Audi, Chevrolet, GMC, Honda Among Latest String of Recalls

audi chevrolet gmc honda among latest string of recalls

The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has listed its’ automotive recalls for June 2 through 9 and the list includes Audi, Chevrolet, Ford, GMC, and Honda vehicles for various types of recalls.

Volkswagen Group of America, Audi’s parent company, is recalling 72 2022 A4 sedan, Audi A6 sedan, Q5, and Q5 Sportback vehicles for a flawed semiconductor unit inside the engine control unit (ECU), which could potentially short-circuit and cause the vehicles’ engine to stall.

Ford is recalling slightly over 25,000 2019-2020 Mustangs with the 5.0-liter Coyote V8 engine equipped with manual transmissions. The Power Control Module (PCM) can possibly send an erroneous fault signal message to the modules controlling the reverse light, reverse camera, and driver-assist features, which could potentially disable all of these features.

Ford is also recalling more than 5,000 F-Series and E-Series trucks from 2016, 2017, 2019, 2021, and 2022 for having faulty Safety Certification Labels which have omitted tire size, rim type, and tire-pressure values. These labels are typically found on vehicles’ rocker or door panels, and let owners know the proper tire, rim, and pressure ratings associated with the vehicle.

General Motors is recalling 1,534 2022 GMC Canyon and Chevrolet Silverado pickup trucks equipped with manual passenger seats. The front passenger seat may contain a bad weld, allowing the hook attachment to separate from the inboard track of the seat frame.

GM is also recalling 39 2022 model year Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD truck chassis cabs. The primary hydraulic brake line assembly pressure-sensor fitting may not be tightened properly, which could result in a brake fluid leak, as well as possibly introduce air into the hydraulic brake system.

Honda is recalling 212 2020 model year CR-Vs for an improperly secured clip for the absorber inside the fuel tank, which may detach, and can cause an inaccurate fuel gauge reading.

    " after the first time they looked at the labels, when they wanted to check pressures." Of the two, out of every 1,000 owners, that check tire pressure, one will check the sidewall of the tire for pressure spec. The other will inflate until TPWS light is out or until 'it looks right'.

      My process: a) Find the door jamb sticker and scrupulously note the tire pressure figures printed thereon b) Round up to 33 psi. My tires get inflated to 33 psi*. (Not sure why I do both steps, but I always do. If I ever get a Tesla or a semi-truck [or a Tesla semi-truck] my process needs to change big-time.) *Historically for my vehicles (and "typically" in my mind until 3 minutes ago) the vehicle sticker is 31 and the max on the sidewall is (was) 35 ["I'm not quite as dumb as I look" -- "Well, how could you be"]. Just checked and the sidewall "max" pressures on my current vehicle fleet are insanely high.

    More massive, politically-directed, gov't spending, just in time, now that we've officially made it to a recession!

  • Sgeffe Bronco looks with JLR “reliability!”What’s not to like?!
  • FreedMike Back in the '70s, the one thing keeping consumers from buying more Datsuns was styling - these guys were bringing over some of the ugliest product imaginable. Remember the F10? As hard as I try to blot that rolling aberration from my memory, it comes back. So the name change to Nissan made sense, and happened right as they started bringing over good-looking product (like the Maxima that will be featured in this series). They made a pretty clean break.
  • Flowerplough Liability - Autonomous vehicles must be programmed to make life-ending decisions, and who wants to risk that? Hit the moose or dive into the steep grassy ditch? Ram the sudden pile up that is occurring mere feet in front of the bumper or scan the oncoming lane and swing left? Ram the rogue machine that suddenly swung into my lane, head on, or hop up onto the sidewalk and maybe bump a pedestrian? With no driver involved, Ford/Volkswagen or GM or whomever will bear full responsibility and, in America, be ambulance-chaser sued into bankruptcy and extinction in well under a decade. Or maybe the yuge corporations will get special, good-faith, immunity laws, nation-wide? Yeah, that's the ticket.
  • FreedMike It's not that consumers wouldn't want this tech in theory - I think they would. Honestly, the idea of a car that can take over the truly tedious driving stuff that drives me bonkers - like sitting in traffic - appeals to me. But there's no way I'd put my property and my life in the hands of tech that's clearly not ready for prime time, and neither would the majority of other drivers. If they want this tech to sell, they need to get it right.
  • TitaniumZ Of course they are starting to "sour" on the idea. That's what happens when cars start to drive better than people. Humanpilots mostly suck and make bad decisions.
