Skoda News Feed: Skoda Octavia and Superb recalled due to fire risk


New member
Skoda Australia has recalled 3801 examples of the Octavia and Superb, due to a manufacturing fault which could lead to a fire.

The fault affects Skoda Octavias and Superbs built between 2020 and 2024.

“Due to a manufacturing issue, the heat shield between the brake master cylinder and the exhaust may have been incorrectly fitted,” Skoda says in its recall notice.

“As a result, a connection to the brake fluid reservoir could melt. If this occurs, brake fluid may leak and cause a reduction in braking performance and/or if brake fluid leaks on to a hot exhaust there is a risk of a vehicle fire.

“A reduction in braking performance and/or a vehicle fire could increase the risk of an accident causing serious injury or death to vehicle occupants, other road users or bystanders and/or damage property.”
