Honda side-view mirrors can fall off
Honda is recalling 330,318 vehicles because heating pads behind both side-view mirrors may not be bonded properly, which could lead to the mirror glass falling out and increasing the risk of a crash.
The agency said the recalled vehicles don’t comply with rear visibility requirements.
- 2020-2022 Odyssey
- 2020-2022 Passport
- 2020-2021 Pilot
- 2020-2021 Ridgeline
No crashes or injuries have been reported in connection to the recall, according to an NHTSA report.
Owner notification letters offering a free repair are expected to be sent out on May 8, according to the report.
Jeep Wrangler fuel tanks could leak
Chrysler, the maker of Jeep vehicles, said an “unnecessary and unused frame stud” on as many as 57,885 Jeep vehicles could pierce the fuel tank and lead to a fire.

According to the recall report, Chrysler had not been aware of any injuries or accidents related to the issue as of March 9.
Affected owners can expect to be notified of the recall on May 12, according to the report, and will be offered a free removal of the frame stud.
Audi EV airbags could tear
Volkswagen is recalling 5,224 of its Audi electric vehicles over air bags that could tear during a crash and leave the occupants more vulnerable to injury, the manufacturer said in an NHTSA recall report.
- 2022-2023 Audi Q4 E-Tron SUV (4,324 vehicles)
- 2022-2023 Audi Q4 E-Tron Sportback (900 vehicles)
“In a crash with head curtain airbag deployment, the airbag could deform the door seal and expose the metal inlay within the seal,” the report said. “ If the exposed metal tears the airbag, the airbag would not be able to protect occupants as designed, increasing the risk of injury.”
Volkswagen said it would offer affected owners a free repair on or before May 19. The manufacturer is not been aware of any injuries or accidents related to the issue, according to the recall report.
