Recall Roundup: Cadillac CTS-V, Audi Q3, Nissan Sentra

Recall Roundup: Cadillac CTS-V, Audi Q3, Nissan Sentra

Cadillac

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 5,000 model-year 2004-07 Cadillac CTS-V vehicles manufactured between Sept. 6, 2003, and June 11, 2007. Only vehicles currently registered or originally sold in Connecticut, Delaware, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin and the District of Columbia are affected.

The Problem: Salty snow or water could corrode the front brake hose fitting. This could cause a leak in the brake system and lengthen the distance needed to stop the car, increasing the risk of a crash. This is an expansion of a previous recall.

The Fix: Dealers will replace both front brake hose assemblies for free.

What Owners Should Do: General Motors has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 3,600 model-year 2015 Audi Q3 compact crossovers manufactured April 4 to Nov. 5, 2014

The Problem: If the vehicle is turned off while the sunroof is closing, the sunroof may continue to close. This fails to comply with federal motor vehicle safety standards and increases the risk of injury.

The Fix: Dealers will update the sunroof control module software for free.

What Owners Should Do: Audi began notifying owners on April 13. Owners can call Audi at 800-253-2834 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 45,000 model-year 2006 Nissan Sentra sedans manufactured Jan. 2 to Aug. 26, 2006. Only models originally sold or currently registered in high absolute humidity locations are affected. Regions include Puerto Rico, Hawaii, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Guam, Saipan, American Samoa, Florida and adjacent counties in southern Georgia, as well as the coastal areas of Alabama, Louisiana, Mississippi and Texas.

The Problem: If the passenger-side front airbag deploys, the inflator could rupture, possibly propelling metal fragments into the car’s occupants. This is an expansion of a previous Sentra recall and part of the massive ongoing Takata airbag recall that so far has affected millions of vehicles from 10 automakers.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the passenger air bag inflator for free.

What Owners Should Do: Nissan has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. Owners can call Nissan at 800-647-7261 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at 888-327-4236 for more information.
