Mfg. Recall No.: 72 80 20RC
Canadian Units: 20,070
Description: Note: This recall is for certain vehicles that had an airbag inflator replaced as a part of an earlier recall campaign. This recall provides a final repair.

Long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger-front airbag.

Mfg. Recall No.:
Canadian Units: 36,217
Description: Note: This recall is for certain vehicles that had an airbag inflator replaced as a part of an earlier recall campaign. This recall provides a final repair.

Long-term exposure to high absolute humidity and temperature, combined with high temperature cycling, may eventually degrade the propellant contained in the passenger-front airbag. This could cause the airbag to deploy with more force than normal. If the airbag inflator ruptures, fragments could be propelled toward vehicle occupants, or cause damage to the airbag assembly, preventing its proper function. If the vehicle is involved in a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the airbag inflator could rupture and create a risk of injury.

Correction: Owners will be notified by mail and instructed to take their vehicle to a dealer to inspect the passenger-front airbag inflator. The passenger-front airbag module, or inflator, will be replaced as necessary. Note: The Canadian climate results in the propellant degrading slowly. This recall is being conducted as a precaution to address future risk. It is expected that all airbag inflators will be replaced before their function would be affected.
Recall No.: 2019-604
Company: Subaru
Models: 2019 Ascent & Forester
Mfg. Recall No.: WUW-08
Canadian Units: 5,539
Description: On certain vehicles, the positive crankcase ventilation (PCV) valve could fail. If you continue to operate the vehicle after this happens, pieces of the PCV valve may enter the engine and cause an engine failure. A sudden loss of engine power could increase the risk of a crash.
Correction: Subaru will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to replace the PCV valve. Additionally, the replaced PCV valve will be inspected. If the valve is found to have separated, the separator cover and oil pan will be removed. If the separated parts are not located, the engine short block assembly will be replaced.
Recall No.: 2019-605
Company: Subaru
Models: 2019 Ascent
Mfg. Recall No.: WUV-07
Canadian Units: 4,669
Description: On certain vehicles, a hydraulic sensor in the transmission could malfunction. If this happens, the transmission may slip and cause vibrations, or abnormal noises while driving. This can also cause a malfunction indicator lamp to turn on. If you continue driving, this could result in a loss of power to the wheels. A loss of power to the wheels could increase the risk of a crash.
Correction: Subaru will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to update the Transmission Control Unit (TCU) software. The vehicle will be inspected after a drive test and if certain trouble codes (DTCs) are stored, the hydraulic sensor harness will also be replaced. If vehicles are confirmed to have experienced, or are currently experiencing low drive chain tension, the transmission assembly will be replaced.

Mfg. Recall No.: 69AE
Canadian Units: 9,165
Description: On certain vehicles, exposure to moisture over time could cause the driver-front airbag not to inflate properly in a crash. In a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the driver-front airbag may not inflate properly. This could create a risk of injury.
Correction: The company will notify owners by mail. There may be a significant delay before replacement parts are available. The company will send a second letter once replacement parts are available and instruct owners to take their vehicle to a dealer to inspect the driver-front airbag inflator. If the inflator requires replacement, a newly design part will be installed.
Recall No.: 2019-630
Company: Volkswagen
Models: 2019 Jetta
Mfg. Recall No.: 94M7
Canadian Units: 6,478
Description: On certain cars, the right-front daytime running light (DRL) may not work, or may not be bright enough to meet Canadian regulations. A daytime running light that is dimmed, or not working could make the car less visible to others and increase the risk of a crash.

Note: This recall replaces Transport Canada recall 2019-292. Vehicles that were repaired under that recall also require this repair.

Correction:

Volkswagen will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their car to a dealer to inspect the right-front headlight. The heat sink, or complete right headlight, will be replaced as necessary.

Mfg. Recall No.: SRC R99
Canadian Units: 17,022
Description: On certain vehicles, exposure to moisture over time could cause the driver-front airbag not to inflate properly in a crash. In some cases, this could cause an airbag not to fully inflate, while in others it could cause it to deploy with more force than normal. It could also cause the inflator to rupture. If the airbag inflator ruptures, small pieces of metal could be propelled toward vehicle occupants, or cause damage to the airbag and prevent its proper function. In a crash requiring an airbag deployment, the driver-front airbag may not inflate properly, or the inflator could rupture. This could create a risk of injury.
Correction: Toyota will notify owners by mail. The corrective actions for this recall are under development.

Correction:

Toyota will notify owners by mail and instruct them to take their vehicle to a dealer to install an electrical noise filter to prevent damage to the airbag control module.
