The United States National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently released a series of recalls for Acura, Honda, Ford, Kia, and Nissan vehicles. Acura and Honda vehicles have been recalled due to an issue with the electric power steering system, which can potentially cause the system to malfunction and cause a loss in steering control. Ford vehicles have been recalled due to a software issue that can cause the airbag deployment system to deploy improperly or fail to deploy in the event of a crash. Kia vehicles have been recalled due to a potential issue with the brake pedal, which could cause it to become stuck in the depressed position and increase the risk of a crash. Finally, Nissan vehicles have been recalled due to a possible issue with the fuel tank, which may cause a fuel leak and increase the risk of a fire.
NHTSA recommends that the owners of affected vehicles contact their dealerships for further instructions on how to address the issue. If the vehicles are already in for service, the dealerships will be able to make the necessary repairs free of charge. The NHTSA urges all vehicle owners to stay informed of the latest recalls and to take the appropriate steps to ensure their vehicles are safe to operate.
