FORD ISSUES TWO SAFETY RECALLS IN NORTH AMERICA
DEC 31, 2014 | DEARBORN, MICH.

Ford is issuing two safety recalls in North America. No accidents or injuries are attributed to either of these conditions. Details are as follows:

Ford issues safety recall for certain 2014 Ford Escape and 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles in North America for fuel pump issue

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 12,200 2014 Ford Escape and 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles in North America (actual 12,205) for an issue with the nickel plating on the fuel pump, which may cause the pump to seize. If the fuel pump seizes, a vehicle may not start or may stall while driving. An engine stall without warning while driving increases the risk of a crash.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2014 Ford Escapes built April 15, 2014 to May 8, 2014 at Louisville Assembly Plant and certain 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles built April 21, 2014 to May 15, 2014 at Louisville Assembly Plant.

There are 9,038 vehicles in the United States and federalized territories, 3,074 in Canada and 93 in Mexico.

Dealers will replace the fuel delivery module at no cost to the customer.

Ford issues safety recall for certain 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles in North America for push-button keyless ignition switch location issue

Ford is issuing a safety recall for approximately 13,500 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles in North America (actual 13,574) to move the push-button keyless ignition switch location. Due to the switch's close proximity to other controls, occupants are inadvertently shutting off the engine while driving. If the push-to-start button is inadvertently actuated while driving, the restraint system may not perform as intended in a crash, increasing the risk of injuries.

Ford is not aware of any accidents or injuries related to this condition.

Affected vehicles include certain 2015 Lincoln MKC vehicles built Aug. 20, 2013 to Sept. 9, 2014 at Louisville Assembly Plant. There are approximately 13,500 vehicles in North America, including 11,144 in the United States and federalized territories, 2,033 in Canada and 397 in Mexico.

Dealers will replace the gearshift module with one that has the push-to-start button in a different location and reprogram the powertrain control module.

The MKC one for the button placement is interesting, I notice that they changed the location versus the MKZ, which has it at the top, to the MKC's original placement down at the bottom. To their credit, all the photo assets for MKC on Lincoln's website have already been updated/corrected with the new Engine Start button placement.

Are people going to now inadvertently push the transmission's "S" button? That's obviously less problematic than accidentally shutting the car off though.

SUMMARY:
Subaru of America, Inc.

Default Jeep 'trailer hitch' recall repair rates lag amidst reports of new death

Click the image to open in full size.

Quote:
The problem with exploding fuel tanks in the 1993-1998 Jeep Grand Cherokee and 2002-2007 Jeep Liberty in some rear collisions continues to be a problem for FCA US, formerly Chrysler. The campaign to fix the utility vehicles was first announced in June 2013 after 51 claimed fatalities, and the fixes reportedly began in January 2014. However, there continue to be new deaths blaming the problem in unrepaired models, according to The Detroit News, citing data from the Center for Auto Safety.

The automaker initially refused NHTSA's pressuring to conduct a recall because the models met applicable crash standards when they were manufactured, but eventually, there was a compromise to inspect and fix about 1.56 million Jeeps. With the fuel tank located between the rear axle and bumper, the unusual fix was to install a trailer hitch for extra protection. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration later agreed that the change would provide added safety in lower to medium speed crashes, but not high-speed crashes.

The most recent fatality, according to The Detroit News, occurred on a Michigan freeway in November 2014 when a pregnant woman in a 2003 Liberty was rear-ended when traffic slowed. Her Jeep impacted the vehicle in front, rolled over and a fire resulted. The family reportedly plans to file a lawsuit against FCA.

At issue has been the rate at which the vehicles are being fixed. In July 2014, the automaker estimated it could have all of the vehicles repaired by March 2015 thanks to additional hitch supplies. But by November, NHTSA claimed that only three percent of the recalled models had been fixed.

FCA says it continues to work to notify owners, though. According to Chrysler spokesperson Eric Mayne to Autoblog, "We are processing approximately 1,200 vehicles per day. Every owner who schedules service is receiving service. As of Jan. 8, that total was 193,490." The company has also mailed out over two million notifications to owners, more than the number officially called in. Given the age of these Jeeps, many of them have had multiple owners, and historically, the older a vehicle is, the less likely the recall fixes are to be carried out. FCA is currently creating a video urging people to have the hitch installed to be released soon.

TOYOTA RECALLS CERTAIN 2014-2015 MODEL YEAR PRIUS V VEHICLES

TORRANCE, Calif. Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., today announced plans to conduct a safety recall of approximately 5,000 Model Year 2014-2015 Prius V vehicles.

In the involved vehicles, the front passenger seat is equipped with an Occupant Classification System (OCS), which activates / deactivates the passenger seat air bag system depending on the weight of the seat occupant. There is a possibility that some OCS's may not have been calibrated properly during the vehicle manufacturing process. Under some conditions, this could result in no deployment of an airbag, increasing the risk of an injury to a front seat passenger in the event of crash.

Toyota is not aware of any injuries or fatalities caused by this condition.

Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail. Toyota dealers will recalibrate the Occupant Classification System properly.

Detailed information is available at www.toyota.com/recall and by calling Toyota Customer Service at 1-800-331-4331.

TOYOTA RECALLS CERTAIN 2011-2012 MODEL YEAR AVALON VEHICLES

TORRANCE, Calif., January 28, 2015 Toyota Motor Sales, U.S.A., Inc., today announced plans to conduct a safety recall of approximately 52,000 Model Year 2011-2012 Avalon sedans.

In the involved vehicles, cargo could contact one of the audio system subwoofer wires located inside the trunk, and move the wire out of its normal position. If one of these wires contacts the metal frame of the subwoofer, it may result in an intermittent short circuit. If this occurs, the subwoofer could overheat, increasing the risk of a fire.

Toyota is not aware of any crashes, injuries, or fatalities caused by this condition.

Owners of the involved vehicles will receive a notification by first class mail. Toyota dealers will provide a repair for the audio system. Until the remedy is available, as a precaution, Toyota dealers will disconnect the rear subwoofer.

Detailed information is available at www.toyota.com/recall and by calling Toyota Customer Service at 1-800-331-4331.
