PASSENGER VEHICLES

2015-2016 BMW M3, M4

BMW of North America, LLC is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 M3 sedan vehicles manufactured May 29, 2015, to August 4, 2015. The affected vehicles have a driveshaft with a slip-joint that may not have been filled with grease. As a result, the slip-joint may fail over time.

If the slip-joint fails, there could be a loss of power to the rear axle and the vehicle could stop moving, increasing the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the driveshaft, replacing it as necessary, free of charge.


2016 Subaru Legacy, Outback

Subaru of America, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2016 vehicles manufactured October 24, 2015, to November 17, 2015. Due to the improper tightening of the securing nuts, the drive shaft may separate from the rear differential.

If the drive shaft detaches from the rear differential, it may strike the fuel tank and result in a fuel leak, increasing the risk of a fire.

Subaru will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the fastening nuts and tighten or replace them as necessary, free of charge.


2016 Ford F-650 SD

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2016 F-650 trucks manufactured July 29, 2015, to September 3, 2015. The affected vehicles may have been built with an incorrect park, reverse, neutral, drive, manual (PRNDM) steering column, instead of reverse, neutral, drive, manual (RNDM) steering column. If the vehicle has the incorrect steering column, is parked on a hill, the PRNDM and pawl may fracture due to being overloaded.

If the park pawl fractures, the vehicle may unexpectedly move, increasing the risk of a crash.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will replace the PRNDM steering column with the correct RNDM steering column, free of charge.


2015 Nissan Rouge

Nissan North America, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2015 Rogue vehicles manufactured February 10, 2015, to May 13, 2015. In the affected vehicles, due to a problem with the shift selector knob, it may be possible to shift out of the park position without depressing the brake pedal. As such, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 114, "Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention."

If the shift selector can be moved out of the park position while the brake pedal is not depressed, the vehicle may unexpectedly roll, increasing the risk of a crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the shift selector knob, as necessary, free of charge.


2013-2015 Hyundai Genesis Coupe

Hyundai Motor America is recalling certain model year 2013-2015 Genesis Coupe vehicles manufactured December 28, 2011, to April 6, 2015, equipped with manual transmissions. In the affected vehicles, if the differential and the suspension rear crossmember were not properly aligned during vehicle assembly, the bolts that secure the differential may loosen.

If the rear differential loosens from its mounting position, the driveshaft may disconnect from the differential, resulting in a loss of propulsion and an increased risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will verify the proper assembly of the differential, free of charge.


2013-2014 Dodge Dart

Chrysler Group LLC is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Dodge Dart vehicles manufactured February 27, 2012 to January 23, 2014, and equipped with either a 2.0L or 2.4L engine. In affected vehicles, engine oil from the vacuum pump may seep into the brake booster, damaging a component within the brake booster.

Internal damage to brake booster could result in a loss of brake assist, lengthening the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake booster grommet for the presence of oil. If no oil is found, the vacuum tube assembly will be replaced. If oil is found, the vacuum pump, vacuum tube assembly, brake booster and master cylinder will be replaced, free of charge.


2010-2011 Ford Fusion; Mercury Milan

Ford Motor Company is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Ford Fusion vehicles manufactured July 21, 2008, to March 4, 2011, and 2010-2011 Mercury Milan vehicles manufactured July 23, 2008, to December 10, 2010. The affected vehicles have fuel vapor canisters whose purge valves may not operate properly resulting in abnormal pressure changes in the fuel tank.

The pressure changes may cause the tank to crack and leak fuel. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will update the vehicle power train control modules and inspect the vehicle for any diagnostic trouble codes for this issue and perform a leak test on the Canister Purge Valve (CPV). The fuel tank will be inspected for cracks. The CPV and fuel tank will be replaced as necessary, free of charge.
