    Strewth, the IKEA visit (long ago), didn't go well at all, I panicked, all I wanted was to find my way out. But I needn't have panicked, when I kicked off the store security found the way out for me.............the escorted me off the premises. I interpreted their look when we got out, it said DON'T COME BACK.

    I usually panic when she says the word ikea but by the time I get there the bottle of whiskey has settled the nerves a bit so I can stagger my way through.

    Oh dear, Ford again.

    194 Ford GT’s recalled, due to a hydraulic fluid that may leak onto the exhaust and cause a fire.

    There are still Zafiras being driven by unaware mums which can burst into flames yet unrecalled.

    Those are appallingly dangerous yet no public announcement has been made to my knowledge.

    Does anyone here have one? What's the spiel?

    Over 234,000 Vauxhall Zafiras were recalled twice due to fire over 2 years ago. I think you missed that one Jim.

    I didn't word that correctly Ian, I meant can they be sure that all have been taken in for the repair?

    One friend of wifey's didn't know and only found out when I saw the car and asked wifey to mention it to her.

    It's troubling.

    When you’re going back as far as 2005 to recall a vehicle and many owners I guess it can be difficult to track them all. IMO it should be flagged up at MOT if a vehicle is outstanding a recall and it should be noted at least as an advisory. The gov.uk website has a place to enter your reg to check this information too.
