image for More Car Industry Troubles: Reliant Robin's Recalled
Only Fools and Horses...make cars like these

The motor industry is in turmoil over the recall of several leading manufacturer's shitty cars but it now emerges that the most beloved vehicles of them all - the Reliant Robin - has also serious flaws that require a return to the garage.

The Reliant Robin was made famous as it was driven by Rodney and Del Boy in classic comedy Only Fools and Horses. Millions of people around the world watched this show and sought to replicate the adventures of the cheeky Cockney bastards by purchasing the car.

But following the lead of other major car manufacturers lately, the owners of Reliant Robin have announced a massive recall after discovering that the vehicle has only three wheels.

"It is an issue we only just noticed after watching the umpteenth bloody repeat of Only Fools and Horses on the telly", said a spokesman.

"It's very unsafe indeed when you come to think about it. A three-wheeled car? How did we miss that little detail?!!"

The makers of the latest Bond film have since cancelled an order for twenty Reliant Robin's which they intended to use in the glamorous movie.
