Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its latest recalls, which may affect some Nissan and Jaguar vehicles.
2008-2009 Nissan Rogue
Vehicles affected: 23,323
On certain vehicles, the steering gear housing cover screw may have been manufactured out of specification, and the axial tension between the screw and gear housing may deteriorate over time. This could allow the screw to gradually loosen, which will cause the steering wheel to exhibit noticeable looseness from the steering assembly. If the vehicle continues to be driven in this condition, the screw may eventually come out of the steering gear housing. If large steering inputs are made with the cover screw missing, the pinion shaft may come out of the steering gear, which could result in a loss of steering control. Dealers will inspect to see if the screw is loose. If so, it will be tightened to the proper specification. In addition, a cover plate will be installed to prevent the screw from possibly coming out of the steering gear.
2010 Jaguar XF
Vehicles affected: 42
On certain vehicles, the fuel transfer pipe in the fuel tank assembly may have been kinked or over-inserted into the fuel delivery module during fuel tank assembly. This could cause fuel starvation even though the fuel gauge reads approximately one-quarter tank of fuel. Dealers will shorten the fuel transfer pipe and insert it into an alternative hole on top of the fuel delivery module.
