2010 Chrysler 300
2010 Dodge Challenger
2010 Dodge Charger
2010 Dodge Ram
2010 Jeep Commander

Certain vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission may have been built with a Wireless Ignition Node (WIN) module that exhibits binding of the solenoid latch. This may result in a condition where the ignition key can be removed from the WIN module prior to placing the shifter in Park, which could result in unintended vehicle movement. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the WIN module.

2010 Dodge Caliber
Vehicles affected: 1

The vehicle may have been built with an incorrect door lock rod in the right front door, which could unlatch the door when the window is rolled down. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the lock rod.

2010 Mazda B-Series
Vehicles affected: 520

On certain vehicles, if the parking brake shoes are frozen to the drum, the right rear parking cable may disconnect when it is released. If this occurs, the next application of the parking brake pedal may have extended pedal travel and may not fully apply the parking brake shoes. The parking brake may not securely hold the vehicle as a result. Dealers will repair the affected vehicles.

2010 Subaru Legacy
2010 Subaru Outback
Vehicles affected: 1,588

On certain vehicles, a crack can occur in the continuously variable transmission (CVT) cooler hose, resulting in transmission fluid leakage and illumination of the malfunction indicator lamp. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the hose.

2010 Infiniti QX56
2010 Nissan Armada
2010 Nissan Frontier
2010 Nissan Pathfinder
2010 Nissan Titan
2010 Nissan Xterra
Vehicles affected: 2,759

The lower control link assembly has cylindrical collars forming the inboard attachment points to the chassis, but on certain vehicles, the collars may contain welds that do not meet strength specifications. If the weld separates, the collar can open and slip over the mounting bolt and bushing assembly, which may change the wheel camber and potentially affect vehicle handling. Dealers will repair the affected vehicles.

2007-2008 Lamborghini Murcielago
2007-2008 Lamborghini Murcielago Roadster
Vehicles affected: 37

On certain vehicles, stress generated by fuel moving inside the fuel tank during acceleration and accompanied by vertical vibration could cause detachment of spot welds holding the fuel pump support inside the fuel tank. A slow fuel leak could develop at the detached spot weld. Dealers will replace the fuel tank.

2008-2010 Braun Chrysler Town & Country
2008-2010 Braun Dodge Caravan
Vehicles affected: 51

On certain vehicles, during conversion, the chassis is raised and the floor lowered to accommodate the wheelchair accessibility features. Due to this modification, the rear spring hats come closer to the rear tires, and in certain driving situations, the tires may touch the hats, which may damage the tire over time. Also, on certain vehicles, the fuel pipe comes closer to the rear left tire due to the modification, which may cause the tire to touch the fuel pipe, potentially causing tire damage over time. Dealers will repair affected vehicles.

2010 Ford Escape
2010 Ford Fusion
Vehicles affected: 3

On certain vehicles, the automatic transmission park rod guide retention pin may not have been properly installed. As a result, the park rod guide may become displaced, preventing the transmission park pawl from engaging when shifted into Park. This may allow vehicle movement. Dealers will repair affected vehicles.

2010 Suzuki Equator
Vehicles affected: 94

The lower control link assembly has cylindrical collars forming the inboard attachment points to the chassis, but on certain vehicles, the collars may contain welds that do not meet strength specifications. If the weld separates, the collar can open and slip over the mounting bolt and bushing assembly, which may change the wheel camber and potentially affect vehicle handling. Dealers will repair the affected vehicles.

2009-2010 Lexus LS 460
2009-2010 Lexus LS 460L
2010 Lexus LS 600H
2010 Lexus LS 600HL
Vehicles affected: 140

On certain vehicles, a programming change of the steering control electronic control unit (ECU) for the variable gear ratio steering system can cause the steering wheel to become off-centre by up to 90 degrees. This may occur after the driver has fully turned the steering wheel in one direction, and then quickly attempts to turn it back to the centre position. Dealers will replace the steering control ECU.

2010 Cadillac SRX
Vehicles affected: 50

On certain vehicles equipped with a 2.8-litre V6 engine, if low-octane (regular) fuel is used instead of the high-octane (premium) fuel required as stated in the owner’s manual and on the fuel filler door, the combination of regular fuel and aggressive driving may induce pre-ignition. If this occurs, the driver will hear a pinging or knocking sound from the engine. If the vehicle continues to be driven after the onset of this noise, a connecting rod or piston may break, resulting in engine failure. Dealers will reprogram the engine control module.

2011 BMW X5
2011 BMW X6
Vehicles affected: 13

Certain vehicles equipped with 20-inch wheels and tires may have a tire information label that says the vehicle is equipped with 19-inch wheels and tires. This poses no safety risk because the tire pressure between the two is very similar. The manufacturer will provide new labels to owners.

2007 Dodge Caliber
2007 Jeep Compass
Vehicles affected: 5,500

On certain vehicles, the accelerator pedal pivot bearing bushings may dislodge from their pockets, causing the accelerator pedal to bind or stick. Even though these vehicles are equipped with a “smart brake technology” which will override the accelerator, the risk of a collision still exists. Dealers will inspect and replace the accelerator pedal assemblies if necessary.

2007-2010 Jeep Wrangler
Vehicles affected: 29,000

On certain vehicles, the right and left inner fender liners could contact the brake tubes, resulting in a partial loss of braking at the affected wheel. Dealers will inspect and repair affected vehicles.

2008-2009 Chrysler Town & Country
2008-2009 Dodge Grand Caravan
Vehicles affected: 15,300

On certain vehicles equipped with power sliding doors, the wiring harness may have been routed improperly and may chafe on the lower sliding door hinge bracket. In some instances, this could result in a fire within the sliding door. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, repair or replace the harness.
