Nissan, Honda, Toyota and Subaru Issue Recalls

Nissan, Honda, Toyota and Subaru have issued several recalls since Thursday. Here is a summary of the recalls:

2011 Nissan Rogue

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, about 7,400 Nissan Rogue models from the 2011 model year may have poorly installed electric power steering assist controls units. “This may cause additional stress on the solder of the terminal to the circuit board resulting in the solder cracking and separating completely from the circuit board,” says NHTSA. If the system detaches, the power assist steering won’t work, and steering will require a lot more effort.

Honda Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CR-V, Pilot, Acura 3.2 TL and Acura 3.2 CL

This Honda recall expands an earlier recall for 2001 to 2003 Honda and Acura vehicles whose airbags could overinflate and explode. In a press release, Honda states that it has “also determined that approximately 640 affected driver's airbag service parts were sold for installation in vehicles for collision repair or other vehicle service.” The automaker doesn’t know which models got the parts, so it’s adding about 603,000 vehicles to the recall. There have been several incidents related to the faulty airbags, but Honda doesn’t go into detail about what happened.

The following models are affected: 2001 and 2002 Honda Accord, 2001 to 2003 Civic, 2001 to 2003 Odyssey, 2002 and 2003 CR-V, 2003 Pilot, 2002 and 2003 Acura 3.2 TL and 2003 Acura 3.2 CL.

2011 and 2012 Toyota Sienna

If you own a 2011 or 2012 Toyota Sienna, there is nothing mechanically wrong with your minivan, but NHTSA says it doesn’t meet federal standards. All vehicles must display “the correct vehicle capacity weight as the rated load for the combination of cargo and occupants.” If a Sienna doesn’t have the correct weight capacity, the tires could be overloaded. It is possible that they could fail and cause an accident.

2012 Subaru Impreza, 2012 Subaru Legacy and 2012 Subaru Outback

Subaru is recalling 31,959 Impreza, Legacy and Outback models, all of which are from the 2012 model year. These models may have a faulty brake master cylinder that could increase the amount of time it takes to stop. If this happens, NHTSA says, “The driver might misjudge the amount of brake pedal travel required to achieve the desired stopping distance. This could occur unexpectedly and without prior warning, increasing the risk of a crash.”

Who should I contact?

If you own one of the affected vehicles, the automaker will contact you to bring your vehicle in to the dealership to be repaired free of charge.
