Just this moment I have received aRECALL letter from VAUXHALL for my Antara 2.2ltr ,184BHP 4x4

picked the car up May 2013.

Suprise surprise they have found a fault with the ELECTRICAL COOLING FANS MODULE AND THESOFTWARE HAS TO BE UPDATED.

This is after I broke down in August due to overheating and had to wait 8hrs for RAC to recover my family .me and a caravanfrom a layby 80 miles from home.

I have seen on the forum others have caught fire and others had over heating, hope this info helps

For all who are booking their cars in for the recall,make sure you get a completion time
Because when mine went In to be replaced and fixed they had the car for 9 days
Excuse was that parts had to come from Germany.this was in August 2013 before Vauxhall admitted there was a fault in the cooling fan module.

Hi all,did everyone that got the letters drive the 184bhp version? I drive the 163bhp model, but no recall, and I just had the yearly service work one month ago.

I know this sounds like I'm teaching anyone how to suck eggs
But when my Antara went supanova you could have fried an egg
On that fan module,
So if you haven't got a letter ring your dealer ASAP for peace of mind
I have seen the newspaper clips of the Antara that went up in flames.
