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 March/April 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.

Description: On certain vehicles equipped with a 2.0 L NU GDI or 2.4 L Theta II MPI engine, an engine compartment fire could occur while driving.

In some situations, you may notice any of the following symptoms: there could be an abnormal knocking noise from the engine; the check engine light and/or the oil pressure warning light could turn on; you may smell fuel, burning or smoke; or you may notice oil leaks. If you continue to drive the vehicle with these symptoms, the engine could fail and/or a fire could occur.  An engine failure can cause a sudden loss of power with an inability to restart. An engine compartment fire can create a risk of injury. A sudden loss of engine power could increase the risk of a crash.
Note: For the Optima model, only the Optima Hybrid is affected by this recall.

Correction: Kia will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer for an inspection of the engine and engine compartment. The dealer will inspect for fuel and/or engine oil leaks, perform an engine test and make any repairs, including engine replacement, if necessary. Kia will also perform a Knock Sensor Detection System (KSDS) software update free of charge, once it is available for your vehicle. This update will detect and prevent engine damage from worn connecting rod bearings.

Recall No.: 2020-617

Company: Mercedes-Benz

Models: 2013-2019 B Class, CLA Class & GLA Class

Mfg. Recall No.: 4694202

Canadian Units: 40,126

Description: On certain vehicles, the power steering control unit may corrode. If this happens, moisture could enter the control unit and cause it to fail. This could cause a loss of power steering assist. A loss of power steering assist would result in a sudden increase in steering effort, especially at low vehicle speeds. This could increase the risk of a crash.

Note: This recall only affects vehicles that were originally sold, or ever registered in areas of heavy road salt usage (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador).

Correction: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to replace the power steering control unit.

 

Recall No.: 2021-041

Company: Mercedes-Benz

Models: 2018-2021 B Class, C Class, CLA Class, CLS Class, E Class, G Class, GLA Class, GLC Class, GLE Class, GLS Class, GT Class, S Class, SL Class & SLC Class

Mfg. Recall No.: 5499615

Canadian Units: 41,731

Description: On certain vehicles, a software problem could cause the rearview camera image not to appear on the central display. Canadian regulations require the rearview image to display when the transmission is shifted into reverse gear. A rearview camera image that does not display could reduce a driver’s ability to see behind the vehicle while backing up. This could increase the risk of a crash.

Correction: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to update the head unit software.

 

Recall No.: 2021-045

Company: Mercedes-Benz

Models: 2017-2020 C Class

Mfg. Recall No.: 9190309

Canadian Units: 3,038

Description: On certain C-Class cabriolet models equipped with the PRE-SAFE system, the front seat belts may not retract completely to their storage position. Canadian regulations require seat belts to retract fully when not in use. If the seat belt does not fully retract, the occupant may find the operation of the seat belt inconvenient and not wear it.  This could increase the risk of injury in a crash. 

Correction: Mercedes-Benz will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to inspect the function of the front seat belt retractors and adjust the dampening foam, if necessary.

 

Recall No.: 2021-020

Company: Nissan

Models: 2013-2015 Pathfinder

Mfg. Recall No.:

Canadian Units: 29,876

Description: On certain vehicles, the stop lamp switch may not have been installed correctly. Over time, this could cause the stop lamp relay to fail and stick in the on position. If this happens, engine power may be reduced and the brake lights will stay on. Additionally, the vehicle may be started and shifted into gear without pressing the brake pedal. The ability to shift the vehicle out of park without depressing the brake pedal and/or starting the engine without depressing the brake pedal could increase the risk of a crash. Brake lights that stay on could cause other road users not to recognize when the vehicle is braking. This could increase the risk of a crash.

Note: This recall replaces Transport Canada recall 2016-264. Vehicles that were repaired under that recall require a second inspection.

Correction: Nissan will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer for an inspection of the stop lamp switch and relay. If the stop lamp relay was deleted during a previous repair, no further action is required. For all other vehicles, the dealer will adjust or move the stop lamp switch and replace the stop lamp relay.

 

Recall No.: 2021-038

Company: Tesla

Models: 2012-2018 Model S
2016-2018 Model X

Mfg. Recall No.: SB-21-21-001

Canadian Units: 9,023

Description: On certain vehicles, the internal memory for the media control unit (MCU) could run out of storage capacity over time. If this happens, the centre display can turn off while driving and cause some of the car’s systems not to work properly. This includes the rearview camera display, defrost/defog control settings and exterior turn signal lighting. A rearview camera image that does not display could reduce a driver’s ability to see behind the vehicle while backing up. A windshield that cannot be defrosted/defogged could reduce visibility. Turn signals that do not work could cause a following driver not to recognize that a vehicle ahead intends to turn.  These conditions could increase the risk of a crash.

Correction: Tesla advises owners to ensure that their vehicle software is up to date. Tesla will notify owners by email, including when parts are available to schedule service to upgrade the internal memory in the MCU.

 

Recall No.: 2021-017

Company: Volkswagen

Models: 2012-2014 Beetle

Mfg. Recall No.: 69BC

Canadian Units: 6,464

Description: 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: Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to replace the driver-front airbag.
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.
