Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has released its latest recalls, which may affect some Chrysler, Nissan, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, General Motors, Volvo, Mitsubishi, Audi and Jaguar vehicles, and some Learning Curve child seats.
2008 Chrysler 300
2008 Dodge Charger
2008 Dodge Magnum
Vehicles affected: 450
On certain vehicles, incorrectly-manufactured rear axle hub nuts could loosen with time, and allow the half-shaft to disengage from the wheel hub assembly. This could cause the vehicle to lose propulsion. Dealers will replace the rear axle hub nuts.
2007-2008 Nissan Sentra
Vehicles affected: 13,241
On certain vehicles, an incorrectly-manufactured brake master cylinder may allow brake fluid to slowly leak into the brake booster assembly. Brake fluid leakage could ultimately result in a reduction of braking capability. Dealers will inspect and, if required, replace the brake master cylinder assembly.
2008 Ford Edge
2008 Lincoln MKX
Vehicles affected: 42
On certain vehicles, the fuel tank may contain a manufacturing flaw of a dimple in the bottom at a spot weld. This dimple could result in fuel weepage or dripping from the tank. Dealers will inspect the tank and, if a dimple is found, will replace the fuel tank.
2008 Learning Curve True Fit C630C
Vehicles affected: 1,921
On certain infant/child seats, the pictogram portion of the French label affixed to the side of the seat contains incorrect occupant weight range information. The label indicates a range for the rear-facing mode of 10.5 to 29 kg (23 to 65 lbs), and for the forward-facing mode as 2.3 to 10 kg (5 to 22 lbs). The weight ranges had been inadvertently reversed; the correct range should read rear-facing from 2.3 to 10 kg (5 to 22 lbs) and forward-facing from 10.5 to 29 (23 to 65 lbs). Owners will be provided with updated labels and installation instructions.
2007-2008 Mercedes-Benz B-Class
2006-2008 Mercedes-Benz C-Class
2006 Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class
2007 Mercedes-Benz CLS-Class
2003-2007 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
2007-2008 Mercedes-Benz GL-Class
2007 Mercedes-Benz M-Class
2007-2008 Mercedes-Benz S-Class
2005-2006 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class

Certain vehicles may have been programmed with incorrect software calibration data during the manufacturing process. This could affect various functions, including a fuel pump that may not receive a signal to disconnect in case of a crash; the maximum speed limiter may not be activated; the fuel gauge readings may be incorrect; a stuck fuel-level sensor may not be displayed in the instrument cluster; the speedometer may be out of tolerance and may indicate inaccurate vehicle speed; and the Check Engine Light may illuminate incorrectly. Dealers will reprogram the electronic control module.
2008-2009 Volvo C30
2008-2009 Volvo C70
2008-2009 Volvo S40
2008-2009 Volvo V50
Vehicles affected: 265
On certain vehicles, an improperly-manufactured power steering return hose may suddenly rupture, causing a fluid leak, with unexpected loss of steering power assist. Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the power steering return line assembly.
2004-2005 Mitsubishi Galant
Vehicles affected: 1,906
On certain vehicles, the ignition key interlock cable may allow the interlocking cam to fall forward and allow the ignition key to be removed from the ignition when the gearshift mechanism is not in the Park position. If the driver does not shift into Park before removing the key, and fails to engage the parking brake, the vehicle could roll. Dealers will affect repairs.
2008 Chevrolet 1500 AWD Express
2008 GMC 1500 AWD Savana
Vehicles affected: 13
Certain all-wheel drive vehicles may have been assembled with an incorrectly-manufactured transfer case that could cause early failure of the drive chain. If the chain breaks, shifting the transmission into Park may not keep the vehicle stationary. Dealers will inspect the transfer case code and, if necessary, replace the transfer case.
1997-2003 Audi A8
Vehicles affected: 824
On certain vehicles equipped with a five-speed automatic transmission, a locking cable may move out of position over time. With the cable out of position, the shifter can be moved out of Park position even if the key is not in the ignition lock. This could allow the vehicle to roll. Dealers will modify the locking cable system.
2009 Jaguar XF
Vehicles affected: 390
On certain vehicles, the rear safety belt D-ring assemblies may not rotate freely around the safety belt anchorage mounting bolt. If not assembled properly, the outboard rear safety belt D-ring assemblies may require higher-than-expected force before rotation occurs, or may not rotate. In the event of a medium to high vehicle impact, the inability of the D-ring to rotate may limit the performance of the rear safety belt systems. Dealers will inspect the rear safety belt system and repair accordingly.
