2013-2017 Audi Q5; 2013-2015 Audi Q7

If this fault occurs, the rollover side curtain air bag and the seat belt pretensioner will be disabled from deploying.

If the rollover side curtain air bags and seat belt pretensioners are disabled, there is an increased risk of injury to the vehicle occupants in the event of a crash that necessitates activation of these safety systems.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will update the ORC software, free of charge.


2017 Acura RDX; 2017 Honda CR-V

Honda is recalling certain 2017 CR-V and Acura RDX vehicles.

The certification labels on the affected vehicles were printed with ink that may be inadvertently wiped away with an alcohol solvent. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.”

If the label information can be wiped away, the operator may not be able to refer to the information, possibly resulting in the vehicle being overloaded, which can increase the risk of a crash.

In the event of a vehicle safety recall, an incorrect production date may prevent owners from determining if the recall affects them, increasing their risk of injury or crash.

Audi will notify owners, and dealers will install an overlay label containing the correct vehicle production date, free of charge.


2017 Jaguar XE

Jaguar Land Rover North America is recalling certain 2017 XE vehicles equipped with a 2.0L diesel engine.

The vehicles have a fuel return hose that may leak. A diesel fuel leak onto the road surface may cause a skid hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. If the fuel leak contacts a hot engine or exhaust component, there would be an increased risk of a fire.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel return hose, free of charge.


2016-2017 Volkswagen CC

Volkswagen Group of America, Inc. is recalling certain vehicles because incorrect front seat head restraints (rests) may have been installed, possibly resulting in the seat occupant’s head being inadequately restrained in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 202a, “Head Restraints.”

If the seat occupant’s head is inadequately restrained in the event of a crash, they have an increased risk of injury.

Volkswagen will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front seat head restraints, free of charge.


2014-2017 Ram ProMaster

Chrysler is recalling certain 2014-2017 Ram ProMaster vehicles.

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


2017 Buick LaCrosse

General Motors LLC is recalling certain 2017 Buick LaCrosse vehicles.

The rear suspension toe-links may have been incorrectly installed, and, as a result, they may loosen and disconnect from the rear suspension system. If a rear-suspension toe-link disconnects, it may cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling certain 2016-2017 Tacoma vehicles. Oil may leak from the area where the rear differential carrier is assembled to the rear axle housing.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the rear differential for oil leakage. Based on the inspection, dealers will either tighten the fastening nuts or replace the fastening nuts and gasket.

2015 Acura TLX

Honda is recalling certain 2015 Acura TLX two-wheel-drive and four-wheel-drive vehicles.

In the affected vehicles, the transmission wire harness connections may have insufficient crimps, and, as a result, the transmission may unexpectedly shift to neutral. If the vehicle unexpectedly shifts to neutral, there is an increased risk of a crash.
