Recall Monday: VW in the spotlight, Mopar in the clear

There were no “Mopar” recalls again this week, but Volkswagen had a particularly bad time with front camera heaters overheating on 2020 Q7s, surprise-opening doors on 2023 the ID 4, breaking fuel pumps on the 2022 Taos, and inoperative airbags on the 2018-21 Atlas.

Tesla recalled the 2018-19 Model 3 for separating front suspension links, and Kia is fixing 2022-23 Carnival minivans whose power sliding doors may not stop for occupants. Oh, and the 2023 Hyundai  Genesis G90’s seat belt pretensioners may explode (see robot’s rendering).

What’s left? 2019-21 BMW seats may not be welded properly across four models; Kia Soul EV battery packs may short-circuit; and the 2023 Range Rover may catch fire due to an oil leak. Mercedes AMGs may have tires leaking air, and Honda is replicating two other recalls by having poorly welded front seats (2023 Civic Type R) and detaching suspension parts (2007-11 CR-V). Rivian may somehow have “reduced visibility of reverse lights” on the R1S, and Porsche, like Honda and Tesla, may have failing suspension parts, this time on the 2004-05 Carrera GT.
