Vauxhall has issued recall notices for its medium Vivaro and large Movano vans for loss of braking performance.

According to the Driver & Vehicle Standards Agency, the action affects 598 vans built between 2 October 2015 and 15 October 2015.

The DVSA said the defect could cause a ‘hard’ brake pedal, loss of engine power and the vehicle adopting limp mode. Vauxhall is replacing the vacuum pump on affected vans.
