2014 Mercedes S-Class Recalled Due to Seatbelt Issue.

The recall affects a total of 290 S-Class units in the US, with the cars being produced between April 11, 2013 through October 14, 2013.

Quote:
To be more precise, the front seat belt anchor in the affected vehicles may not be installed properly and could come loose in the event of on accident. This, of course, would means that the occupant(s) may not be properly secured.

Accura has announced a recall for the 2014 RLX due to improperly tightened rear suspension bolts that could come loose and increase the risk of a crash. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has yet to formally issue a recall notice for the RLX, but Acura says that a total of 7,387 RLX sedans are affected, which seems to include markets outside of the US as there have only been 4,456 of the sedans sold through November.

Chrysler recalls AWD 300,Charger, Ram 1500 over ZF transmission.

Quote:
The output shaft on the eight-speed automatic transmission supplied by ZF to Chrysler for the AWD versions of the 300, Charger and Ram 1500 is apparently prone to fracture. That in the end could leave the vehicle without power and could, according to the NHTSA investigation, increase the chance of a crash. The vehicle could also roll away if even if left in Park without the handbrake applied.
That's why Chrysler is calling in 4,194 examples of those three models from the 2013 model year.

MSN-US has reported recall of 2013-2014 Lincoln MKZ Hybrid, 2011-2012 Volvo S60 & 2013 Nissan NV200, for problems with transmission, oil pressure sensors & steering. The link to their report:

http://editorial.autos.msn.com/blogs...0-nissan-nv200

Details:

1. Ford is recalling 7,153 Lincoln MKZ sedans for faulty transmission sensors that can lock the vehicle in park. The sensor may read the gear selection incorrectly as neutral when it is really in park, & let the driver engage the drive position without stepping on the brake. However, the software will recognize the fault and shift the transmission back into park and apply the handbrake.

2. Volvo is recalling 30,929 2011-2012 S60 sedans to fix oil pressure sensors that may not alert the driver to low oil pressure. As per the company, the oil sensors that would normally flash an alert on the instrument panel were not activated, & therefore the drivers won't know their engines were low on oil.

3. Nissan is recalling seven 2013 NV200 vans to fix steering column parts that can detach, & result in a loss of steering. As per the company, the seven cargo vans were taken off the assembly line for inspection, & had their steering assemblies taken apart, but workers did not put them back together correctly.

BMW Recalls 50,000+ Bikes.

BMW Motorrad North America issued a voluntary recall for 50,184 motorcycles manufactured between 2005 and 2012.

BMW motorcycles affected by this issue are the 2005-2011 R-models, 2005-2012 K-models, 2010-2011 S1000RR models, and 2006-2010 HP2 machines.

Tesla Recalling Model S Wall Chargers.

Quote:
As weird as it may sound, Tesla’s replacement program for its wall charger adapters has now become a recall. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Tesla will be replacing about 29,222 units of its NEMA 14-50 UMC adapters later this year in order to fix some issues that may cause the device to overheat.

Quote:
During charging, the adapter, cord, or wall outlet could overheat. An overheated adapter, cord, or wall receptacle, increases the risk of burn injury
