AVTOVAZ recalls more than 1.7 thousand LADA Kalina, Granta and Priora cars


AVTOVAZ announced the recall of 1716 LADA Kalina, Granta and Priora cars, sold from April of 2018 to the present day. The reason for the recall is the discrepancy between the steering wheel configuration and the driver’s airbag module, reports the press service of Rosstandart.

Dealers of AvtoVAZ will inform owners of LADA Kalina, Granta and Priora cars that fall under the recall, by sending letters and / or by phone about the need to provide the vehicle to the nearest dealership for repair work. It will be checked the product markings in the vehicles, as well as the compatibility of the driver and steering wheel airbag module, the condition of the steering wheel frame and, if necessary, the replacement of the steering wheel.

Recall that at the end of July AVTOVAZ completed the production of LADA Priora sedans. The decision was made based on consumer interest in the latest LADA models and declining demand for Priora. At the same time, the latest cars of the first generation of LADA Kalina and Granta models were released.

As AUTOSTAT reported earlier, sales of these models are completed - there are no more dealers' cars available. Meanwhile, in August, the production of the restyled LADA Granta family started, which now includes four body types - sedan, hatchback, liftback and station wagon, and the Kalina model will cease to exist.
