Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its latest recalls, which may affect some Mercedes-Benz, Nissan and Ford vehicles.
2010-2011 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter
Vehicles affected: 259
Certain vehicles with the optional three-seat bench in the second seating row may have been equipped with seatbelts certified to European standards but which fail to comply with the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS). The seatbelt assemblies are not lockable, as required by the CMVSS, and due to incorrect load limiter mounting, the assembly loop is unable to withstand the forces specified in the standard. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the seatbelt assemblies.
2010 Nissan Frontier
2010 Nissan Pathfinder
2010 Nissan Xterra
Vehicles affected: 2,734
Certain vehicles have a tire placard with French-language wording that does not fully comply with the revised standards of the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. As the variation in the French text is minor, and all required safety information is displayed on the placard, no corrective action is required. This technical non-compliance is deemed to be non-safety-related.
2011 Ford E150, E250, E350, E450
Vehicles affected: 19
Certain vehicles may have been equipped with a driver’s power seat track assembly manufactured with an incorrect worm gear. During unusually high seat and seatbelt loading, such as during a crash, the worm gear may disassemble, which could result in seat assembly movement. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the seat track assembly.
