Transport Canada issues latest recalls
Ottawa, Ontario – Transport Canada has issued its latest recalls, which may affect some Nissan, Buick and Jeep vehicles.
2007 Nissan Versa
Vehicles affected: 6,129
On certain vehicles, the terminals for the passenger side seatbelt tension sensor harness connector may have been damaged during the manufacturing process. This could result in a loss of electrical continuity, causing the occupant detection system to become inoperative. If this occurs, the airbag warning light will come on, and the passenger side frontal airbag will not deploy in a crash. Dealers will replace the harness connector.
2007 Buick Allure
Vehicles affected: 286
In order to meet government crash testing standards, changes to the side impact protection system were recently introduced into production. These changes could cause damage to the wiring harness that sends the signal to inflate the side airbags. Under certain crash conditions, the side airbags may not deploy. Dealers will install a revised wiring harness that provides a more protected path for the wires.
2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Vehicles affected: 400
Certain vehicles may have daytime running lamps (DRL) that were not properly configured during vehicle assembly and which may not be functional. Dealers will inspect and, if required, update the DRL configuration.
