I had a Zafira prior to my latest bucket of trouble... It was a very versatile motor but suffered from poor gearing over 4000 rpm at 70 in 5th!! I had all the recalls done and can conform that the first recall was a check over where they checked that you had the correct resistor in place and the fan motor was not drawing too much current on the lowest setting (where the highest resistance was) that was a crap recall so they did another where they changed the resistor and if either the fan, wiring and or the pollen filter was dirty they would also replace that FOC. (the pollen filter sitting next to the fan and resistor was also an issue, they also fitted a crap bit of foam to stop the drips of water getting into the fan housing... That did not cure the issue and VX had to bite the bullet and do a proper and more expensive job. So the last recall meant All fans were replaced with a different type with drainage holes in them, and also a proper replacement body/scuttle cover was fitted which would stop ingress of water to the fan housing. That was the issue the fans started to seize up due to corrosion, that drew more current the resistor was not melting the solder and did not open, this then caused excess heat and the pollen filter would catch fire then you had less than 90 seconds to stop the car and get the family out....... VX tried to blame faulty resistor repairs, where the fuseable resistorwas disabled so it could not go open circuit. But when they realised that most of the fires were happening to cars with good resistors in and had been serviced only by VX they had to start taking the situation seriously. A Farcebook group did a huge amount of work in getting VX to own up and fix the issues.I was confident with mine once the final fix was done and if they were still making them I would buy another, as long as it had six proper gears!!!
