Recall defect descripton: It has been identified that during the engine warm-up process and under certain driving/climate conditions, for instance periods of high acceleration or high engine load immediately after a cold start, in cold climates, there is the possibility for coolant leakage or oil seepage. This can lead to the possibility, in a worst-case scenario, of smoke or a slow developing fire in the engine compartment. However, the driver will receive a warning message on the driver Information Module indicating a low coolant level.
