An assortment of vehicle recall notices have come this week from Subaru and Mercedes-Benz.
From Subaru this week there were two recall notices with the first relating to the following vehicles (VINs found here):
2017-2019 Subaru Impreza
2018-2019 Subaru XV
Due to a programming issue with the Engine Control Module (ECM), in affected vehicles, the ignition coil may overheat leading to a short circuit that could blow the ignition coil fuse. This in turn may cause the engine to stop functioning whilst driving and not restart.
The second recall relates to the following vehicles (VINs found here):
2018-2019 Subaru XV
2019 Subaru Forester
This notice concerns the rear stabiliser bracket bolts which may not have been sufficiently tightened during production which could allow the bolts to loosen over time or fall out. A dislodged bolt or loose stabiliser bracket may impact nearby components leading to an accident.
In both cases, known owners will be contacted and advised to arrange an appointment with their preferred dealer for a free inspection and repair, if necessary.
There were also two recall notices from Mercedes-Benz this week with the first relating to 2019-2020 AMG GT53 vehicles (VINs found here). These vehicles may have an issue with the wheel hub covers not being manufactured correctly leading them to detach from the vehicle.
Also recalled were 2020 Mercedes-Benz GLE vehicles (VINs found here) which may have an issue where the dashboard has not been bonded together properly which would prevent the front passenger airbag from deploying correctly in the event of an accident.
For both Mercedes-Benz recalls, affected owners should contact their preferred dealer to arrange an inspection and repair, free of charge if needed.
