Honda, Chrysler and Toyota Issue Safety Recalls Involving 77,000 Cars See full artic

Three top automakers are issuing vehicle-safety recalls for items ranging from steering problems to stalling engines to faulty tire-pressure monitoring systems. The recalls involve 77,000 late-model vehicles, according to federal safety officials.

The largest involves 35,000 Civic hybrid models (pictured) manufactured by Honda Motor (HMC) to fix electrical components that could cause headlights to shut off or the engine to stall, according to a notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website.

The recall involves Civic hybrid models from the 2006 and 2007 model years. Honda blames the problem on a faulty voltage converter, and says it has received seven reports of stalling engines and 82 warranty claims related to the problem.

Honda will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles beginning March 18 to bring the cars in for repairs. As is customary with safety recalls, dealers will conduct repairs free of charge. Owners can call the company at 800-999-1009.

Chrysler Group is recalling 20,000 Jeep Wranglers to fix improperly tightened fasteners that may allow both front and rear axles to become loose. In its filing with NHTSA, Chrysler said symptoms of the problem include noise, poor handling and loss of steering.

Vehicles involved include Wranglers from the 2010 and 2011 model years, manufactured from mid-July through mid-September of last year. Chrysler expects to begin the recall action later this month. In the interim, owners can call the company at 800-853-1403.

Finally, Toyota Motor (TM) said it's recalling some 22,000 vehicles from the 2008 through 2011 model years to fix tire-pressure monitoring systems that don't adequately keep tabs on tire pressure. The automaker, in most instances, will reset the systems as part of its recall action.

Pathetic. I go on Yahoo's page and they mention the Toyota recall and not the others.

Funny the article doesn't say when Toyota will notify owners.
