Chevrolet Equinox, GMC Terrain recall for child seat concerns

General Motors is recalling 668,187 of its 2020-2023 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles because the four rear-seat lower child seat LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) anchorage bars may have excessive powder coating, which could prevent a child seat from being installed with the anchorage bars, GM said in a safety recall report filed with NHTSA. If child seats are not properly installed, there is increased risk of injury in a crash.

Recalled vehicles:

  • 2020-2023 Chevrolet Equinox (454,722)
  • 2020-2023 GMC Terrain (213,465)

The temporary loss of rearview image during a backing event could increase the risk of a crash or an injury to a person behind the vehicle, Mitsubishi said.Mitsubishi has received four reports and two potential warranty claims from the U.S. on the issue but is not aware of any reports of accident or injury related to this condition.

BMW Mini Cooper recall for potential short-circuit from corrosion

BMW is recalling 97,933 of its 2007-2013 Mini Cooper Hardtop and 2008-2014 Mini Cooper Clubman vehicles because an electronic control module – for various lighting and power window functions – in the driver's side footwell area may short-circuit because of corrosion from water and road salt. For vehicles with a sunroof, the sunroof drain hose could eventually detach allowing water to enter the vehicle interior. Combined with road salt in the footwell, corrosion could occur and a possible short circuit could lead to a fire, a NHTSA report says. BMW has identified six incidents in the U.S. involving corrosion in vehicles produced from 2010 to 2013, all equipped with a sunroof. The automaker has not received any reports of any accidents or injuries related to this issue, the company says.

Porsche Taycan recall for brake pad notification issue in Puerto Rico

Porsche is recalling 71 of its 2020-2022 Taycan vehicles because an incorrect market-specific coding of instrument clusters for Puerto Rico, resulted in the brake wear symbol being displayed with an incorrect color as is required legally there, the company said in a NHTSA safety report. This could lead to a misinterpretation of the brake wear warning icon and driving with worn brake pads, potentially increasing the risk of injury in a crash or emergency brake scenario, the automaker said.

Porsche was not aware of any customer complaints, warranty records, crashes, or injuries from this issue. It was determined that vehicles with incorrect coding have been produced and delivered only in Puerto Rico.

  • 2020-2022 Porsche Taycan

In April 2023, Porsche implemented a change to correct the coding in production. Vehicle owners will be notified by July 14 about the recall, the company said.
