Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has released its latest recalls, which may affect some Saab, Hyundai, Chrysler, Audi, Volkswagen, Chevrolet and Mercedes-Benz vehicles, and some Tiffin and Open Range recreational vehicles.

2005-2006 Saab 9-2X
Vehicles affected: 1,038
On certain vehicles, the front lower control arms could corrode due to exposure to humid environments and road re-icing chemicals. Over time, corrosion could cause thinning and perforation of the steel, which could allow the control arm to fracture near the forward pivot attachment to the chassis. Dealers will inspect the front lower control arms and, depending on the degree of corrosion exhibited, either rustproof or replace them. Owners may call 1-877-919-7222 to locate the nearest Saab-approved repair facility.

2012 Hyundai Veloster
Vehicles affected: 1,180
The daytime running lamps incorporate a feature that temporarily deactivates them on the side of the vehicle where the turn signal lamp is activated. On certain vehicles, one or both of the daytime running lamps could remain deactivated after repeated cycling of the turn signal switch. Dealers will update the instrument panel module software.

2012 Chrysler 200
2012 Chrysler Town & Country
2012 Dodge Charger
2012 Dodge Durango
2012 Dodge Grand Caravan
2012 Dodge Journey
2012 Jeep Grand Cherokee

On certain vehicles equipped with a 3.6-litre engine, debris in the cylinder block from the manufacturing process could cause connecting rod bearing and crankshaft bearing damage. Abnormal engine performance may be noticed and in some cases, the engine could fail. Dealers will replace the engine assembly.

2010-2012 Audi A3

2009-2012 Volkswagen Jetta

On certain vehicles equipped with a 2.0-litre TDI diesel engine, the fuel injection lines could crack and leak fuel. Dealers will install vibration dampers on all four fuel injection lines. On some vehicles, depending on the date of manufacture, the #2 fuel injection line will also be replaced.

2011-2012 Chevrolet Corvette
Vehicles affected: 218
On some vehicles, the rear hatch hinges may not meet the load requirements of the Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. In a crash, the rear hatch could separate from the vehicle. Dealers will replace the hinges.

2011 Tiffin Allegro Bus
Vehicles affected: 10
On certain motorhomes equipped with a Cummins engine, the V-band clamps used to connect the inlet and outlet cone sections to the diesel oxidation catalyst/particulate filter housing include a T-bolt which can fracture and fail when subjected to stress or load. This may cause the clamp to loosen and the sections disconnect, which could vent hot exhaust gases ahead of the tailpipe. If both clamps fail, the housing could detach completely. Cummins will install updated V-band clamps.

2011 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class
2011 Mercedes-Benz ML-Class

On certain travel trailers, a supporting crossmember was incorrectly modified during vehicle assembly, and as a result, the main frame I-beam could develop stress cracks and fail. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, reinforce the frame crossmember.
