Honda recalls 137 cars over stalling and fire risks

Honda recalls 137 cars over stalling and fire risks

Honda has announced plans to recall 137 vehicles across three different models, the reason being due to a single issue which could manifest in two ways: the cars could stall, causing a potential crash, or they could leak oil, which could ignite and cause a fire. Fortunately, and unlike some recent recalls we've seen this month, it only affects a small number of cars, the owners of which will be notified of the issue later on this month for servicing.

Chrysler recalls continue: ignition switch troubles hit 703k cars

Chrysler recalls continue: ignition switch troubles hit 703k cars

Chrysler has issued multiple recalls this year over different automotive troubles, and it doesn't appear that'll be ending any time soon. Suffering a similar problem seen last year with General Motors, Chrysler has recalled about 703,000 vehicles over potential problems with the ignition switch, which could slip out of position, something that can cause a car to stall, among other things. This issue proved deadly when it affected GM's vehicles, and it has previously affected some of Chrysler's own cars.

Hyundai Genesis cars recalled over potential water leak

Hyundai Genesis cars recalled over potential water leak

Hyundai is back with another auto recall, this one due to a possible water leak and the electrical problems it could cause. This follows the auto maker's Hyundai Elantra recall from earlier this week, which was made due to problems with the electric power steering (it might stop working). This new problem, which affects some of its newest Genesis vehicles, is arguably less serious than the sudden loss of power steering, but it could cause problems with shifting.

Nissan expands hood latch recall with 640k more cars

Nissan expands hood latch recall with 640k more cars

Nissan has expanded a previous recall to include about 640,000 more vehicles, the reason being due to a potentially faulty hood latch that could allow the hood to fly upwards onto the windshield when the operator is driving. This includes some of the auto maker's newest Altima sedans, and brings the recall total -- including the previous recall -- to nearly 1.1 million cars across the globe. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently released documents related to the recall.

2015 Land Rovers recalled over faulty lug nuts

2015 Land Rovers recalled over faulty lug nuts

Land Rover is recalling a relatively small number of its newest vehicles, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed. The reason differs from the various other auto recalls we've seen so far this year, and concerns the lug nuts (which, of course, keep the wheel on the car). Says Jaguar, the lug nuts on select recently manufactured 2015 Land Rovers could crack and come apart from the bolt, the result of which could cause the wheel to detach and the car to crash.

Chrysler reveals (another) recall: all Hellcats affected

Chrysler reveals (another) recall: all Hellcats affected

If you've been paying attention, you will have noticed a pretty serious trend over the past couple months: automotive recalls. We've seen quite a few this year already, but Chrysler is quickly gaining all the attention with its number -- sometimes back-to-back -- of recalls. Today brings yet another recall, marking the third from the auto maker in five days. This one affects Chrysler's Hellcats...all of them. The maker is recalling all of its SRT Hellcats because their fuel could start leaking.

Hyundai Elantras recalled: power steering troubles cited

Hyundai Elantras recalled: power steering troubles cited

Hyundai has revealed plans to recall approximately 263,000 of its Hyundai Elantra and Elantra Touring cars, all of them located in North America. The reason revolves around the power steering, which is prone to failure and could potentially leave drivers with a lot of difficulty turning the wheel -- a hazard should the loss happen during on-road operation. The oldest vehicles affected are of the 2008 model year, while both the 2009 and 2010 model years have also been hit.

Chrysler expands recall to include 467k SUVs

Yesterday Chrysler revealed plans to recall about 26,000 Chrysler 200 sedans over a fairly serious problem with their transmissions, and now it has announced plans to expand a recall from last year, adding about 467k SUVs to the number of potentially faulty vehicles. This follows a previous recall that took place in September for the same stalling problem (which has now been linked to the fuel pump relay); about 189k SUVs were recalled then, and with this latest recall, the total number jumps to in excess of 656,000 cars.

Chrysler recalls 26k cars due to transmission issue

Chrysler recalls 26k cars due to transmission issue

Chrysler is back with another recall this year, this one concerning its new Chrysler 200 sedans specifically. The problem is a serious one, though arguably not as serious as whatever is causing Jeeps to catch on fire: a transmission problem could cause the car to roll away after it fails to properly shift into park. The auto maker says it has received five complaints from owners who could not get their cars to shift into park. The majority of the affected vehicles are located in the United States.

Cadillac recalls 67k ATS sedans to fix sunroof troubles

Cadillac recalls 67k ATS sedans to fix sunroof troubles

If you're the proud owner of a Cadillac ATS sedan, you might soon be the slightly inconvenienced owner of a Cadillac ATS sedan. General Motors has revealed that it will be recalling about 67,000 of the vehicles, though thankfully the problem is far less troublesome than many of the vehicular issues we've seen crop up in recent months. The sunroof in select vehicles can end up closing with only the slightest touch of the control, something that (thankfully) isn't dangerous, but certainly annoying.
