Ford, Hyundai, Kia, And Subaru Recall Vehicles Over Crash, Visibility Issues

Last week, the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reported Ford, BMW, and Hyundai recalls impacting more than 391,000 vehicles nationwide. The largest recall comes from Ford. Over 382,000 Explorers and Lincoln SUVs are impacted and in need of camera repairs. 

Ford Issues Two Recalls Over Visibility, Braking Issues

The automaker stated that the first recall involves 2020 through 2023 Ford Explorers and Lincoln Aviators as well as the 2020 through 2022 Lincoln Corsairs that come with back-up camera systems potentially fitted with faulty processors. Because the monitor goes blue while drivers are backing up due to the processor defect, the lack of visibility increases the risk of an accident. 

Only vehicles with the 360-degree cameras are affected.  

The second recall impacts 800 2023 Ford Broncos that can experience a leak in the anti-lock brake system valve. According to the manufacturer, the leak can cause unexpected shifts in brake pedal time. This issue will change how much the driver must press the brake pedal to activate the brakes, making accidents more likely. 

Kia, Hyundai Recall Tied To Fuel Leak Risk

The sister automakers Kia and Hyundai are recalling 2022 Hyundai Santa Fe Hybrid Plug-ins over a manufacturing error that causes fuel leak at the tank’s seam. If the leak occurs near an ignition source, the vehicle can catch fire. 

Impacted car owners will receive recall notifications on March 26.

Subaru Recalls Thousands Of Vehicles Over Incorrect Owner’s Manuals

Subaru is recalling over 4,600 2022 Subaru WRX cars after learning that the owner’s manuals come with incorrect instructions regarding adjustments to the “High Beam Assistance” function. To prevent visibility issues, the company will send impacted owners an updated owner’s manual insert in the mail. 

If you have one of the recalled vehicles or are concerned your car might have been impacted by a recall, do not hesitate to contact the manufacturer or search the  NHTSA database, where you can insert your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN) in the search feature to look for any open recalls.
