Honda is recalling certain 2019 Honda Ridgeline and Pilot vehicles. The mounting holes for the clip that secures the right center pillar trim panel may be larger than intended. In the event of a crash necessitating right side curtain air bag deployment, the clip may not hold the center pillar trim panel in position and it may potentially interfere with the curtain air bag deployment. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 214, “Side Impact Protection,” and No. 226, “Ejection Mitigation.”

In the event of a crash, if the curtain air bag does not deploy as intended, it can increase the risk of injury.

MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat belt buckles, free of charge.


2018 Mercedes-Benz C300, C300 4Matic, C350E, C43 AMG, C63 AMG, C63S AMG; 2018-2019 Mercedes-Benz GLC300, GLC350E, GLC43 AMG, CLC63 AMG, GLC63S AMG

The status of the passenger side air bag may not display correctly. If the passenger air bag is incorrectly displayed as “on” when it is not, a front seat passenger may be unaware that the air bag will not deploy in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.

2011-2014 Lamborghini Gallardo

Automobili Lamborghini is recalling certain 2011-2014 Gallardo Coupe and Gallardo Spyder vehicles. The engine control unit (ECU) software may ease trouble codes after the ignition is turned off, not illuminating warning lamps and preventing drivers from being warned of safety system problems the next time that they are driving.

If the warning lamps do not indicate a safety system failure such as an engine or fuel injection system malfunction, continuing to drive the vehicle with a faulty system and no warning can increase the risk of a crash or injury.

Lamborghini will notify owners, and dealers will reflash the engine software with the appropriate procedure, free of charge.


2014-2015 Maserati Ghibli, Quattroporte

Maserati North America, Inc. is recalling certain 2014-2015 Maserati Quattroporte and Ghibli vehicles. During production of the fuel lines, the lines may have been damaged, possibly resulting in a fuel leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

Maserati will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel line assemblies, free of charge, unless previously repaired under recall 17V-045.


2017-2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia

Chrysler is recalling certain 2017-2018 Alfa Romeo Giulia vehicles equipped with GME 280HP engines and all wheel drive (AWD). The brake fluid line may contact a coolant hose clamp, possibly causing brake fluid to leak onto the exhaust.

Brake fluid leaking onto the exhaust can increase the risk of a fire.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will install a bracket on the brake fluid line to prevent contact with the coolant hose clamp. If damage is found on the brake line, it will be replaced, free of charge.

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is recalling certain 2018-2019 Volkswagen Atlas and Tiguan and 2019 Volkswagen Jetta vehicles that do not have keyless entry. The instrument cluster may not provide an audible warning to let the driver know that the key is still in the ignition when the door is open. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 114, “Theft Protection.”

If the driver is not notified by an audible noise that the key is left in the ignition, it can increase the risk of vehicle theft or crash.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the instrument cluster, free of charge.


2019 Ram 1500

Chrysler is recalling certain 2019 Ram 1500 trucks. The seat track position sensor on the manually-adjusted passenger seats may come loose and out of position, preventing the sensor from detecting if the seat is in the full-forward position.

If the sensor cannot identify that the seat is in the full-forward position and adjust the frontal air bag deployment accordingly, there would be an increased risk of an injury in the event of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the passenger seat track position sensor bracket, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.


2009-2012 Audi Q5; 2007-2012 Audi Q7

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is recalling certain 2007-2012 Audi Q7 and 2009-2012 Audi Q5 vehicles, previously repaired under NHTSA recall 16V-660. These vehicles were previously repaired with an interim repair of installing butyl tape to the fuel pump flange, until replacement remedy parts became available.

The butyl tape may not prevent fuel from leaking. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump flange and install butyl tape, free of charge.


2017-2018 Honda Civic

Honda is recalling certain 2017-2018 Honda Civic Hatchback and Civic Type R vehicles. The owners guide in these vehicles may not have been included or if included, the owners guide may not properly provide required information.
