Ford Recalls 2016 Truck and SUV Models

Ford recalls 2016 truck and SUV models as of December 2, 2017.

Recall Information

More than approximately 200,000 2016 Ford F-150 trucks and 2016 Ford Explorer SUVs are being recalled because of loose front power seats.

The issue is with the seat adjuster, making it possible for it to become loose or fall out completely. There is also concern with the front seat cushions if it is missing the upper left-hand pivot bolt.

This can leave drivers and passengers without proper restraint, putting the riders at higher risk of injury during crash.

The vehicles being recalled were built between January 22, 2016 and April 19, 2016.

Safety Recall on 2017 Honda Civic

Honda has issued a safety recall on the 2017 Civic due to an issue with the right half-shaft.

According to Cars.com, the right half-shaft was improperly heat-treated, decreasing its strength. This malfunction can result in the half-shaft breaking which could prevent the engine from moving the vehicle.

The error can also cause the vehicle to roll away from its intended spot if the parking break is not fully engaged.

The Honda Civic recall affects approximately 5,400 vehicles in the U.S.

Notification of Honda Civic Recall

Honda will not begin notifying drivers for TWO WEEKS. This poses a danger for Honda owners traveling during the holiday season.

Honda Recalls 800,000 Odyssey Minivans

Honda has recalled 800,000 Odyssey Minivans from 2011-2017 due to loose seats.

The second row of seating in the vehicles may tip forward if not secured properly when placed back after being taken out, or if adjusted.

If moderate to heavy breaking occurs, the seats will move. This increases the risk of injury, and Honda has in fact received 46 reports of injuries due to this malfunction.

Honda does not have a permanent solution. They are simply posting an instructional sheet and video online showing customers how to properly reinstall their seats.

Odyssey owners will not be notified until a solution is found, so many drivers will be driving around with these seats that shift around.

Mitsubishi Mirage Recall – Non-Inflating Airbags

Mitsubishi is recalling nearly 84,000 Mirage models from 2014-2018 in the U.S.

A safety restraint computer error is reading road vibrations or a flat tire as a sensor error, thus turning off the vehicle airbags. So if the computer sensor reads the road as vibrating in the midst of a crash, it would shut off all airbags.

Mitsubishi has not released if any crashes or injuries have occurred due to recall.

Mitsubishi dealerships will reprogram the computer to fix the error, but notices are not going out until next month.

As families are traveling for the holidays, their airbags may not function correctly. Don’t wait to be notified!

General Motors Recalls Trucks Due to Fuel Leak

General Motors is recalling 49,000 trucks worldwide due to a fuel leak.

The recall includes the Chevrolet Silverado and the GMC Sierra 3500 from years 2011-2015.

These vehicles contain dual fuel tanks. The first fuel tank low fuel indicator may become stuck, causing the second fuel tank to overfill the first. This could cause the first fuel tank to expand and touch the drive shaft, creating a hole and potential fuel leak. This increases the risk of fire.

Owners will not begin to be notified until December 18th, ONE WHOLE MONTH from now. This is especially a problem for the holiday season as drivers may be traveling via their cars.

BMW Recalls Over 1 MILLION Vehicles in the U.S.

BMW RECALLS – BMW issued two recalls on over 1 million vehicles in the U.S. over the weekend.

BMW Recall Information

The first recall involved the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve and its heater, and the second recall involved the wires controlling the system of air flow for the heater and air conditioner unit. Both issues caused fires in multiple vehicles over the years, and finally BMW is piecing the information together and taking fault. What were thought to be isolated and unrelated incidents are now discovered to be incidents all due to these PCV valve and heater/air conditioner wiring issues.

Unlike many other vehicle recalls involving issues that caused fire, these fires start when the vehicle is idle for a span of time. However, that span of time can be as long as a few days or as short as a few hours.

The vehicles included in the recall are the 128i from 2008 through 2011; and the 328i, 525i, 528i, 530i, X3. X5 and Z4 from 2007 through 2011.

BMW is expected to begin fixing the issue on December 18th, so owners beware! For over 1 month, your vehicle is at risk of fire.

Kia Soul Recall

Kia is recalling over 300,000 Kia Souls in the U.S. due to steering issues.

Kia Soul Recall Info

The 2014-2016 KIA models had previously been recalled for the same issue and may have been improperly fixed.

The pinion plug may not be secured, and could therefore cause the pinion gear to disconnect from the steering gear. This could cause the driver to lose control of steering, resulting in accident and injury.

The automotive company claims no injuries have been reported in connection to the recall. They plan to notify drivers in November.

Ford Recalls 1.3 Million Trucks in the U.S.

There are major Ford recalls this week, as 1.3 million trucks in the U.S., including 2015-17 Ford F-150 and 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks.

Major Ford Recalls

The issue is with the vehicle doors, where a malfunction with the latch and/or cable is causing the door to be unable to open or close potentially. No accidents or injuries have been reported, however the danger lies in the door appearing closed but actually being open (meaning it could just fling open while driving!), or in the case of an accident the door being unable to be opened by emergency personnel. Also, it’s just a nuisance! Imagine getting locked in your vehicle, or being unable to close your vehicle door.

Ford will notify customers in the next month, but they have not said when the necessary parts will be available at dealers.

This is not Ford’s first issue with car doors either. Since 2016, 5 million Ford vehicles have been recalled for door-related issues. Ford claims this recall is entirely separate from previous ones.

The cost of this particular recall will be $267 million, and Ford projects that between the 2016 recalls and upcoming recalls, they will spend $935 million.
