2015-ford-f-150-39

Όπως ανακοίνωσε η Ford, ανακαλεί 312.814 Crown Victoria και Mercury Grand Marquis παραγωγής μεταξύ 3 Οκτωβρίου 2001 και 2 Αυγούστου 2005 στα οποία οι κολλήσεις στην μονάδα ελέγχου του φωτισμού, θα μπορούσαν να ραγίσουν, κάνοντας τα φωτιστικά σώματα να μην λειτουργούν σωστά, αυξάνοντας έτσι τον κίνδυνο ατυχήματος. Η Ford γνωρίζει 11 ατυχήματα που σχετίζονται με το συγκεκριμένο πρόβλημα, με έναν άνθρωπο να τραυματίζεται ελαφρά. Η Ford λέει πως θα επιδιορθώσει το πρόβλημα, αντικαθιστώντας δωρεάν ολόκληρη την μονάδα ελέγχου του φωτισμού

Παράλληλα η Ford ανακαλεί 3.218 νέα F-150 που κατασκευάστηκαν μεταξύ 22 Ιανουαρίου 2015 και 17 Μαρτίου 2015, στα οποία ο προεντατήρας της ζώνης ασφαλείας, μπορεί να μην ασφαλίσει σωστά, κάτι που θα μπορούσε να μην συγκρατήσει επαρκώς τον επιβάτη σε περίπτωση σύγκρουσης. Η Μπλε Οβάλ εταιρία θα αντικαταστήσει τον προβληματικό προεντατήρα, ενώ παράλληλα ανακαλεί 177 F-650 και F-750 MY2016 στα οποία πρέπει να αντικατασταθεί ο θάλαμος αέρα των πίσω φρένων, αλλά πρέπει να αντικαταστήσει τα πίσω ημιαξόνια σε 1.300 Transit.

Τέλος η Mercedes ανακαλεί 809 E-Class E350 και E350 4Matic παραγωγής μεταξύ 4 Ιουνίου 2014 και 9 Ιουλίου 2014, στις οποίες πρέπει να τοποθετήσει στη γραμμή τροφοδοσίας καυσίμου διπλή προστατευτική ασπίδα, για να μην προκληθεί πυρκαγιά σε περίπτωση διαρροής καυσίμου. Η γερμανική εταιρία ανακαλεί και 52 S550 Hybrid παραγωγής 24 Απριλίου 2015 και 12 Ιουνίου 2015, στις οποίες μια εσωτερική έρευνα αποκάλυψε πως ένας ακατάλληλος φορτιστής υψηλής τάσης, ίσως οδηγήσει το σύστημα φόρτισης να μην λειτουργήσει σωστά και να ανιχνεύσει εσφαλμένα πως έχει τοποθετηθεί το βύσμα του φορτιστή, στην υποδοχή του αυτοκινήτου.

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. is Recalling certain 2014 E350 and E350 4Matic sedans 22 12 2015

WASHINGTON, D.C. – December 22, 2015 

RECALL Subject: Incorrect Fuel Line may Result in Fire or Stall Report Receipt Date: NOV 24, 2015 NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V792000 Component(s): FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE Potential Number of Units Affected: 809

All Products Associated with this Recall Vehicle Make

MERCEDES-BENZ Model

E350 Model Year(s)

2014

Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.

SUMMARY: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2014 E350 and E350 4Matic sedans manufactured June 4, 2014, to July 9, 2014. The affected vehicles were built with a fuel feed line that has a single flare fitting instead of a double flare fitting.

CONSEQUENCE: If the fuel feed line has the incorrect flare fitting, the connection between the fuel hose and the fuel feed line might develop a leak or may completely disconnect. Leaking fuel in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire and if the fuel feed line disconnects, the vehicle would stall, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install the correct fuel line, free of charge. This recall is expected to begin in early January 2016. Owners may contact Mercedes-Benz customer service at 1-800-367-6372.

Manufacturer: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC.

SUMMARY: Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain model year 2015 S550 Hybrid vehicles manufactured April 24, 2015, to June 12, 2015. The affected vehicles are equipped with a high voltage onboard charger that may not have been built to specification, and as a result, the charging function for an external charging cable might not function and the onboard charger may incorrectly detect a charging cable, even while the vehicle is being driven.

CONSEQUENCE: If the charging cable is incorrectly detected and the vehicle is stopped or moving at a very slow speed, the vehicle may unexpectedly shift to park, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: MBUSA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the onboard charger, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early January 2016. Owners may contact MBUSA customer service at 1-800-367-6372.
