Η Dodge ανακοίνωσε πως ανακαλεί 280.000 Ram pickup της (1500), παραγωγής 2004 και 2005 λόγω πιθανού προβλήματος στον κύριο άξονα μετάδοσης, στον οποίον υπάρχει πιθανότητα να αποσπαστεί από το πίσω διαφορικό, προκαλώντας ατύχημα. Η NHTSA έχει δεχτεί 15 αναφορές για το συγκεκριμένο πρόβλημα, με την Dodge να αντικαθιστά τις βίδες που συγκρατούν τον άξονα στη θέση του.

Η Jaguar από τη μεριά της ανακαλεί 1.571 XJ MY2014 και ΜΥ2015, παραγωγής μεταξύ 6/2/2014 και 23/7/2014 επειδή μπορεί να προκληθεί διαρροή στο σύστημα φρένων, μειώνοντας την αποτελεσματικότητα του συστήματος πέδησης.

Τέλος η MINI ανακαλεί 846 τρίπορτα MINI Cooper 2015, στα οποία ο μηχανικός κλειδώματος των μπροστινών καθισμάτων δεν μπορεί να κλειδώσει σωστά τη θέση της πλάτης του καθίσματος.
