Read on for the models in the latest recall and what you can do about it.
Three models from Audi face a recall. The semiconductor in the engine control unit could cause the engine to stall from a short circuit. The affected models are:
- Audi A6 Sedan (2022)
- A4 Sedan (2022)
- Q5 and Q5 Sportback
Only around 70 vehicles could have this problem, but drivers are still advised to have their cars checked. A dealer will replace the engine control unit for free if it’s part of the recall.
The latest Ford recall includes more than 25,000 vehicles spanning several Ford models.
- 2019-2020 Mustang vehicles with 5.0L engines and manual transmissions
The Powertrain Control Module can send a false signal to the modules controlling the reverse camera, reverse light, and driver-assist features, which may disable all these functions. After inspection, dealers will update the PCM software for free. Vehicles in the recall include:
- 2016 E-Series
- 2017 and 2019 F-450
- 2021 F-350
- 2021 Transit
- 2022 F-Super Duty F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550 and F600
- 2023 E-Series vehicles
While the vehicles are mechanically still good, the wheels’ Safety Certification Labels are missing. This information includes the tire size, rim type, and tire pressure values for both the front and rear axles. The omission fails to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard.
If you drive any affected vehicles, take them to a dealer where they will replace the Safety Certification Label, free of charge.
The GM recall is relatively severe, as the front passenger seat might have an incorrectly welded hook attachment. This lets the front seat separate from the inboard track of the seat frame. The affected models are:
- 2022 GMC Canyon
- 2022 Chevrolet Colorado with a manual passenger seat
Take your vehicle to a dealer for inspection. The dealer will replace the cushion frame for free if faulty.
The following vehicles might have an issue with the primary hydraulic brake line assembly not being tightened correctly. This can result in a brake fluid leak, but dealers will tighten the brake pressure switch, bleed the brake system, and top off the brake fluid.
- 2022 Chevrolet Silverado 4500HD, 5500HD, and 6500HD
Honda is recalling just over 200 CR-V models from 2020 over an inaccurate fuel gauge reading. According to the NHTSA, the factory didn’t appropriately secure the clip for the absorber inside the fuel tank.
This can result in unexpectedly running out of fuel and stalling, increasing the risk of a crash. If you drive a 2020 CR-V, take your car to a dealer. They will replace the fuel tank free of charge.
