As a result, if the vehicle were involved in a collision that warrants airbag deployment, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants and the airbag assembly could be damaged, preventing proper function. These issues could increase the risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger frontal airbag module. Note: Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. The recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk and is expected to replace airbag inflators before their function would be affected.



 
Recall No.: 2016-591
Company: Mitsubishi
Models: 2011, 2012, 2016 RVR
Mfg. Recall No.: SR-16- 011
Canadian Units: 16,244
Description: On certain vehicles, the outer tubes of the rear liftgate support struts may have had insufficient anti-corrosion treatment applied during manufacturing. As a result, the outer tube could corrode due to salt and water penetration. If this were to occur, the liftgate support strut could rapidly lose pressure, which would allow the liftgate to drop suddenly, placing anyone beneath or near the gate at risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will replace the rear liftgate support struts with updated ones.



 
Recall No.: 2016-580
Company: Nissan
Models: 2016 Titan XD
Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 1,896
Description: On certain vehicles equipped with diesel engines, a temporary fuel tank breather tube cap may not have been removed during assembly and the tube may not have been correctly affixed to the bed rail. As a result, the fuel tank may not receive proper ventilation through the fuel tank breather tube and, in some instances, may deform. This condition could result in the fuel gauge and the separate “distance to empty” meter, to both display inaccurately. If this occurs, the vehicle could possibly run out of fuel, which would cause the engine to stall without warning to the driver. Engine stalling could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the fuel tank breather tube for proper routing and inspect for the absence of the temporary fuel tank breather tube cap to determine if a vehicle is affected. The temporary fuel tank breather tube cap will be removed and fuel tank, fuel sending unit, and/or fuel tank breather tube will be replaced as necessary.

Description: On certain vehicles equipped with a 2.0L TFSI engine, the coolant pump could become blocked by debris from the cooling system. This could lead to the pump overheating and could increase the risk of a fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will update vehicle software which deactivates the power supply to the coolant pump if the pump becomes blocked with debris. The driver will be notified of the blocked coolant pump through the illumination of the Malfunction Indicator Light (MIL).



 
Recall No.: 2017-003
Company: Volkswagen
Models: 2011-2017 Audi Q5
Mfg. Recall No.: 69P1
Canadian Units: 36,349
Description: On certain vehicles, if the water drainage system of the panoramic sunroof becomes damaged or impaired (such as during a repair), water could enter the side head curtain airbag canister. Due to a foam that is touching the airbag inflator, moisture could cause corrosion on the airbag inflator over time. If this happens, the airbag canister could be weakened. This could cause the airbag canister to fracture without airbag deployment and allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the vehicle for evidence of water ingress, examine the drainage system, disassemble the headliner and trim, remove foam and inspect the side head curtain airbag canister for relevant corrosion. In cases where light surface corrosion is found, a wax will be applied to the inflator. In cases of more than light surface corrosion, the inflator will be replaced after a robustness check.
