RV & Vehicle Recall Notices

While recall notifications are typically sent by regular mail if you’re not the original owner, the manufacturer likely doesn’t have a way to contact you in the event of a recall. It’s always a good idea to get in touch with the manufacturer or local dealer to provide them with your address. Same goes if you’re the original owner, but have recently moved.

Below you’ll find our May/June 2021 summary of RV recalls followed by vehicle recalls. We typically publish this list the first week of January, March, May, July, September, and November.

If you have an RV or vehicle that is subject to a recall, you should have it repaired right away to ensure it is safe. Please record the VIN or serial number and call your dealer or manufacturer.

Mfg. Recall No.: 21S05

Canadian Units: 8,811

Description: This recall is for certain vehicles that had the driver-front and/or passenger-front airbag inflator replaced after a collision or theft. An obsolete airbag may have been installed.

On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the driver-front airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. If the airbag inflator ruptures, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants or cause damage to the airbag assembly, preventing its proper function. If the vehicle is involved in a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the airbag inflator could rupture and create a risk of injury.

Correction: The company will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a Ford dealer to inspect the driver and/or passenger airbag inflator, or module and replace it if necessary. Note: The Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. This recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk. It is expected that all airbag inflators will be replaced before their function would be affected.

Description: On certain trucks, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger-front airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. If the airbag inflator ruptures, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants or cause damage to the airbag assembly, preventing its proper function. If the truck is involved in a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the airbag inflator could rupture and create a risk of injury.

Note: This is an expansion of Mazda Recall 2118A (Transport Canada Recall No. 2018-039). 

Correction: Mazda will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their truck to a dealer to replace the passenger-front airbag inflator. Note: The Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. This recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk. It is expected that all airbag inflators will be replaced before their function would be affected.
