YEAR REPORT NUMBER  ALERT NUMBER (and LINK) RISK LEVEL BRAND NAME RISK DESCRIPTION
2017 1 A12/1765/16 Serious risk Nissan Navara
The upper brake light on the hardtop may not light up when the engine is starting and the vehicle is about to move off.
2 A12/0013/17 Serious risk Dacia Duster, Logan and Sandero In the event of an impact the driver's airbag may not deploy.
4 A12/0087/17 Serious risk Renault Master
The hinges of articulated panels may break. If all break at the same time on the same panel,
the panel might fall into the traffic area.
5 A12/0095/17 Serious risk Dacia Logan II, Sandero II
The front right brake caliper's clip could break as a result of the cylinder rupturing. This could
reduce the efficiency of the vehicle’s braking system in the case of emergency braking
5 A12/0129/17 Serious risk Renault Clio
The front right brake caliper's clip could break as a result of the cylinder rupturing. This could
reduce the efficiency of the vehicle’s braking system in the case of emergency braking.
6 A12/0148/17 Serious risk Dacia Dokker
The locking system on the side sliding doors does not work as required. In the event of a collision,
the sliding doors may consequently open leading to an increased risk of injury for the passengers.
9 A12/0237/17 Serious risk Nissan Note, Pulsar The chemical composition in the gas generator of the curtain (head-protection) airbag may not be correct. It is therefore possible that, in the event of a side-on collision, the curtain airbag may not be
deployed, and passengers in the vehicle may be injured.
12 A12/0336/17 Serious risk Infiniti Q30, QX30
The mixture ratio of the ignition chemicals in the inflator of the passenger airbag is incorrect.
In the event of an accident, this could prevent the deployment of the passenger airbag.
14 A12/0423/17 Serious risk Renault Twingo
Due to possible breaking of the welds, there is a risk of the outer covering of the bonnet detaching while driving.
14 A12/0425/17 Serious risk Renault Twingo
The covering of the spoiler might come loose and pieces of the tailgate glass may detach while driving.
15 A12/0470/17 Serious risk Renault Trafic The tyre pressures specified on the information label may be incorrect. The width of the spare
wheel may be incorrect.
16 A12/0506/17 Serious risk Renault Kangoo
Cracks in the casing of the steering column could lead to fatigue rupture of the casing. This could lead to the controls under the steering wheel (indicators, lights, wipers) becoming jammed and difficult to operate. In case of rupture due to bending in the event of an impact, it could affect the steering.
16 A12/0507/17 Serious risk Renault Megane
When accelerating sharply, the software does not require adequate pressure to be applied to the
clutch which could cause the clutch to overheat. As a result, the vehicle might go into 
"back-up" mode whilst driving
17 A12/0536/17 Serious risk Renault Megane When the rear door is closed, the child safety lock pre-set to the 'locks activated' position can disengage.
17 A12/0537/17 Serious risk Renault Clio The front windscreen wiper mechanism could stop working whilst driving.
17 A12/0552/17 Serious risk Dacia Dokker The locking system on the side sliding doors does not work as required. In the event of a side
impact, the sliding doors may consequently open leading to an increased risk of injury for the
passengers.
19 A12/0614/17 Serious risk Renault Captur, Kadjar Due to a calibration error in the engine management controller, the after-treatment system for nitrogen oxides (NOx) is progressively saturated with sulphur. This leads to bad functioning of the nitrogen oxides (NOx) trap, reducing its efficiency in decontaminating NOx emissions.
20 A12/0619/17 Serious risk Infiniti Q30, QX30 In the event of an accident, the restraint systems may not be activated as intended because the airbag control unit is incorrectly programmed
20 A12/0620/17 Serious risk Nissan Murano A power steering pressure hose can break. This results in leakage of power steering fluid, which can cause power steering to fail and possibly also cause a fire.
20 A12/0623/17 Serious risk Renault Talisman Possibility of incorrect fixing of the bottom cover of the dashboard, which may cause its partial or complete detachment
nouveauté : Mitsubushi nouveau dans le groupe renault Nissan et déjà ! 20 A12/0615/17 Serious risk Mitsubishi FUSO Canter The fuel return pipe is insufficiently designed against chemicals, paints, soap or fats used by bodywork manufacturers or in cleaning. The chemicals cause the hoses to swell, which could cause them to break free of their connection, causing fuel to leak out. In the worst case, a fire could occur.
21 A12/0677/17 Serious risk Renault Scénic Part of the sound insulation can detach which can cause the automatic parking brake to be
released unintentionally.
21 A12/0696/17 Serious risk Renault Talisman When the rear door is closed, a child safety lock pre-set to the 'locks activated' position could disengage.
23 A12/0764/17 Serious risk Renault Kangoo Fixing screws for the tension rods on the sub-frame are missing. As a result, there is a risk that the engine’s anti-intrusion bar will not properly protect the occupants in the event of a frontal collision.
23 A12/0765/17 Serious risk Renault Espace, Kadjar, Megane, Scenic, Talisman The mixture ratio of the ignition chemicals in the inflators for the window airbags is not
correct. This could prevent the window airbags from inflating in the event of an accident.
23 A12/0781/17 Serious risk Dacia Logan A flexible strip which should be under the front protective moulding is missing. This could lead
to the possibility of emission of CO2 very slightly higher than that of the type approval
documentation.
24 A12/0815/17  Serious Risk Renault  Talisman The brake caliper/brake disk combination may be inadequate. As a consequence, the inadequate friction surface between the brake disk and the brake could affect the brake efficiency and balance with a possibility of pulling (right or left) during braking, or even a risk of decreasing braking efficiency of the vehicle without warning on the dashboard.
26 A12/0872/17 Serious Risk Mitsubishi Outlander
A malfunction of the engine's software has been detected and the spark plugs do not work
properly. As a consequence, the main battery may not be charged, causing the vehicle to stop
because of a low battery which could create a hazard for passengers and other road users.
30 A12/0984/17 Serious Risk Dacia Duster The cabling for the car horn is inadequate and the car horn may stop working
31 A12/1030/17 Serious Risk Nissan Qashqai
The rear-right wheel-arch protection may scuff the brake hose. This could result in a leak of brake fluid and, subsequently, reduced braking performance.
31 A12/1033/17 Serious Risk Nissan Tiida, Note
Deterioration of the inflator propellant may, under certain usage conditions, lead to abnormal deployment of the passenger airbag.
34 A12/1123/17 Serious Risk Renault Kadjar Due to a problem with the airbag control module, the airbag may fail to deploy, or deploy incorrectly, in the event of an accident
34 A12/1150/17 Serious Risk Nissan Micra The ignition switch harness may not be correctly locked in position. As a result the connector may disconnect, which could result in engine shut down while driving with no possibility torestart
35  A12/1166/17 Serious Risk Renault Mégane There is an error in the instructions for the procedure for locking the rear doors.
35 A12/1188/17 Serious Risk Renault Zoe The "park" function activator on the parking brake mechanism may break. As a consequence it
may not be possible to lock the automatic transmission in the park position.
