Dozens of Automobile Safety Recalls Are Announced


April 28, 2022

According to a recall article published on usatoday.com, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced dozens of auto recalls, including Ford Motor Company's recall of nearly 700,000 motor vehicles.  USA TODAY created a list of auto recalls that involve ten or more motor vehicles.

Audi - Volkswagen Group of America has initiated a recall of specific 2022 A3 and S3 cars due to the child seat anchorage fitting sleeves being erroneously marked with a different sign than what is represented in the car's owner's manual.  The defect caused these motor vehicles to fail the safety requirements outlined in the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety  Standard #225. 

BMW - BMW of North America has recalled some 2022-2023 iX M60, iX xDrive40, and iX XDrive50 motor vehicles because the airbag's display message and indicator light might not light up as necessary due to a software issue. 

General Motors - General Motors, LLC (GM) has recalled some 2015 Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, and Chevrolet Traverse motor vehicles because the driver's airbag inflator might explode when deployed.

GM is also recalling some 2021-2022 Buick Enclave vehicles and 2020-2022 Chevrolet Traverse due to harness connectors being incompatible with electrical terminals and this could prevent the airbags from deploying during an accident.

Ford - Ford Motor Company has issued a recall of some 2020-2022 Super Duty F-250, F-350, F-450, F-550, 2020-2021 Lincoln Navigator, and 2020-2021 F-150 and Expedition motor vehicles due to a defective windshield wiper arm.

Hyundai - Hyundai Motor America has begun a recall of some 2019 Nexo motor vehicles due to a defect that can cause a hydrogen fuel leak during fueling. 

Hyundai is also recalling some 2021-2022 Elantra and 2020 Accent motor vehicles due to defective front driver and passenger-side seat belt pre-tensioners that can explode during deployment. 

Land Rover - Jaguar Land Rover North America has started a recall of some 2016-2017 Range Rover Sport and Range Rover motor vehicles due to the driver's seat belt emergency locking retractor not locking as necessary. 

Lexus - Toyota Motor Company has initiated a recall of some 2022 NX250, NX350, NX350h, and NX450h+ motor vehicles due to a missing spot-welds between the front shock absorber mounting area and the body panels which can cause the front shock absorber to detach from the body panel.

Toyota - Toyota has recalled some Toyota Mirai PRIME, RAV4, Venza, Sienna, 2022 Lexus LX, Lexus NX HEV, Lexus NX PHEV, Toyota RAV4 HEV, 2021-2022 Lexus LS HEV, and 2020-2022 Toyota Highlander HEV vehicles due to defective Skid Control ECU software.

Mercedes-Benz - Mercedes-Benz USA has started to recall some 2020-2022 GLE450, GLS450, 2021-2022 AMG GLE53, 2020-2021 GLE580, GLS580, 2021 AMG GLE63, Maybach GLS600, and AMG GLS63 motor vehicles due to an unsecured electrical ground cable that can overheat.

Mercedes-Benz is also recalling some 2018-2021 CLA-Class, A-Class, C-Class, GLE/GLS-Class, E-Class Coupe/Convertible, E-Class, GLA/GLB-Class, CLS-Class, GLC-Class, and EQC-Class motor vehicles due to a rearview camera display issue caused by a software error. 

Mercedes-Benz has also recalled certain 2021 S500 4Matic and S580 4Matic motor vehicles due to a steering column electrical connector not being properly secured.  This can cause the gear shift to disable and/or cause other safety features to fail. 

Mercedes-Benz has recalled some 2021-2022 Maybach S580 motor vehicles because certain front seat trim parts can detach when the rear airbags are deployed causing an unsafe airbag deployment.  

Nissan - Nissan North America has recalled some 2020 Sentra sedans due to a misaligned right-hand LED headlight. 

Tesla - Tesla has recalled some 2021-2022 Model X sedans due to the right or left front-row side curtain airbags not to deploy when the windows have been lowered. 

Tesla is also recalling some 2020-2022 Model S, Model Y, Model X, and 2017-2022 Model 3 motor vehicles because the vehicles' Boombox feature could "obscure the Pedestrian Warning System sounds."
