Ford, Chrysler, Nissan and Triumph Issue Recalls

Triumph Motorcycles is recalling several 2012 and 2013 models including its popular Street Triple due to problems with the turn signal stems. Triumph Motorcycles is recalling several 2012 and 2013 models including its popular Street Triple due to problems with the turn signal stems. The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) and its Office of Defects Investigation issued recalls of multiple consumer vehicles earlier this month. Each has a defect deemed potentially dangerous to drivers, passengers and others sharing the roadways. Ford is recalling certain model year 2012 Taurus, Lincoln MKS, and model year 2013 Explorer vehicles manufactured July 19, 2011, through March 15, 2012. The fuel tanks may have a marginally sealed seam in the side of the tank, which can cause the fuel tanks to leak or to fail in the event of an impact, potentially causing a fire. Triumph Motorcycles is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 Daytona 675, Street Triple, Speed Triple, and Tiger 800 motorcycles. Due to a manufacturing error, the turn signal stems on the front and rear of the motorcycle may crack or break. This means turn signals may not be visible to other drivers on the road, which can boost the risk of a crash. Chrysler is recalling certain model year 2013 Dodge Challenger vehicles manufactured from December 3, 2012, through January 24, 2013 and equipped with a V6 engine. The battery positive cable at the starter motor may experience an electrical short circuit to ground, which can cause the vehicle to catch fire. Nissan is recalling certain model year 2013 Titan trucks manufactured from January 22, 2013, through February 20, 2013; and model year 2013 NV vehicles manufactured from December 17, 2012, through February 20, 2013 and equipped with steering column-mounted transmission shift levers. Chemicals used in the manufacturing of the shift lever assembly may cause a malfunction of the brake shift interlock allowing the transmission shift lever to be shifted out of park even without the brake pedal being pressed. The vehicle then could roll away, placing drivers and passengers of other vehicles, as well as pedestrians in danger.
