Chrysler has recalled 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokees equipped with a "quadra-trac" transfer case, temporary spare tire, and any of the 225/70R16, 225/75R16, or 245/70R15 road tires. When the temporary spare tire is in use, the front axle may overheat. This can force axle fluid out of the seals, which may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the temporary spare tire with a full sized tire and wheel.
All Car Recalls
Cadillac has recalled 1998 DeVille vehicles because the hinge pivot bolts may not have been heat treated properly and may fail. In the event of an accident, the hood may push back through the windshield glass, which may injure the occupants. Dealers will replace the hood hinge pivot bolts.
Ford has recalled certain 1998 Explorer Eddie Bauer and Limited vehicles due to a malfunction in the warning chime that activates with the key in the ignition and the doors ajar. This does not comply with theft protection regulations. Dealers will install a jumper wire to provide the necessary ground circuit to repair the malfunction.
Honda is recalling certain passenger vehicles due to improper welding on the front passenger seat belt retractor mounting bracket. The bracket may separate from the vehicle body during a crash. Dealers will inspect and repair the brackets.
Toyota is recalling 1997 Camrys due to a possible jamming of the lock pin of the key interlock solenoid, which makes it possible to remove the ignition key when the shift lever is not in the "Park" position. This may cause the driver to fail to move the shift lever into "Park," which can cause the parking brake not to activate. Dealers will replace the key interlock solenoid.
