Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has announced its latest recalls, which may affect some Cadillac, Volvo, Chrysler and Mazda vehicles, and some Michelin tires.

2011 Cadillac SRX
Vehicles affected: 2,622
On certain vehicles, in some crashes, the passenger sensing system will turn off the right side roof rail airbag if it senses that the right front seat is not occupied. This differs from the information detailed in the owner’s manual. Although the vehicle meets prescribed standards for side impact protection, failure of the airbag to deploy in a crash where deployment is warranted could increase the risk of injury to an occupant in the right rear seat. Dealers will reprogram the sensing and diagnostic module.

2012 Volvo S60
Vehicles affected: 27
On certain vehicles, a fuel line quick connector may have been incorrectly manufactured and could fail. Should it detach, it could cause engine stalling and a fuel leak. Dealers will replace the high-pressure fuel line assembly.

2011 Chrysler 200
2011 Chrysler Town & Country
2011 Dodge Avenger
2011 Dodge Caliber
2011 Dodge Grand Caravan

Certain vehicles may have been built with a missing or incorrectly-installed steering column pivot rivet, which may not perform as intended in the event of a crash. Dealers will inspect for the steering column rivet presence and alignment, and repair as required.

2011 Michelin Primacy MXV4 205/65R16
2011 Michelin Primacy MXV4 225/55R17
Units affected: 5,447
On certain tires, the letter “P” was incorrectly added as a prefix to the Euro-metric dimension marking. Since the “Max Load” and “Max Pressure” markings on the tires are correct, and the tires pass all certification requirements at the marked loads and pressures, the issue does not affect the safety of the tires. A correction is to be determined.

2008-2009 Mazda3
2008-2009 Mazdaspeed3
Vehicles affected: 45,729
On certain vehicles, the ground terminal of the windshield wiper motor may have been inadvertently bent during vehicle assembly. Over time, this may increase the motor circuit’s electrical resistance, causing the wiper motor to become inoperative. Dealers will install an additional ground harness to the wiper motor.
