See SWNS story SWZAFIRA: Vauxhall has blamed the Zafira fire crisis on dangerous repairs carried out by unofficial dealers – and issued a full recall of the family car. The manufacturer has been rocked by a spate of incidents in which the popular people carrier has burst into flames. Now the firm has traced the problem – which only affects ‘B’ models built between 2009 and 2014 – to improper repair of the thermal fuse of the resistor in the heating and ventilation system. Both Vauxhall and the Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) have acknowledged this is from work done outside of Vauxhall’s “authorised service and maintenance processes and schedule”.
