Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its latest recalls, which may affect some Hyundai, Ford, Cadillac, Dodge, Volvo, Ferrari and Bentley vehicles.
2006-2008 Hyundai Sonata
Vehicles affected: 31,535
On certain vehicles equipped with an advanced airbag system, the occupant classification system (OCS) installed in the right front seat may misclassify a small-stature adult as a child, and deactivate the passenger airbag. Dealers will verify that the OCS does not recognize a properly-seated adult occupant. After verification, the seat cushion assembly will be removed and reprogrammed.
2008 Ford F250 Super Duty
2008 Ford F350 Super Duty
Vehicles affected: 4,579
On certain 156-inch (3962 mm) wheelbase 4×4 vehicles equipped with a two-piece driveshaft, the fuel tank may become damaged during certain crash conditions, which could allow fuel spillage to occur. Dealers will install a bracket to limit fuel tank movement during a crash.
2005-2007 Cadillac STS
Vehicles affected: 1,825
Certain vehicles fall to confirm with CMVSS 118-Power-Operated Roof Panels. The subject vehicles may exhibit a condition where the sunroof can be closed after the ignition is turned off and the doors are open. This can only occur if the engine is turned off and a front door opened, all within 60 seconds of starting the vehicle. After 60 seconds, this condition will no longer exist. No remedial action is required, due to the unlikelihood of such an occurrence.
2007-2008 Dodge Sprinter
Vehicles affected: 40
On certain Sprinter 2500 vehicles, C-pillar head impact protection pads were omitted during vehicle assembly. This could increase the risk of injury to rear seat occupants during a crash. Dealers will inspect and, if required, install the pads.
2008 Volvo S80
2008 Volvo XC90
Vehicles affected: 7
Certain vehicles may have been inadvertently assembled with incorrect engine mount bolts that do not provide adequate clamping force to the bracket. In the worst case, the aluminum bracket for the engine mount will break, allowing the engine to contact the sub frame, ultimately resulting in reduced engine torque or stalling. Dealers will inspect the engine mount bolts for specific markings and, if required, replace the bracket and bolts.
2005-2006 Ford F150
2005-2006 Lincoln Mark LT
Vehicles affected: 50,026
On certain vehicles equipped with a 5.4-litre three-valve engine, the brake booster vacuum supply hose attached to the intake manifold fitting may swell over time and lose retention force. This could allow the hose to detach from the fitting during an intake manifold backfire. Should this occur, the driver would only have a few brake applications with power booster assist before the vacuum reserve is depleted. When this happens, foundation brake function would be retained, but would require increased pedal effort. Dealers will replace the hose.
2005-2007 Ferrari 612 Scaglietti
Vehicles affected: 17
On certain vehicles equipped with an F1 manual transmission, the clutch sensor may malfunction under normal operating conditions. This could inhibit the proper function of the clutch assembly, making gear shifting very difficult and potentially rendering the vehicle inoperable. Dealers will replace the clutch sensor with an updated version.
2004-2008 Bentley Continental Flying Spur
2004-2008 Bentley Continental GT
2004-2008 Bentley Continental GT Speed
2004-2008 Bentley Continental GTC
Vehicles affected: 529
On certain vehicles, the outer surface of the fuel filter may corrode prematurely. This may cause the filter housing to become porous and develop a fuel leak. Dealers will replace the fuel filter and reposition the retaining clip.
