More than 275,000 vehicles have been recalled by Ford, Jeep, Mercedes-Benz, and Nissan. Check here for recalls.

Last week, the American National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) announced a number of recalls, including those for over 175,000 Ford Broncos with seat belt problems and over 89,000 Jeep Cherokees with steering column faults.

Insecure webbing in more than 2,600 child safety seats and a potential corrosion issue with more than 1,500 winches mounted on pickup trucks led to their recalls.

Mercedes-Benz is recalling its S-Class and EQS cars.

In order to prevent a potential crash, Mercedes-Benz is recalling 7,558 of its 2022 EQS 450, EQS 580, 2023 Maybach S 580, Maybach S 680, and S 580e models. The problem may disable the electronic stability programme, electronic brake force distribution, anti-lock brake system, acceleration slip regulation, and electronic stability control systems (ABS, ASR, ESP, and EBD), as well as the vehicle speed display. A crash may become more likely as a result of the error.

Mercedes-Benz stated in a safety report that it is aware of 96 field reports in the U.S. from March 23, 2022, to May 12, 2023, which may be connected to this fault. However, the business is not aware of any recorded crashes, injuries, or property damage in connection with this issue.

Recall of Nissan Leaf models due to brake line corrosion

According to Nissan, which filed a safety report with the NHTSA, 758 of its electric 2023 Leaf vehicles are being recalled because the right-hand brake tubes may have been harmed during manufacture and could corrode, perhaps leading to a hole in the brake line and a brake fluid leak, which would increase the risk of an accident.

The right-hand brake tube will be inspected by dealers free of charge, and they will replace it if necessary. Letters informing owners should be sent on July 7. Nissan’s customer support number is 1-800-867-7669 and is available to owners. PC976 is Nissan’s number for this recall.

EV VinFast

999 of VinFast Auto, LLC’s 2023 VF8 electric vehicles are being recalled. The business stated in a safety recall report that a software mistake might cause the multifunction head unit (MHU) display to go blank and not provide vital safety information, such as the speedometer or warning lights, which could increase the risk of a crash.

735 of the 999 possibly impacted cars are under VinFast’s custody and control, 111 are in customer hands, 153 are in fleet service. VinFast is aware of 18 recorded instances on 14 vehicles, whether they are in customer hands or are being serviced by a fleet. Eight of the 18 incidents occurred with the car in park, five occurred with the car out of park, and five incidents did not indicate the shift selector lever’s position.

Starting on May 25, VinFast will offer a free over-the-air software update. Letters informing owners should arrive in the mail on May 29, 2023. VinFast customer care can be reached at 1-833-503-0600 by owners. The recall’s VinFast number is VPAC-74. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety can also be contacted by owners.

Recalled Ford Broncos have a seat belt problem

The first-row seat belt latch plates on Ford’s 2021–2023 Bronco cars with the 5-Door body type may be challenging to reach from their stowed position, prompting Ford to recall 175–550 of these vehicles. Ford stated in a safety recall notice submitted to the NHTSA that individuals who have trouble gaining access to the seat belt latches may not be wearing their seat belts, raising the risk of harm in an accident.

Owner notification letters are anticipated to be mailed on or around June 30. Free of charge, dealers will upgrade the front passenger and driver seatbelts to include a sliding clip latch stop. Call 1-866-436-7332 to reach Ford customer support. The recall’s Ford number is 23C16.

Chrysler issues a steering column recall for Jeep Cherokee vehicles.

According to a safety recall report filed with the NHTSA, Chrysler is recalling 89,372 of its 2022-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2021-2023 Jeep Grand Cherokee L vehicles because a steering column intermediate shaft that was improperly assembled could disconnect from the u-joint and result in a loss of steering control, which could lead to a vehicle crash.
