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!

  • Bryan Raab Davis I briefly dated an Australian fellow who was mad for Aspires; one of his better characteristics, if I’m honest.

  • ToolGuy • Not sure who you get when you call the "Company phone" number listed on the recall report, but confident that it ISN'T Ferrari (someone either screwed up or made a conscious exception; recall might need a recall; where is my excellence in government that all of you are funding?).• 99% of them are fine.• On later models, additionally, a message will also appear on the vehicle’s dashboard that reads as follows: “Brake fluid level low, Go to dealer slowly”. That right there is classic.• Anyway, this is what happens when you build to a price point... (ba dum tsh!)
  • Art Vandelay And what a giant pile of sh!t ths new format is. Great job guys, way to run off the last of the die hards.
  • Theflyersfan If you ever want a review on a 2022 Mazda MX-5 GT RF, I'll be more than happy to type up a few thousand words and add in some great pictures in front of Churchill Downs for y'all!In a nutshell, I agree with this review. I didn't have a chance to try the Recaro seats because the only test drive available was with another GT that someone backed out in buying so it was being used as a demo. But from what I was told, if you're larger than a 38 waist or taller than 5'10", it gets tight. But with the standard seats, and I'm 5'10" and maybe 20 pounds from the 38 waist, I fit fine. Now getting in and out with the roof up after shoulder surgery (especially leaving the surgery center with most of the right arm under a nerve block) is the total opposite of graceful!!! The look on the nurse's face when the MX-5 pulled up and I'm partially wrapped up like a mummy was priceless.I've had mine since the middle of April and have already put 6,700 miles on it, including round trips from Louisville to Chicago and the Philadelphia suburbs. Averaged 38-39 mpg at a steady 75 mph, and it wasn't a torture chamber. The metal top helped a lot. The standard seats are a bit thin on padding, and there was a bit of squirming by around hour 8 on the Philly drive, but it's possible. But even though this design was released in 2015, I still get compliments from total strangers at stoplights, carwashes, gas stations, restaurants, etc. The Soul Red Metallic paint just makes the car pop. I wish it was available with the Terra Cotta leather (the gray above is available with it), and that it didn't have the standard all in black, because it gets thermonuclear in there with the top down and the sun beating on you, but a minor quibble. But it's just fun. Pure driving fun. The best stick shift in any car today. Solid brakes, excellent handling, a sane amount of power to where you aren't going to get into anything reckless and stupid. After a 12+ hour day at work, there's nothing better than dropping the top and driving the 20 minutes home with the better than I thought it would be Bose stereo playing Moby into my ears through the headrest speakers. Mazda has already announced there will be an NE model so I can't wait for that. It'll be interesting how they will keep the weight down with the expected changes to eke more MPG out of what is already an efficient car.
