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.

2018 Chevrolet Equinox; 2017-2018 GMC Acadia; 2018 GMC Terrain

General Motors LLC is recalling certain vehicles because the right front intermediate driveshaft may fracture and separate while driving.

If the front right intermediate drive shaft assembly separates while driving, the vehicle will lose propulsion, increasing the risk of a crash. If the assembly separates while parked on a grade, without the park brake engaged, the vehicle may move unintentionally, increasing the risk of a vehicle roll-away.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the right front intermediate drive shaft assembly, free of charge.


2016-2017 Mercedes-Benz GLE43

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC is recalling certain 2016-2017 AMG GLE43 coupe and 2017 AMG GLE43 vehicles.

The engine control unit and transmission control unit software may have compatibility conflicts and cause the engine to shut down while the driver brakes to a stop or accelerates following an ECO start. If the engine shuts down, there is an increased risk of a crash.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the engine and transmission control unit software, free of charge.


2017 Dodge Challenger, Charger

Chrysler is recalling certain 2017 Dodge Challenger and Charger vehicles equipped with Hellcat engines. The engine oil cooler (EOC) hoses may fail, resulting in a rapid loss of engine oil.

If an EOC line fails, oil may spray onto the windshield or contact a hot surface, impairing driver visibility and increasing the risk of a crash or fire.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the EOC lines, free of charge.


2013 BMW M6; 2012-2013 BMW X3

BMW of North America, LLC is recalling certain 2012-2013 BMW X3 xDrive28i, X3 xDrive35i and M6 convertible vehicles and 2013 M6 coupe vehicles.

The affected vehicles have a driver’s frontal air bag inflator that may have been improperly welded. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s frontal air bag, the inflator housing could separate from the base plate and result in metal striking the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver’s front air bag module, free of charge.


2008-2012 Honda Accord; 2010-2012 Honda Accord Crosstour, Insight; 2006-2011 Honda Civic; 2007-2011 CR-V; 2009-2012 Honda Fit, Pilot

One dealership may have incorrectly installed the replacement air bag inflators.

In the event of a crash, an incorrectly installed passenger frontal air bag inflator may deploy the air bag improperly, increasing the risk of injury.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag module assembly, free of charge.


2017-2018 Chrysler Pacifica

Chrysler is recalling certain Chrysler Pacifica vehicles equipped with the eight-passenger seating option. In certain passenger seating and vehicle situations, the second-row center seating position seat belt buckle could cause the left outboard seat belt to become unlatched. Inadvertent unlatching of the left outboard seat belt can increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a shorter second-row seat belt buckle, free of charge.


2017 Hyundai Ioniq Electric

Hyundai Motor Company is recalling certain 2017 Ioniq Electric vehicles. Manufacturing defects within the electronic power control unit (EPCU) may allow coolant to contact the unit’s circuit board. If coolant contacts the EPCU, a stall may result, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the EPCU, as necessary, free of charge.


2017 Ford Explorer, Police Interceptor Sedan, Police Interceptor Utility, Taurus

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2017 Explorer, Taurus and Police Interceptor utility and sedan vehicles. The steering gear heat shield fasteners may corrode, allowing the heat shield to detach. If the heat shield detaches, the steering gear may overheat, increasing the steering effort required by the driver, especially at lower speeds, and increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the heat shield fasteners as needed, free of charge.


2017 Ford F-150, Mustang

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain vehicles because the air bag inflator within the passenger frontal air bag module may rupture in the event of a crash. An inflator rupture may result in metal fragments striking the vehicle occupants, resulting in serious injury or death.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the passenger frontal air bag module, free of charge.


2017 Ford Focus

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2017 Focus vehicles. The rear left side seat back frame may have an insufficient weld between the outboard pivot bracket and the pivot nut joint, resulting in the seat back having reduced strength. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 207, “Seating Systems,” and No. 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”

The reduced seat back strength may increase the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the rear second left side rear seat back as necessary, free of charge.


2015-2017 Ford F-150; 2017 Ford F-250 SD, F-350 SD

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2015-2017 F-150, and 2017 F-250 and F-350 trucks equipped with a crew cab. The left rear inflatable seat belt buckle assembly may be inadequately attached to its mounting bracket. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages.”

If the left rear inflatable seat belt buckle separates from its mounting bracket, the seat occupant may not be adequately restrained, increasing their risk of injury.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt assembly, replacing the attaching rivet as necessary, free of charge.


2017 Toyota Highlander, Highlander Hybrid

Gulf States Toyota, Inc. is recalling certain 2017 Toyota Highlander and Highlander Hybrid vehicles equipped with accessory roof rail cross bars. The fasteners for the roof rails may not be torqued properly. The roof rails may loosen and possibly detach from the vehicle, becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.

GST will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and properly torque the fasteners, free of charge.


2017-2018 Audi A3

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is recalling certain 2017-2018 Audi A3 Cabriolet and A3 sedan vehicles. The engine control unit (ECU) software may misinterpret the flywheel rotation on engine start-up as a “knocking” condition, and the adjusted air/fuel mixture may result in an engine stall. An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the ECU software, free of charge.
