I also have a Rio Diesel (on a 09 reg) but have not had any recall notice.
Does anyone know what the recall is and what it relates to ?

looks like a very poor marketing ploy to get existing Rio owners to call and therefore get your mailing details before the new Rio is launched


can confirm as Murphwiz said no Rio recalls that we are aware of as of 11.14am 20/06/2011

phew. glad about that.

If it were a marketing ploy, there is no way I want a 1.1L diesel underpowered gutless Rio.
I am perfectly happy with my 1.5L Diesel Rio. lol

OK - got through 3rd time calling today - gave my reg no to advisor who said that i was not affected by the recall, but also that he didnt know what the recall was for -and that none of the owners who he had spoken to were affected either!

Strange!
