Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its latest recalls, which may affect some Dodge and Ford models, and some Michelin tires.
2010 – 2011 Michelin LTX AT2 LT265/70R17
Units affected: 750
On certain tires, the tire identification number information displayed is incorrect. Two symbols that identify the manufacturer and the two symbols that identify the tire size have been switched in location with the load index/speed symbol information. This technical non-compliance is not deemed to be safety-related and no corrective recall action is required.
2008-2011 Dodge Ram 1500, 2500 and 3500
Vehicles affected: 49,800
On certain vehicles, the left outer tie rod ball stud could fracture. The recall affects certain 2008-2011 Ram 2500 and 3500 4×4; Ram 3500 cab chassis 4×2 and 4×4; and 2008 Ram 1500 Mega Cab 4×4 vehicles. Additionally, other 2003-2008 Ram vehicles may have received the affected tie rod as a replacement during service and so are also included in the campaign. Although this condition tends to occur when making a tight turn during low-speed parking lot-type manoeuvres, tie rod failure could result in a loss of directional stability. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the left outer tie rod end.
2007 Ford Five Hundred
Vehicles affected: 24
On certain vehicles, the fuel filler neck may not have been welded correctly to the fuel tank during the manufacturing process. As a result, the weld may not provide the expected strength and, in the event of a crash, could result in a fuel leak. Dealers will replace the fuel tank.
2002 Ford Excursion
2005 Ford F250 Super Duty
2004-2007 Ford F350 Super Duty
2007-2011 Ford Ranger
Vehicles affected: 5,815
On certain 2011 Ranger vehicles, the multi-function switch installed during vehicle assembly could malfunction and fail, resulting in a loss of turn signal, tail lamp, hazard warning and/or stop lamp function. Other vehicle models may have received the affected switch as a replacement part during service and are therefore involved in the campaign. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the switch.
