Volkswagen recalls more cars: fire risk cited

Volkswagen recalls more cars: fire risk cited

Automotive recalls -- not only have they been cropping up in ample supply this year, many older-model owners have also found themselves swept up under various manufacturer recalls, something that is fairly atypical as far as automotive recalls go. Volkswagen came to the end of 2014 with a couple of recalls of its own. It was just recently announced the auto maker would be recalling 2015 Jettas due to potential issues with the headlights, and now it has recalled even more vehicles.

2015 VW Jettas recalled over headlight troubles

2015 VW Jettas recalled over headlight troubles

Volkswagen is rounding out the end of 2014 with a recall of its own, one that isn't as dire as some of the other recalls we've seen over the course of this year, yet notable for its potential hazards. A little over 25,000 2015 Jetta cars are being recalled due to an issue with the headlights, which may experience troubles if the headlight control module malfunctions. Under the circumstances, turning on the high-beams might cause the low-beam lights to automatically turn off.

Honda expands recall over faulty Takata airbags

Honda, which has already been particularly hard hit over the Takata airbags fiasco, has expanded its recall over the issue, adding 1,252 of its 2015 Crosstour vehicles to the list. In this case, it is the side air bag that could potentially be faulty, leading to possible injuries in the event it deploys improperly during a wreck. According to the NHTSA, the air bag might not inflate to the proper level due to inflator tube issues; fortunately, the auto maker isn't aware of any injuries that have resulted from this potential issue.

Porsche 918 Spyder recalled over chassis issue

Porsche can add its name to the list of auto makers undergoing recalls as of late, with the company initiating a recall of its illustrious 918 Spyder. This is a limited edition model, and of the 918 units produced (hence the name), 205 of them are being recalled. The reason revolves around the chassis, which could be prone to issues due to a fault discovered through internal quality testing. Though the potential for problems exist, no owners have filed any complaints related to it.

Keurig recalls 7m brewers for burning coffee addicts

Keurig recalls 7m brewers for burning coffee addicts

Keurig is recalling more than seven million coffee machines, after in addition to squirting pod coffee into a mug, the brewers also sprayed hot water at users themselves. A single machine, the Keurig MINI Plus, is responsible for the headache, with around 90 owners reporting burns after the water inside overheated and jetted out at them. The fix, so Keurig claims, is simple, and it even insists that owners needn't stop using their brewers while they wait for it - just as long as they're willing to take some basic precautions.

BMW recalls 140k cars over Takata airbags issue

BMW has been swept up into the Takata airbag debacle, announcing that it will recall about 140,000 BMW 3 Series cars in the US. This follows a smaller recall it previously had in certain regions with high humidity levels, something originally believed to be the cause of Takata airbags rupturing with too much force, causing potential injuries and death to drivers. The vehicles being recalled were made from January 2004 through August 2006. This follows recent demands by the NHTSA for a nationwide recall among several auto makers.

Automotive recalls have been extensive this year, and the issues have touched on a variety of systems: brakes, tires, air bags, fuel, and more. A large recall is currently underway over Takata airbags believed to be defective, for example, and GM is still working its way through the massive recalls it has initiated over the past year. Now Harley Davidson has surfaced with its own recall, but the reason is relatively tame in comparison to these other recent auto industry troubles.
