The Federal Traffic Safety Administration has reported new recalls of new vehicles due to defects that may jeopardize the safety of drivers and passengers, or the operation of affected vehicles.

The models affected by these alerts belong to the Ford, Cadillac, Kia, Toyota, Honda, Hyundai, Izusu, GMC and Nissan brands.

On Ford brand cars, the “recall” refers to Ford Bronco and Ford Ranger, both from 2022, the reason being insufficient adhesion of the windshield, which can lead to its separation.

The Ford 150 BEV, on the other hand, has issues with its low tire pressure warning system that may not turn on when it’s supposed to.

For its part, two Cadillac models, the XT5 2022 and XT6 2022, are having problems sealing a valve in their gas tank. This same problem is indicated for the 2022 GMC Acadia “recall.”

The problem with Kia cars lies in the seat belts, and it affects the 2021-22 Kia Sorento Hybrid and the 2022 Sorento PHEV. This is also the Hyundai Venue problem with its models from 2020 to 2022.

The recall of Toyota cars seems more dangerous and affects the Tundra and Tundra hybrid vehicles, and here the problem is that the axle (axle axle) can break off, creating dangerous conditions.

Honda was affected by this “pickup” GL 1800, model year 2020 to 2022, which is a software problem that can affect the operation of the ignition and thus the operation of the engine.

Meanwhile, the problematic Isuzu is the N-Series, 2022, to which the oil pressure sensor is incorrectly connected, which may affect its important function.

For its part, Nissan warns that the 2020-2022 Frontier and 2020-2022 Titan models have issues with the transmission not being securely attached, which could cause an accident (an unsafe transmission could cause a failure).

The federal agency states that when a “recall” occurs, either by the manufacturer or a government entity, it is because the vehicle in question is understood to present an unreasonable safety risk or because it does not meet minimum safety standards. In these cases, the manufacturer is responsible for repairing the vehicle at no cost to the customer.

Owners of these vehicles are supposed to receive notification from the manufacturer, but if they don’t, they should contact the dealer or someone who sold them the vehicle, or call the NHTSA Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236.
