    Default Recalls and Safety Notices

    I thought I would create just one thread, maybe turn this into a sticky, for all the recall notices and/or safety notice related to the automotive industry. This thread would be keep track of all these recalls and safety notices in one place.

    If you have specific questions regarding your vehicle, please contact your local dealership or contact the corporate office for your specific vehicle.

    I will be updated this thread as often as needed, but please feel free to add them if I miss any.

    Thanks.

    Default 2010 Acura ZDX Crossover - Airbag Issue

    "A recall has been issued in both the U.S. and Canada regarding the 2010 Acura ZDX crossover. The recall involves the potential lack of proper laser scoring on the underside of the dashboard, which can in turn limit airbag deployment in the event of an accident.

    Acura has announced that it will be recalling 1,850 ZDX models in the U.S., and another 605 vehicles in Canada regarding the lack of laser scoring on the underside of the dashboard.

    Acura says that no incidents have been reported involving improperly deployed airbags as a result of this problem, but the automaker will be recalling 2,455 vehicles in order to inspect the dash and determine if the proper laser scoring has been applied. The fault was first discovered during a manufacturing quality check, not as a result of an airbag’s failure to deploy during an accident.

    Acura says it will inspect the dashboards to determine if the scoring is according to specifications, and if it is not, it will replace the dashboard on the vehicle.

    The recall will officially begin in late April."

    Default Toyota/Lexus GX460 - Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

    This is not a recall yet, but a warning about this specific vehicle.

    "NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- Toyota asked dealers to temporarily suspend sales of the new 2010 Lexus GX 460 after Consumer Reports issued a safety warning on the SUV.

    "We are taking the situation with the GX 460 very seriously and are determined to identify and correct the issue Consumer Reports identified," said Mark Templin, Lexus Group vice president and general manager, in a prepared statement.

    Earlier on Tuesday the magazine said there was an increased risk of rollover during a turn, a problem it uncovered during routine tests. It urged car shoppers not to buy the GX 460 until the problem is remedied."

    The automaker is recalling Acura TSX sedans with 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engines from the 2004 to 2008 model years because hoses that carry power steering fluid could become brittle and begin to crack.
