The inboard roll form used to maintain the hub assembly can fatigue resulting in noise and/or wheel separation on the two wheel drive (2WD) applications. The risk of these issues does not occur on the four wheel drive (4WD) applications, and installation on the 4WD applications are not part of this recall.

After many years of vehicle service in these areas, corrosion can weaken the rear axle, making it susceptible to torsional stress. Corrosion and stress can lead to cracks which if undetected can propagate and result in a complete fracture of the axle. A fractured axle can affect vehicle handling and increase the risk of a crash. As parts become available, dealers will inspect and if necessary install the rear axle reinforcement brackets free of charge. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or before September 27, 2010. Owners may contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Forest River is recalling certain model year 2011 Wildcat travel trailers manufactured from January 1, 2010 through July 22, 2010. The information for the models' gross vehicle weight rating, gross axle weight rating, tires, rims, and air pressure was incorrectly inputted in the corporate computer system. As a result, the gross axle weight rating label and the tire label on the vehicles is incorrect and may lead an owner to inadvertently overload the vehicle. An overload condition may result in an axle or tire failure increasing the risk of a crash. Forest River will be mailing corrected labels to retail purchasers, and/or to dealers.

The second row seat side trim shield restricts the upward rotation of the safety belt buckle when the seat back is returned to a seating position after being folded flat. If the buckle contacts the seat frame, additional effort is required to return the seat to a seating position. If sufficient force is applied, the buckle cover could be pushed down the strap, exposing and partially depressing the red release button. The safety belt may not restrain the occupant as intended during a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant. Dealers will modify the second row seat side trim shields. If a safety belt buckle is damaged, dealers will replace it free of charge. The safety recall began on August 18, 2010. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, Buick at 1-866-608-8080, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, and Saturn at 1-800-972-8876, or at the owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.

Dealers will remove the original interlock pin and lever within the ignition switch, and replace them with new, designed components. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about September 29, 2010. Owners may contact Honda at 1-800-999-1009.

These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage Systems." The weld between the tether anchor and the seat gusset bracket is out-of-specification. As a result, and based on Nissan's engineering judgment, the tether anchor could separate from the seat when tested under the conditions required by the standard.

The engine warning lamp could be illuminated, harsh shifting could result, the engine may not start, or the engine could shut off while the vehicle is being driven. An engine shutoff while the vehicle is being driven increases the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the production number of the ECM and replace the ECM if necessary. This service will be performed free of charge. Toyota will mail an interim owner notification the middle of September 2010 to advise owners of this defect and recall. This interim notification will inform owners that they will receive a future notification when parts become available to have the free remedy performed on their vehicle.

Webasto is recalling certain Hollandia 700 and 600 series and Hollandia TVS 900 series sunroofs sold as aftermarket equipment for various passenger vehicles. The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal frame can debond increasing the risk that the sunroof glass would separate from the vehicle. Complete glass-to-frame debonding can develop gradually and may be evidenced by metal corrosion around the sunroof frame, wind noise, vibration, visual bond separation and/or water leakage. These conditions may be observable for several months before complete glass-to-frame adhesion debonding can ultimately occur. In the event of a separation, the falling glass could cause a road hazard that results in a vehicle crash or could strike a trailing vehicle. Webasto will notify owners of record and installers will repair the sunroofs free of charge.
