently, there have been concerns over the LPG vaporiser which could cause an electrical fault in the vehicle.

According to the company, the affected units may have serviced or replaced their LPG vaporiser – leading to a loose electrical ground connection.

If this occurs, there could be a possible electrical arc in the LPG fuel feed hose, and this poses a risk of a fuel hose leak or fire.

Holden has urged owners to contact their local dealers urgently and arrange an inspection and repair of their vehicle.

If you don't want to be one of the unlucky sods whose Commodore catches fire, like the one in the video below (not that we know how this one actually caught fire), then best you heed their advice and get your vehicle checked out!
