Toyota recalls 280 BZ4X models due to possible wheel separation
on June 23, Toyota announced a recall for the company’s first all-battery electric vehicle, the 2023 BZ4X.
While only 280 of the BZ4X would go on sale in the United States, with 260 delivered, the recall affects 2,700 electric cars worldwide. Toyota is still investigating the breakdown, which occurs when bolts on the wheels gradually loosen and allow the wheels to separate from the vehicle while driving.
Those who own a BZ4X SUV are encouraged to stop driving the vehicle immediately. While Toyota continues to investigate the cause of the breakdown, dealers will bring the owners’ BZ4X vehicles to the dealer and provide a loaner vehicle.
Nissan and Ford recall Pathfinder and F-150 Lightning vehicles
On June 13, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website posted a: Nissan recall for select 2013-2016 Pathfinder SUVs.
The three-year time frame affects approximately 322,671 vehicles that may have a failed secondary hood latch. The defect could cause an unsecured hood that could open while driving and obscure the driver’s view.
Nissan owner notice letters are expected to be sent on July 18 with further instructions on what to do with the vehicles.
likewise, Ford Motor Co. recalled about 2,900 of its F-150 Lightning trucks, 2,666 in the US and 220 in Canada.
The recall was issued due to a software issue where the trucks did not provide a sufficient warning of low tire pressure. The truck tire pressure monitoring system may not illuminate when it is intended to because the recommended cold tire pressure is incorrectly set to 35 psi instead of the correct number of 42 psi.
Owners can take their trucks to a dealer for a software update that takes about 20 minutes, or wait a few weeks for a wireless update.
