Automotive Recalls

As a service to your customers, please note the following vehicles that have been recalled by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) or by their manufacturers.

Note these recalls apply only to items that could affect vehicle occupancy safety. Items listed under separate manufacturer technical service bulletins are not always covered by warranty.

2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Chrysler is recalling certain 2017 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles. The affected vehicles have diodes in the power inverter module that may fail due to an overvoltage condition. If the diodes fail, the vehicle will not move under its own power.

A vehicle that suddenly cannot be driven increases the risk of a crash.

Chrysler has not yet finalized its remedy plans for this recall.


2011-2012 Dodge Grand Caravan

Chrysler is recalling certain 2011-2012 Dodge Grand Caravan vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the driver’s frontal air bag may unexpectedly deploy if the air bag wiring harness gets chafed within the steering wheel and short circuits.

Unexpected deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag increases the risk of a crash or driver injury.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the air bag wiring within the steering wheel, replacing it if necessary. A protective cover will also be installed. These repairs will be made, free of charge.


2017 Volvo XC90

Volvo Car USA LLC is recalling certain 2017 XC90 vehicles. The micro gas generator (MGG), a subcomponent part used within the right hand side seat belt retractor for the third row seats, may detach after the seatbelt retractor pretensioner is deployed.

Although the seat belt will operate as intended in the event of a crash, if the MGG detaches, it may be a projectile within the vehicle cabin, increasing the risk of injury.

Volvo will notify owners, and dealers will replace the third row passenger’s side seatbelt retractor, free of charge.


2017 Chrysler Pacifica Hybrid

Chrysler is recalling certain 2017 Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid Electric vehicles. The tire placard on the affected vehicles incorrectly lists the seating capacity as six occupants rather than seven occupants, with a combined weight of 950 pounds rather than 1,100 pounds. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.”

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tire placard label, free of charge.


2011 Porsche Cayenne S, Cayenne Turbo; 2011-2012 Porsche Panamera, Panamera 4; 2010-2012 Panamera 4S, Panamera S, Panamera Turbo

Porsche Cars North America, Inc. is recalling certain vehicles that have camshaft controllers that may come loose inside the engine, potentially resulting in an engine stall.

An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.

Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fastening screws for the camshaft adjusters, free of charge.


2017 Hyundai Santa Fe Sport

Hyundai Motor America is recalling certain 2017 Santa Fe Sport vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the bolt for the driver’s seat belt anchor might not have been sufficiently tightened during assembly.

If the bolt was not sufficiently tightened, the driver’s seat belt may come unanchored in a collision, increasing the risk of injury to the occupant.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will verify the driver’s seatbelt anchor is properly secured, free of charge.


2016 Freightliner Sprinter 2500, 3500; 2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500, 3500

Daimler Vans USA, LLC is recalling certain 2016 Mercedes-Benz and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vehicles equipped with reinforced front axles. The affected vehicles have tire labels on the B-pillar that list a tire pressure that is too low.

Operating the vehicle with low front tire pressures may result in tire damage, increasing the risk of a crash.

DVUSA will notify owners; Freightliner Sprinter and Mercedes-Benz dealers will check and replace the label, as necessary, free of charge.


2015-2016 Hyundai Genesis, Sonata

Hyundai Motor America is recalling certain vehicles because the warning light to indicate that the parking brake is applied may intermittently not illuminate in the dash due to corrosion in the switch.

If the parking brake indicator is not illuminated when the parking brake is applied, the driver may operate the vehicle with the parking brake partially engaged, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the parking brake switch, free of charge.


2013-2017 Hyundai Santa Fe, Santa Fe Sport

Hyundai Motor America is recalling certain 2013-2017 Santa Fe and Santa Fe Sport vehicles. In the affected vehicles, the secondary hood latch actuating cable may corrode and bind, causing the secondary hood latch to remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed.

If the hood is not securely closed or the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will replace the secondary latch cable, free of charge.


2017 Thor Challenger 37YT

Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2017 Challenger 37YT motorhomes. The exhaust pipe for the onboard gasoline generator may be incorrectly installed or missing completely from the vehicles. Without a correctly installed generator exhaust pipe, there may be a buildup of carbon monoxide within the interior of the vehicle, increasing the risk of personal injury or death.

TMC will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the motorhomes for proper generator exhaust installation and routing, replacing or reinstalling the exhaust, as necessary, free of charge.


2014-2017 MCI J4500

Motor Coach Industries is recalling certain J4500 motor coaches equipped with ZF front axles. In the affected vehicles, the front brake hose routing clamps may have been over-tightened, possibly damaging the brake hose wall reinforcement. If the brake hose wall reinforcement is damaged, the brake hose may leak. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 121, “Air Brake Systems.”

If the front brake hoses leak, the distance needed to stop the vehicle may be lengthened, increasing the risk of a crash.

MCI will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the clamp tightness, replacing any damaged brake hoses, as necessary, free of charge.


2015-2017 Polaris Slingshot

Polaris Industries, Inc. is recalling certain Slingshot vehicles that previously had their rear swingarms replaced during remedy of NHTSA recall No. 16V-255.

The replacement swingarms may have been installed without the sealing grommets installed, potentially resulting in road debris contaminating the rear wheel speed sensor. Contamination of the rear speed sensor will disable the ABS and traction/stability control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Polaris will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the swingarms for missing grommets, installing them as necessary, free of charge.


2016-2017 Toyota Tacoma

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling certain 2016-2017 Tacoma vehicles equipped with a six-cylinder engine. The affected vehicles have a crank position sensor that may malfunction, potentially resulting in an engine stall. An engine stall may increase the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will replace the crank position sensor with an improved design, free of charge.


2004 Mazda RX-8

Mazda North America Operations is recalling certain vehicles because the ball joint socket on the front suspension lower control arm may crack, and the ball joint may separate from the socket.

If the ball joint separates, steering control may be lost, increasing the risk of a crash.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front lower control arms, free of charge.


2004-2008 Mazda RX-8

Mazda North America Operations is recalling certain RX-8 vehicles because heat from the engine and the exhaust may cause the main fuel pump pipe to crack.

If the fuel pump pipe cracks, fuel may leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump filter kit, free of charge.


2018 Jaguar F-Type

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC is recalling certain 2018 Jaguar F-Type vehicles equipped with Highline headlamps.

If a front turn signal indicator stops working, the visual and audible turn signal reminders do not flash or chime faster as required. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, reflective devices and associated equipment.”
Without the change to the flash and chime rate, the driver may not know a turn signal is not working. If the turn signal is not working, other drivers will not be aware the vehicle is turning, increasing the risk of a crash.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle’s software, free of charge.


2011-2012 MCI D4000, D4005, D4500, D4505

Motor Coach Industries is recalling certain coaches equipped with Cummins ISX 12-liter engines. The vehicles may have an incorrectly installed exhaust bellow pipe, resulting in a bend in the pipe that can cause its premature failure.

If the pipe fails and a diesel regeneration cycle occurs, the hot exhaust gases will increase the risk of a fire.

MCI will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace any deformed or failed bellow pipes if necessary, free of charge.
