The DS 7 is the subject of a massive recall

Do you have a DS 7? Be careful because your car may be the subject of a recall campaign. We will explain everything to you !

When cars are released to the market they are usually ready, it seems logical. But it sometimes happens that problems become apparent a little later, sometimes having a direct impact on the safety of those on board as well as other road users. Sometimes this can also endanger the vehicle, with e.g. a fire risk. In these cases, manufacturers organize what are called recall campaigns. The vehicles concerned are then identified by the brand, which sends them back to the workshop to be repaired.

DS SUV’s turn

And regardless of the manufacturer, everyone can be affected one day or another by this type of operation. This is for example the case of Kia, Ford or even Ferrari and even Lamborghini! But today, it’s DS’s turn to launch a recall campaign for one of its models. This is the DS 7, and more particularly its plug-in hybrid version. But what’s the problem with High-end SUV tricolor? Well the latter is affected by a software-related problem, which causes the battery temperature to rise abnormally. This can lead to premature deterioration, or even a risk of fire.

Free repair

In total, there are no less than 14,806 DS 7 hybrids left the factory between February 19, 2019 and November 22, 2022 which are affected by this recall campaign. Owners will be contacted and invited to come to a workshop to have the problem corrected. The downtime could range from 25 minutes to 9 hours if the entire battery needs to be replaced. In all cases, repairs are carried out at the expense of the brand and covered by the latter.
