Toyota is recalling a whopping 7.4 million vehicles worldwide, out of which 2.5 million are in USA alone. This recall addresses a potential fire risk and is the second largest recall, after Ford recalled close to 8 million vehicles way back in 1996!

Two of British marquees have recalled their cars for replacement of faulty oil-feed pipes (Lotus Evora - 2011 models using the 3-piece pipe design) & incorrectly calibrated TPMS (Aston Martin V12 Vantage).

Though the number of cars recalled is mere 249, but, it still constitutes a major chunk of these manufacturers.

Maserati now hit by recall bug!


Quote:
Maserati announced a recall for its entire lineup – both the GranTurismo and Quattroporte – due to a software issue with the tire pressure monitoring system. According to the recall notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration released earlier this month, affected vehicles could have low air pressure in a tire that is not alerted to the driver properly.

BMW 7-Series problems haven't yet ended, as the company is now recalling the cars for glitches in the software that may cause the car (with auto tranny) to roll away when parked. Here is link to detailed report on the same:

Toyota woes haven't ended exactly. Its iQ (smallest car) is being recalled for faulty passenger airbags, which may become inoperable or suddenly deploy because of damaged sensor cables. Here is the report:

As far as I came to understand, the problem is actually with the OCS (Occupant Classification System) cable/ sensor which aids in airbag deployment. Well the end result is same
I was wondering how such critical failure escaped through the QA gates especially after their promises of quality post the unintended acceleration issue.

Chinese gets serious on Recall policy!

The Chinese government has released new regulations for vehicle recalls. Starting next year, automakers who fail to recall vehicles in a timely manner can expect to face fines between $80,000 and $160,000. That may be a small sum for an automaker, but the new regulations also allow the government to levy a fine of between one- to ten-percent of the total sales value of the recalled units.

Jeep recalling 1M Grand Cherokees

A recall has been issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration for select model year Jeep Grand Cherokee models and Liberty vehicles over airbag concerns. The recall extends to 2002-2004 Grand Cherokee and 2002-2003 Liberty models, affecting nearly a million vehicles worldwide.

The central recall issue is a faulty sensor in the airbag control module that may result in the inadvertent deployment of front or side curtain airbags while vehicle is in motion. This obviously has the potential to be quite dangerous.

Certainly proves that the big T is no more the epitome of reliability and getting things correct, the first time.
