Recall score: STLA 1, Mopar 0, Ford 2; and bad Mercedes brakes

Ford has two recalls this week, one for failing Maverick tail-lights, and one for flyaway glass roofs on the 2017-19 Transit Connect.

Drivers may want to be careful of Mercedes vehicles for a while, because a wide range of GL, ML, and R vehicles from 2006 to 2012, including two AMG models, may have bad brakes due to brake booster corrosion.

Other recalls include incorrectly installed driveshafts on 2024 Nissan Sentras, high-voltage battery damage due to water leaks on 2021-23 Mini Cooper SEs, tearing airbags on the 2024 Cadillac XT5, and EGR valve shorts which can cause stalling on 2024 Hyundais (Elantra, Kona, and Venue). Finally, while it’s listed by NHTSA as being a Chrysler, the 2021 Alfa Romeo Giulia is not what most would call a “Mopar;” but it has a fuel line sensor housing which might leak, possibly causing fires though none have been reported. Only 261 cars sold in the US are prone to this problem, likely with a handful in Canada and Mexico also at fault (the issue may or may not be global in scope).
