Ottawa, ON. – Transport Canada has released its latest recalls, which may affect some Buick, Chevrolet, GMC and Volkswagen Models.

Buick, Chevrolet and GMC

Units Affected 5,810

Enclave, Traverse, Acadia: 2011-2012

On certain vehicles, if a buildup of snow or ice on the windshield or on the wipers restricts the movement of the wiper arm, the wiper arm nut may loosen and cause that wiper to become inoperative. Loss of windshield wiping capability, should it occur during a rainy/snowy day, may compromise the driver’s ability to see the road and its users, which could result in a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will tighten the wiper arm nuts.

Volkswagen

Units Affected 14

Passat TDI: 2012

On certain vehicles equipped with a 2.0L TDI engine, the diesel fuel filter element may not seal properly and could leak. Diesel fuel leakage may ignite on a hot surface and cause a fire which could result in property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Dealers will replace the fuel filter element.
