2014-2016 Chevrolet SS

General Motors is recalling certain 2014- 2016 Chevrolet SS vehicles. Corrosion of the connector between the electric power steering module and the torque sensor connector may cause a loss of electric power steering assist.

A greater steering effort would be needed to control the vehicle if power steering is lost, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW of North America is recalling certain vehicles because they may have received incorrect replacement left rear taillight assemblies. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.”

Vehicles with the incorrect left rear lamp assemblies may be less conspicuous to other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace any incorrect left rear taillight assemblies, free of charge.


2017-2018 BMW M760Li

BMW of North America, LLC is recalling certain 2017-2018 M760Li xDrive vehicles. The affected vehicles have engine oil cooler lines that may loosen causing an oil leak in the engine compartment.

The leaking engine oil may get onto the front brake discs, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the engine oil cooler lines, replacing them as necessary, free of charge.


2011-2014 Chrysler 300; 2011-2014 Dodge Challenger, Charger, Durango; 2012-2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Chrysler is recalling certain vehicles with electro-hydraulic power steering that are equipped with a 5.7L or 3.6L engine and a 160-, 180- or 220-amp alternator. In the affected vehicles, the alternator may suddenly fail. If the alternator fails, the vehicle may stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash. There is also a possibility that the alternator may short-circuit, increasing the risk of a fire.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the alternator and, depending on the part number, will replace the alternator, if necessary, free of charge.


2011-2015 Dodge Journey

Chrysler is recalling certain Dodge Journey vehicles because 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.


2013-2016 Honda Accord

Honda is recalling certain Accord vehicles because the case for the battery sensor, part of the battery management system, may allow water to get in, potentially causing an electrical short. An electrical short increases the risk of a fire.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the sensor, free of charge. Remedy parts are currently unavailable. Dealers will perform an interim remedy of applying adhesive to the case to prevent water intrusion.


2007-2011 Honda CR-V

Honda is recalling certain CR-V vehicles that have had the passenger frontal air bag replaced. The air bag inflator repair kit may have been assembled by the supplier with an incorrect wiring harness.

If an inflator with an incorrect wiring harness is installed, the air bag may not deploy as intended, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the passenger frontal air bag inflator, free of charge.


2017 Lexus ES350

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling certain vehicles because the right-hand side tie rod lock nut may loosen over time. If the lock nut loosens, the tie rod may separate causing a loss of steering and increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the lock nut and, if it is found loose, replace the lock nut, steering gear assembly and tie rod assembly, free of charge.


2016-2017 Buick Envision

General Motors LLC is recalling certain Envision vehicles that received a replacement headliner as part of a repair. These service parts might not have had impact energy-absorbing foam blocks attached. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard No. 201, “Occupant protection in interior impact.”

If the service parts do not have energy-absorbing foam blocks, there may be an increased risk of occupant injury in the event of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the headliner assembly, free of charge.


2017 Aston Martin DB11

Aston Martin the Americas is recalling certain 2017 DB11 vehicles.

The affected vehicles have a tire pressure monitoring system that may be incorrectly calibrated, resulting in the low tire pressure-warning telltale not illuminating at the required minimum activation pressure. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 138, “Tire Pressure Monitoring Systems.”

If the driver is not warned a tire is under-inflated, continued use may result in tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

Aston Martin will notify owners, and dealers will update the TPMS software, free of charge.


2016-2017 Buick Envision

General Motors LLC is recalling certain Buick Envision vehicles. An accessory NSV universal tablet holder may have been installed incorrectly onto the front seat head restraints, preventing the head restraint posts from fully engaging in the seat back. If so, the head restraints would fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 202a, “Head Restraints.”

If the head restraint posts are not fully engaging in the seat back, the head restraint may loosen or dislodge, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the head restraints and tablet holders for the correct installation, reinstalling them as necessary, free of charge.


2015-2017 Ford Transit

Ford Motor Company is recalling all 2015- 2017 Transit vehicles except 156- and 178-inch wheelbase chassis cab and cutaway bodies.

In the affected vehicles, the flexible coupling connecting the transmission to the driveshaft may prematurely fail. If the coupling fails, the vehicle will not be able to move under its own power, and the disconnected driveshaft may impact and damage the brake and fuel lines. Additionally, the separated driveshaft may allow the vehicle to roll if the vehicle is exited when the transmission is in Park but the parking brake is not applied. These scenarios may increase the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and as an interim repair, dealers will replace the flexible coupling on any vehicle with more than 30,000 miles. A final remedy repair of a redesigned flexible coupling or a revised driveshaft equipped with a universal joint is being developed and is expected in early 2018. These repairs will be made free of charge.


2016-2017 Audi Q3

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is recalling certain 2016-2017 Audi Q3 vehicles. If the parking brake is used during emergency braking, the brake lights on the vehicle will not activate. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.”

A vehicle approaching from behind may not have any warning that the vehicle is stopping, increasing the risk of a crash.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle software, free of charge.


2018 Honda Odyssey

Honda is recalling certain Odyssey vehicles because the seat belt tongue for the third row center seating position may not be compatible with the latch, preventing the seat belt from latching securely. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

If in the event of a crash, the seat belt cannot restrain the occupant, they have an increased risk of being injured.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the third row center seat belt to make sure it has the correct tongue, replacing the seat belt, if necessary, free of charge.


2010-2011 Jaguar XJ

Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling certain 2010-2011 XJ vehicles. If, while servicing the vehicle, the vehicle does not successfully receive an update to the restraint control module (RCM) software, the default air bag calibration settings may be incorrect.

In the event of a crash, the incorrect calibration may not activate the air bag deployment as intended, increasing the risk of injury.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will update the RCM with the latest software, free of charge.


2014 BMW 525d xDrive; 2013-2014 BMW 528i, 528i xDrive, 535i, 535i xDrive, 550i, 550i xDrive, M5; 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5

BMW of North America, LLC is recalling certain vehicles because the rear reflex reflectors may not reflect enough light. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment.”

The vehicle may be less visible to other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the rear reflex reflectors, free of charge.
