Jaguar Land Rover recalls vehicles with defective instrument clusters [Video]

Hello, and welcome to another vehicle recall update.

Jaguar Land Rover has recalled more than twenty-one thousand vehicles potentially equipped with defective instrument clusters. The campaign affects 2017 Range Rover and Range Rover Sport sport utility vehicles. The automaker suspects all of the models referenced in the recall have the defective equipment installed.

Toyota recalls minivans with defective shift lock solenoids [Video]

Hello, and welcome to another vehicle recall update.

Toyota Motor Corporation has recalled more than 310,000 vehicles possibly equipped with defective shift-lock solenoids. The campaign affects 2005-2007 and 2009-2010 Toyota Sienna minivans.

The affected models likely contain defective shift-lock solenoids that may allow shift levers to move out of the “park” without drivers having pressed the brake pedal, a considerable potential hazard.

Toyota intends to notify both dealers and owners December first, two-thousand and seventeen. The automaker will direct dealer service departments to replace the shift-lock solenoids in recalled vehicles, free of charge.

Kia recalls vehicles with pinion gear plugs [Video]

Hello, and welcome to another vehicle recall update.

Kia Motors America has recalled more than three hundred and forty-two thousand vehicles possibly equipped with loose pinion plugs. The campaign affects 2014-2016 Kia Soul and Soul EV subcompact cars. The South Korean automaker estimates 1 percent of the vehicles referenced in the action contain the defective parts.

The affected models could contain loose pinion plugs that may force the pinion gear to separate from the steering gear assembly, resulting in dimensioned maneuverability and increasing the risk of an accident.

Kia plans to direct dealers to re-bond the pinion plugs in affected vehicles with new and improved adhesive.  Owners should expect to receive notification via first-class mail sometime between November sixteenth and November twenty-fourth, two-thousand and seventeen.

Mercedes recalls vehicles with defective steering columns [Video]

Hello, and welcome to another vehicle recall update.

Mercedes Benz U-S-A has recalled nearly five hundred thousand vehicles possibly equipped with defective steering columns. The campaign affects two dozen models. However, Mercedes speculates that a mere one percent of the vehicles named in the recall contain the defective parts.

Affected models could contain steering columns with broken clock springs. These damaged fixtures inhibit steering column grounding, risking the sudden occurrence of electrostatic electricity strong enough to cause inadvertent air bag deployment. This poses a serious safety risk to occupants.

Mercedes plans to direct dealers to add steering column grounding components to all vehicles, free of charge, as a precautionary measure. The car company will notify dealers this month and contact owners via first-class mail December twelfth, two-thousand and seventeen.

These models feature front seat belt assemblies with pretensioner components that may not fasten properly, posing a serious safety hazard to occupants.

Hyundai has directed dealers to inspect and, if necessary, repair the pretensioner parts in these models. The automaker will reimburse owners for any required work. Individuals affected by this recall should have received notification via first-class mail on or around October twelfth, two-thousand and seventeen.

Hello, and welcome to another vehicle recall update.

Porsche Cars North America has recalled more than fifty thousand vehicles believed to be equipped with cracked fuel pump filter flanges. The campaign affects 2003 to 2006 Porsche Cayenne sport utility vehicles.

Affected vehicles are likely to contain flanges with hairline fractures that may release small amounts of fuel and therefore increase the risk of engine fires. This poses a serious risk to owners.

Porsche has directed dealers to replace the cracked flanges free of charge, a process that should take roughly one-and-a-half hours. The car company has not yet released a timetable for owner notification.
