JEEP

Affected Jeeps: Approximately 18,000 model-year 2018-19 Jeep Wrangler SUVs

The Issue: The front track bar brackets may be improperly welded, which can cause the bracket to separate from the frame, reducing steering capability and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Repairs: Dealers will inspect and repair the track bar bracket welds, as necessary, for free.

What You Should Do: Jeep manufacturer Fiat Chrysler Automobiles will begin notifying owners Nov. 17. Owners can call FCA at 800-853-1403, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

GENERAL MOTORS

Affected GM Vehicles: Approximately 15,800 model-year 2018-19 Cadillac CT6 sedans and Escalade ESV SUVs, Chevrolet Suburban SUVs and Volt hybrids, and GMC Yukon XL SUVs

The Issue: Certain second-row or third-row rear seat belt retractor assemblies may not automatically lock when the seat belt is fully pulled out of the retractor, possibly preventing a child seat from being properly secured, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Repairs: Dealers will inspect the rear seat belt retractors and replace them, if necessary, for free.

What You Should Do: Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC manufacturer GM did not immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Cadillac at 800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GMC at 800-462-8782, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

TOYOTA

Affected Toyotas: Approximately 168,000 model-year 2018-19 Toyota Tundra pickup trucks and Sequoia SUVs and model-year 2019 Avalon sedans

The Issue: Due to inappropriate programming in the airbag electronic control unit, a fault may be erroneously detected during vehicle startup that would disable one or more of the sensors used to detect crashes. This could result in the side and curtain shield airbags and/or front and knee airbags not deploying as designed in a crash, increasing the risk of injury in the event of a crash. Regulatory requirements in certain markets also may not be met.

The repair: Dealers will update the airbag ECU programming for free.

What You Should Do: Toyota will begin notifying owners by first-class mail in late October. Owners can call the automaker at 800-331-4331, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
