The Basics: Nissan is recalling certain model year 2014 Nissan Rogue crossovers built between July 25, 2013 and December 21, 2013, and from February 1, 2014, to June 7, 2014. Improper nickel-plating of components within the fuel pump may cause the pump to fail.

The Issue: If the fuel pump fails, the vehicle may stall without warning, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Nissan will notify owners, and dealers will replace the fuel pump, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-647-7261.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

The Basics: Hyundai is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Santa Fe vehicles produced from September 1, 2015 to February 12, 2016. In the affected vehicles, the wires in the front seat belt buckle harnesses may be damaged by the seat’s height adjuster mechanism, resulting in a failure to provide an audible warning when front seat occupants do not fasten their seat belts.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, “Occupant Crash Protection.”

The Issue: Without a warning to remind the front seat occupants that their seat belts are not buckled, they may forget to buckle their seat belt, increasing their risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Hyundai will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and reroute the wires in the front seat belt buckle harnesses to their proper locations, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 6, 2016. Owners may contact Hyundai customer service at 1-800-633-5151. Hyundai’s number for this recall is 141.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
