Description: On certain vehicles, the Brembo electric parking brake callipers could contain an improperly manufactured internal gear that could break under load. If the gear broke, the parking brake would not release and could result in an inability to move a parked vehicle. If the gear broke prior to full parking brake engagement, the parking brake could have less holding force than intended, which could result in unintended vehicle movement, increasing the risk of injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Tesla Service Centres will replace the defective park brake callipers. Note: The regular braking system is not affected by this issue.



 
Recall No.: 2017-231
Company: Toyota
Models: 2016-2017 Tacoma
Mfg. Recall No.: SRC R35
Canadian Units: 15,016
Description: On certain vehicles, the seal between the rear differential and the axle housing could degrade due to contact variation. This could result in leaking differential oil. If the vehicle is operated in this condition, damage to the differential could occur and could potentially result in noise, reduced motive power and rear axle lockup. These issues could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the rear differential for leaks. If no leaks are found, fastening nuts will be re-tightened. If leaks are found, the differential gasket will be replaced, and new differential fastening nuts installed. Note: This applies to vehicles equipped with automatic transmission and non-locking differentials only.

Description: On certain vehicles, the fuel pump flange may develop fine cracks or fissures, which could result in a fuel leak. Leaking fuel, in the presence of an ignition source, could lead to a fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will apply a butyl protective film to the fuel pump flange. If cracks are present, the fuel pump flange will be replaced. Note: This is an expansion of recall 2016-443.



 
Recall No.: 2017-256
Company: Volkswagen
Models: 2012-2014 Passat
Mfg. Recall No.: 23W5
Canadian Units: 10,106
Description: On certain vehicles, an underbody heat shield may not be long enough to protect the right drive half-shaft grease boot from heat. Over time, this could lead to a grease leak from the boot. If leaking grease comes into contact with heated surfaces of the exhaust system and/or diesel particulate filter (DPF), it could lead to a fire potentially causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will install a revised heat shield and certain vehicles will have the upper boost hose replaced.
