chrysler recallThree major automakers have launched recalls recently. Since many of the issues associated with the campaigns may lead to crashes or injuries, we thought you would like to know more about each recall and how to protect yourself and your loved ones.

The first recall announcement you should be paying attention to was launched by Chrysler. According to the reports, the company recalled all units of the 2001 and 2002 Chrysler Sebring and Dodge Stratus vehicles. Recalled units come with beige interiors.

According to the US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recalled vehicles were previously repaired over an issue associated with the use of an incorrect part. The incorrect part may fail to prevent the passenger side sun visor from detaching once the frontal passenger air bag is deployed in a crash. Depending on how the visor is folded, it may be detached and propelled rearward, increasing the risk of an occupant injury.

Chrysler has announced that impacted vehicle owners will be notified in the near future. Dealers will have the correct tether straps installed in the recalled vehicles to make sure the sun visor is retained for free.

Honda Recalls Acura Vehicles Over Fire Risks

The NHTSA has also reported that Honda has recalled all units of the 2015 Acura MDX 2WD and MDX 4WD vehicles, the 2016 Acura MDX 4WD vehicles, th 2015 and 2016 Honda Odyssey vehicles, and the 2016 Honda Pilot 2WD and 4WD vehicles. The company decided to launch the recall after learning that the recalled vehicles come with fuel tanks that may have been manufactured with insufficient welds that could eventually separate, allowing fuel to leak out. If that’s the case while the vehicle is in use and the fuel comes in contact with an ignition source, a fire may break out.

Honda has indicated that the fuel tanks will be replaced entirely for free.

Volkswagen Recalls Audi Vehicles Over Crash Concerns

Regulators have pointed out that Volkswagen has launched a recall that impacts all units of the 2007 through 2009 Audi A8 and S8 vehicles because the sunroof glass on the impacted vehicles may have not been secured correctly to the sunroof frame. If that is the case, the glass may detach unexpectedly becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.

Volkswagen has announced that all impacted vehicle owners will be contacted this month. All impacted vehicles will have additional adhesive installed between the sunroof glass and frame for free.

Do not ignore either of these recalls if you were impacted. Stay safe.
