Added Fri, 24 Mar 2017 00:00:00 -0400

TIFFIN issued a recall on the PHAETON model

On certain vehicles built on a Powerglide chassis, insufficient clearance exists between the exhaust pipe and the floor. This could cause the floor insulation to melt and make the floor area above the engine extremely hot, increasing the risk of personal injury or possibly resulting in a fire. Correction: Dealers will install a revised exhaust configuration to increase clearance. Note: This is an expansion of recall 2015-565.

Added Wed, 22 Mar 2017 00:00:00 -0400

If this occurs, the axle could separate from the trailer which would increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will replace all the bolts holding the suspension components to the trailer framework and add reinforcing gussets to the mating cross member to address any potential cracks that could exist in the cross member.

AIRSTREAM issued a recall on the BASE CAMP model

BMW issued a recall on the X5 model

On certain vehicles, the front passenger airbag could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment due to a potential airflow impairment in the inflator module. Increased pressure may cause the inflator to rupture, which could allow fragments to be propelled toward vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury. This could also damage the airbag module, which could prevent proper deployment. Failure of the airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of personal injury to the seat occupant. Correction: Dealers will replace the front passenger airbag inflator.
