This week’s recall recap is full of potential personal injury and fiery death.

If you needed more proof our cars are trying to kills us, here it is. Dodge and Ford are experiencing some interesting electrical and fuel issues while Subarus are leaking brake fluid.

If you own a 2013 Dodge Challenger V6, Chrysler asks you park your car and get it fixed immediately due to an electrical short circuit between the starter motor and solenoid. This short could result in more than your rear tires getting burned up. Yep, fiery death.

On certain 2013 Dodge Challenger vehicles equipped with V6 engines, an electrical short circuit between the starter motor cable assembly electrical terminal and the starter solenoid could result in a vehicle fire without warning, causing possible injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the starter motor electrical cable assembly.

Model Year(s) Affected: 2013

Ford continues to flirt with fire issues in their newer product. This time the Explorer (2013), Taurus (2012), and MKS (2012) get to wear the recall badge of shame. Due to issues in manufacturing, a fuel leak may occur with or without impact, resulting in potential fiery death.

On certain vehicles, the fuel tank may have been manufactured incorrectly. As a result, some of the fuel tanks may not provide the expected strength in the event of an impact, and may leak. A fuel leak may also occur even in the absence of an impact. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire, increasing the risk of injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel tank.

Units Affected: 193
Model Year(s) Affected: 2012, 2013

And finally, Subaru is back on the recall lists, this time due to brake lines that may experience a bad case of rust worm. On 2005 to 2009 Legacy and Outback models, the lines can possibly leak due to the design of the fuel tank protector. If a leak occurs, a driver may lose their brakes, resulting in a crash. Also, fiery death.

On certain vehicles, due to the design of the fuel tank protector, the center and rear brake lines may become perforated due to corrosion. This would cause a leak in the brake system potentially increasing stopping distances, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect vehicles and either apply an anti-corrosion coating to the lines, or replace them as necessary.

Units Affected: 25,732
Model Year(s) Affected: 2005-2009
