PASSENGER VEHICLES

2014 Chevrolet Impala

General Motors LLC is recalling certain vehicles manufactured November 15, 2012, to May 27, 2014.

In the affected vehicles, the electronic parking brake actuation arm may not fully retract, causing the brake pads to stay partially engaged. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Systems (FMVSS) No. 135 “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.”

Brake pads that remain partially engaged with the rotors may cause excessive brake heat that may result in a fire.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the electronic parking brake control module with new software, free of charge.


2016 Kia Sorento

Kia Motors America is recalling certain vehicles manufactured October 7, 2014, to January 29, 2015.

Because of an improperly soldered component in the accelerator pedal assembly, the driver may not be able to accelerate the vehicle. If the vehicle is unable to be accelerated, there is an increased risk of a crash.

Kia will notify owners, and dealers will replace the accelerator assembly, free of charge.


2013-2015 Cadillac ATS

General Motors LLC is recalling certain vehicles manufactured April 25, 2012, to February 9, 2015.

In the affected vehicles, the power-operated roof panels auto-close when the non-recessed “Slide” or “Tilt” switches are pressed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards No. 118, “Power-Operated Window, Partition and Roof Panel Systems.”

Because the switch is not recessed, the roof panel may inadvertently be pressed, resulting in unintended auto-closure of the roof panel, increasing the risk of personal injury.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the roof console accessory switch trim plate, free of charge.


2015 Chrysler 200

Chrysler is recalling certain vehicles manufactured March 9, 2014, to December 15, 2014, and equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission. The automatic transmission parking pawl may become contaminated or the park rod may become dislodged or broken. This may prevent the transmission from shifting into the Park position.

If the shift indicator displays “Park” but the park lock does not engage, the vehicle may roll away, increasing the risk of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the transmission. Any transmission found with contamination or a malfunctioning park rod will be replaced, free of charge.

The electronic power steering (EPS) electronic control unit (ECU) may sense a discrepancy in the steering input signals and, as a result, disable the steering power assist. If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will verify the proper operation of the Electronic Power Steering and update the EPS control unit, free of charge.


2013 Jaguar XF

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC is recalling certain XF vehicles manufactured September 11, 2012, to October 8, 2012.

The electronic modules that control the fuel pump may shut down causing the fuel pump to stop pumping fuel. The fuel pump shutdown will result in the vehicle stalling. The vehicle would also lose power-assisted braking and power-assisted steering. Any of these conditions may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Jaguar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and install, if necessary, an additional wiring harness to the in-tank fuel pump, free of charge.


2015 Land Rover LR4, Range Rover, Range Rover Sport

Jaguar Land Rover North America, LLC is recalling certain vehicles manufactured January 6, 2015, to January 23, 2015.

The affected vehicles have wheel lug nuts that may crack and detach from the wheel hub stud. If one or more of the wheel lug nuts crack or detach from the wheel hub, the remaining lug nuts may be unable to keep the wheel secured to the vehicle. If the wheel detaches, loss of vehicle control would result, increasing the risk of a crash.

Land Rover will notify owners, and dealers will replace the wheel nuts with new wheel nuts, free of charge.


2015 Toyota Tacoma

Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing is recalling certain pickup trucks manufactured August 7, 2014, to December 22, 2014.

The affected vehicles may have had their tires and wheels changed to TRD Pro accessory tires and wheels, causing the inflation on the tire placard to be incorrect, which may result in the tire being improperly inflated. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 110, “Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less.”

Improperly inflated tires may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

Toyota will notify owners, and dealers will send a revised tire placard with correct tire size and inflation information to owners, free of charge.


2014 Hyundai Genesis

Hyundai Motor America is recalling certain vehicles manufactured February 21, 2014, to January 24, 2015.

Water may leak into the rear combination lamp assemblies and cause an incorrect gear display on the instrument panel or a delay in the engagement of the selected gear when the vehicle is shifted from Park to Reverse or Drive.

If the incorrect gear is being displayed, the vehicle may move in an unintended direction, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will apply pads to prevent water intrusion into the combination lamp housing, free of charge.


2012-2013 Dodge Durango; 2012-2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee

Chrysler is recalling certain Jeep Grand Cherokee vehicles manufactured September 17, 2010, to August 19, 2013, and equipped with a 3.6-, 5.7- or 6.4-liter engine, and Dodge Durango vehicles manufactured January 18, 2011, to August 19, 2013, and equipped with a 3.6- or 5.7-liter engine.

In the affected vehicles, the fuel pump relay inside the Totally Integrated Power Module (TIPM-7) may fail, causing the vehicle to stall without warning. A vehicle stall increases the risk of a crash.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump relay with one external to the TIPM.


2013-2015 Nissan Altima

Nissan North America, Inc. is recalling certain vehicles manufactured March 1, 2013, to December 31, 2014.

In the affected vehicles, the secondary hood latch may bind and remain in the unlatched position when the hood is closed. If the primary latch is inadvertently released and the secondary latch is not engaged, the hood could unexpectedly open while driving, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.

Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will be instructed to modify the bend angle of the hood actuation lever to eliminate potential interference with the hood inner panel. In addition, dealers will clean and lubricate the latch joint as needed. If significant corrosion is observed, the latch assembly will be replaced.

These repairs will be performed free of charge.


2015 Chevrolet Cruze

General Motors LLC is recalling certain Cruze vehicles manufactured February 4, 2015, to February 9, 2015.

The left-rear or right-rear parking brake cable brackets may not have been properly fastened during the assembly process. As a result, the fastening bolts may back out completely, causing the parking brake bracket to separate and the parking brake to not hold the vehicle in place.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 135, “Light Vehicle Brake Systems.” If the parking brake bracket separates, the parking brake may not hold the vehicle, increasing the risk of a vehicle rollaway and a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the left-rear and right-rear parking brake bracket bolts, tightening them as necessary, free of charge.


2014-2015 Honda Accord; 2015 Honda CR-V

The affected vehicles may have been assembled with improperly torqued connecting rod bolts, which can cause the engine to lose power or leak oil. Loss of engine power may result in a vehicle stall, increasing the risk of a crash. If the engine leaks oil in the proximity of hot engine or exhaust components, there is an increased risk of a fire.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine short block, free of charge.


2015 Dodge Challenger, Charger

O-ring seal and fuel rail crossover hose damage may result in the fuel rail hose connection leaking fuel. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source, such as hot engine or exhaust components, increases the risk of a vehicle fire.

Chrysler will notify owners, and dealers will replace the engine fuel rail injector crossover hose, free of charge.


2001 Honda Accord; 2004 Honda Civic; 2008 Honda Pilot

American Honda Motor Company, Inc. is recalling certain vehicles because upon deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, excessive internal pressure may cause the inflator to rupture.

In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver side frontal air bag, the inflator could rupture with metal fragments striking and potentially seriously injuring the vehicle occupants.

Honda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the driver side frontal air bag inflator in all affected vehicles, free of charge.


2014-2015 Kia Soul

Kia Motors America is recalling certain Soul and Soul electric vehicles manufactured July 21, 2013, to January 8, 2015.

A section of the accelerator pedal may bend and fracture. If the vehicle has a bent or broken accelerator pedal, the driver may have difficulty accelerating the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

2009-2015 Peterbilt 320, 365, 367, 388, 389

PACCAR Incorporated is recalling certain Peterbilt trucks manufactured July 21, 2008, to February 28, 2014.

The front axle tie rod end clamp may be improperly torqued. Undertorqued tie rod end clamp bolts are susceptible to corrosion, which may cause loose bolts to separate, resulting in a loss of vehicle control and an increased risk of a crash.

PACCAR will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front axle tie rod assembly on any vehicle where the factory-installed assembly has not been previously replaced, free of charge.


2006-2016 Peterbilt 357, 365, 367, 378, 379, 382, 385, 387, 388, 389, 567, 579, 587

PACCAR Incorporated is recalling certain trucks manufactured July 25, 2005, to February 26, 2016.

The affected vehicles may be equipped with Tire and Rim Certification Labels that list a tire pressure below the actual correct amount.
