The Passenger Vehicle Recalls for October & November 2017, are as Follows

  • Lexus HS 250H (2010)

On certain vehicles, the holding plate of the hybrid transaxle assembly may have been crimped improperly during assembly. This could result in the plate to wear, potentially causing irregular movement around the motor shaft, which could allow the plate to contact the electric motor coil and lead to a short circuit. This would illuminate warning lights and warning messages in the instrument cluster, and cause the vehicle to enter a fail-safe mode resulting in reduced motive power. In some cases, the hybrid system could shut down, resulting in loss of motive power while the vehicle is in motion, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage.

Correction:  Dealers will replace the hybrid transaxle assembly with a new one. Recall Details


  • Chevrolet Colorado (2015)

On certain vehicles, the second stage of the driver frontal airbag may not deploy properly in certain high speed crashes. If the vehicle were to be involved in a high speed crash that triggers the second-stage deployment of the driver frontal airbag, the second stage of the inflator may not fill the airbag as completely and as quickly as designed, which could increase the risk of injury to the driver.

Correction: Dealers will replace the driver frontal airbag module. Note: This is an expansion of recall 2016-102 Recall Details


  • Subaru IMPREZA WRX / STI, IMPREZA WRX (2015)

On certain vehicles equipped with a factory installed subwoofer located inside the trunk, luggage in the trunk could come into contact the subwoofer wire and move the wire out of its normal position. This could damage the integrated circuit in the subwoofer amplifier and could create a continuous electrical current, resulting in the subwoofer overheating, and would increase the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property.

Correction:  Dealers will inspect, and repair as necessary. Recall Details


  • AUDI A4, A5, ALLROAD, Q5 (2013 2014 2015 2016)

On certain vehicles, the contacts within the electrical connector of the auxiliary heater could corrode. This could cause the auxiliary heater to fail and/or cause the wires to overheat and melt.
