Recall No.: 2018-180
Company: Land Rover
Models: 2015-2017 Discovery Sport
2014-2017 Range Rover Evoque
Mfg. Recall No.: N197
Canadian Units: 6,384
Description: On certain vehicles originally sold, or currently registered in areas of heavy road salt usage during winter months (Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland & Labrador), the bolts that attach the power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and fracture. This could allow the power steering gear assist motor to move, causing the belt to slip which could result in a loss of power steering assist. A loss of power steering assist would require additional steering effort which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will replace the aluminum mounting bolts with coated steel bolts and will apply a corrosion-preventative sealer around the gear housing and connecting bolts. If a bolt is found to be broken or breaks during the course of the repair, a replacement steering gear will be installed.



 
Recall No.: 2018-215
Company: Mercedes-Benz
Models: 2008-2009 Smart Fortwo
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 7,028
Description: On certain vehicles, the rear insulation mat within the engine compartment might deform, deteriorate and loosen, allowing it to contact hot exhaust system components.

Recall No.: 2018-217
Company: Mercedes-Benz
Models: 2012-2017 GL-Class, GLE-Class, GLS-Class & ML-Class
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 1,627
Description: On certain vehicles equipped with the Active Curve System (ACS), the oil in the ACS’s reservoir could start foaming under certain dynamic driving situations in combination with an oil level below minimum. The oil foam could leak out of the oil reservoir through the vent holes in the sealing cap and spray onto hot surface components of the exhaust system. This could increase the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the ACS reservoir for proper oil level and replace the sealing cap with an updated part.



 
Recall No.: 2018-166
Company: Mitsubishi
Models: 2004-2006 Lancer
Mfg. Recall No.: SR-18-005
Canadian Units: 3,172
Description: On certain vehicles, the passenger frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the passenger airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant.
Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger side frontal airbag inflator with a new, non-ammonium-nitrate-based inflator. Note: This campaign supersedes recall 2015-236 and involves vehicles that previously received an inflator under that recall.



 
Recall No.: 2018-276
Company: Suzuki
Models: 2013 Kizashi & SX4
Mfg. Recall No.: 121
Canadian Units: 1,540
Description: On certain vehicles, a circuit board inside the Transmission Control Module (TCM) may develop a crack, preventing it from controlling the transmission properly. This could result in reduced vehicle speed and poor acceleration, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage.
Correction: Dealers will replace the TCM with a reprogrammed unit.



 
Recall No.: 2018-149
Company: Tesla
Models: 2012-2016 Model S
Mfg. Recall No.: SB-18-32-002
Canadian Units: 4,275
Description: On certain vehicles, the bolts that attach the power steering gear assist motor to the gear housing may corrode and fracture. This could allow the power steering gear assist motor to move, causing the belt to slip which could result in a loss of power steering assist. A loss of power steering assist would require additional steering effort which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Tesla service centres will replace the aluminum mounting bolts with coated steel bolts and will apply a corrosion-preventative sealer around the gear housing and connecting bolts. If bolts are found to be broken or break during the removal process, Tesla will also install a new steering gear.

Recall No.: 2018-192
Company: Volkswagen
Models: 2006-2007 Passat
Mfg. Recall No.: 69Q8
Canadian Units: 3,339
Description: On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, could eventually degrade the propellant contained in the driver frontal airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. As a result, if the vehicle were involved in a collision that warrants airbag deployment, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants and the airbag assembly could be damaged, preventing proper function. These issues could increase the risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will replace the driver frontal airbag inflator. Note: Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected. Additional Note: This recall replaces Volkswagen recall 69M8 (TC 2016-065). Volkswagen vehicles that were not repaired under recall 69M8 (TC 2016-065) require repair under this recall.
