Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its latest recalls, which may affect some Nissan, Mitsubishi, Chrysler and Dodge vehicles.
2009 Nissan Sentra
Vehicles affected: 1,282
On certain vehicles, an incorrectly-manufactured brake master cylinder may allow brake fluid to slowly leak into the brake booster assembly, ultimately resulting in a reduction in braking capability. Dealers will inspect and, if required, replace the brake master cylinder assembly.
2008-2009 Mitsubishi Lancer
2008-2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution
2009 Mitsubishi Lancer Sportback
Vehicles affected: 22,440
On certain vehicles operated in areas of heavy road salt usage, the front impact sensors may corrode between the sensor bushing and the sensor bracket. Over time, the corrosion may cause a crack to develop in the sensor case, allowing water intrusion and a short circuit of the sensor. This could result in delayed deployment of the driver and passenger front airbags in a vehicle crash. Dealers will replace the front impact sensors.
2009-2010 Chrysler 300
2009-2010 Dodge Challenger
2009-2010 Dodge Charger
Vehicles affected: 1,172
On certain vehicles, the front wheel spindle nut may have been omitted during vehicle assembly. The nut retains the hub, rotor and wheel assembly. This could allow the wheel assembly to separate from the vehicle while driving. Dealers will inspect for the presence of the front wheel spindle nut, and repair any vehicle missing the nut.
2007 Dodge Nitro
Vehicles affected: 9,270
On certain vehicles, high usage of the variable pause windshield wiper function (delay mode) may eventually affect the primary wiper function, rendering the wiper system inoperable. Dealers will add an external relay and update the wiper control software.
