Description: On certain vehicles, the main relay contacts in the Power Relay Assembly located underneath the rear seat may have an inadequate connection. This could increase electrical resistance and generate heat, increasing the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the Power Relay Assembly for signs of thermal damage. If no thermal damage is found, the main relay will be replaced. If signs of thermal damage exist, the Power Relay Assembly will be replaced. Note: This problem may cause the Illumination of the HEV warning light while driving and/or an inability to start the vehicle.

Mfg. Recall No.: RC120
Canadian Units: 1,426
Description: On certain vehicles, the front wiring harness could come in contact with a sharp metal opening on the left inner fender and become damaged. This could result in an electrical short-circuit and create the risk of a fire causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will inspect the front wiring harness for damage. If no damage is found, the dealer will install a plug/cover to the opening on the left inner fender. If damage is found, the front wiring harness will be replaced and a plug/cover will be installed to cover the opening on the left inner fender.

Mfg. Recall No.: 2618F
Canadian Units: 42,961
Description: On certain vehicles, the passenger frontal airbag inflator could produce excessive internal pressure during airbag deployment. 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 passenger airbag to fully deploy during a crash (where deployment is warranted) could increase the risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Correction: Dealers will replace the passenger frontal airbag inflator. Note: This recall supersedes recalls 2015-624 (Mazda Recall 9015L), 2016-259 (Mazda Recall 9416E) and 2017-011 (Mazda Recall 0617A). Vehicles repaired under the previous recalls do not require repair under this recall.

Mfg. Recall No.: 1317F
Canadian Units: 23,966
Description: On certain vehicles, long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, could eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger frontal airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. 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 inflator. 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. Additional Note: This is an expansion of recall 2018-030.

Mfg. Recall No.: SR-18-007
Canadian Units: 8,089
Description: On certain vehicles, an issue in the software used by the Electronic Control Unit responsible for managing the Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) feature may cause it to not operate as intended alerting the driver to brake unnecessarily in certain situations. If the driver attempts to brake while FCM is also activating, the vehicle may decelerate rapidly. This could create a situation where another motorist does not anticipate a preceding vehicle’s sudden brake application, or stop, creating the risk of a rear-end collision causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will update the software for the Forward Collision Mitigation system.

Mfg. Recall No.: SR-18-008
Canadian Units: 18,281
Description: On certain vehicles, an issue in the software that manages the brake system Hydraulic Unit may allow it to reset without warning and could cause some vehicle features to malfunction. If this were to occur while driving, the following features may be affected: automatic braking (if Automatic Cruise Control (ACC) and/or Forward Collision Mitigation (FCM) is in operation), Antilock Braking System (ABS), Active Stability Control (ASC), Brake Auto Hold (BAH). If these systems malfunction, there could be an increased risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will update the Hydraulic Unit control software.

Mfg. Recall No.: SR-18-009
Canadian Units: 80,610
Description: On certain vehicles, water may drain from the windshield cowl area onto the front wiper link ball joint. Over time, this could result in corrosion and/or wear to the joint, which could result in the separation of the wiper link ball. If separation were to occur, the windshield wipers could become inoperative, which could limit the driver’s visibility under certain operating conditions which may increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will replace the wiper link rod with a countermeasure one and will replace the wiper motor crank arm with a new one.

Mfg. Recall No.: SR-18-010
Canadian Units: 7,575
Description: On certain vehicles, a wiring connector located under the driver’s side carpet may become contaminated by salt water and corrode over time. This could cause a short-circuit that may cause the connector to overheat and melt and potentially lead to a fire if combustible objects are nearby. A vehicle fire could result in injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will relocate and replace the wiring connector terminal to a higher position and replace the rear display harness with a new one.

Mfg. Recall No.: WTY-84
Canadian Units: 19,164
Description: On certain vehicles, the engine valve springs could fracture, causing an engine failure or a stall with an inability to restart. This could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will replace the engine valve springs. Note: A driver may notice abnormal noise and/or vibration prior to an engine failure, or stalling.

Company: Subaru
Models: 2018 Legacy & Outback
Mfg. Recall No.: WTW-82
Canadian Units: 14,160
Description: On certain vehicles, the low fuel warning light may not turn on at the correct time to warn of a low fuel level. The driving range indicator in the multi-information display may also indicate a remaining distance-to-empty when the fuel tank is empty. While the low fuel warning light will eventually turn on and the fuel gauge will eventually display “E” (empty), if the driver continues to operate the vehicle based on the range indicator, the vehicle may run out of fuel, causing the engine to stall and increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.
Correction: Dealers will reprogram the combination meter (gauge cluster) software. Note: Until the recall repair is completed, drivers should ensure to refill the fuel tank before the fuel level is close to empty.

Mfg. Recall No.: SRC R66
Canadian Units: 23,125
Description: On certain vehicles, the Intelligent Power Module (IPM), which is part of the hybrid drive system, could become damaged under certain driving conditions. This could cause various warning lights to illuminate on the instrument panel of the vehicle and cause a reduction, or loss of motive power, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or property damage.
Correction: Dealers will update motor/generator and hybrid control ECU software and affect repairs as necessary.

Mfg. Recall No.: SRC R67
Canadian Units: 15,774
Description: Certain vehicles may not comply with the requirements of Canada Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (CMVSS) 208 – Occupant Protection in Frontal Impacts and CMVSS 214 – Side Impact Protection. The airbag (SRS) control unit may incorrectly detect a fault in one, or more, of the front, or side, airbag impact sensors during vehicle start up. In the event of a crash where airbag deployment is required, this may result in the airbags not deploying as designed, increasing the risk of injury. Upon detection of a fault in the airbag system, multiple warning lights would activate, a warning buzzer would sound and a warning message would display on the instrument panel display.
Correction: Dealers will update the airbag control unit software. Note: This recall supersedes recall 2018-100. Vehicles repaired as part of the previous recall will require re-inspection and repair.

Description: On certain vehicles, the Telematics and Driver Support Systems may not function as designed due to a software error. In the event of a crash, this could mean that the Emergency Assist system would not alert Volvo and provide the GPS coordinates of the vehicle. This could create a risk of no response from emergency services.
Correction: Dealers will update vehicle software.
