Kia recall for engine valve springs may cause fire

Kia is recalling 2,872 of its 2024 Telluride vehicles. The engine valve springs may break while driving, which can result in a loss of drive power and possibly create a hole in the engine block. A hole within the engine block increases the risk of a fire and the loss of drive power increases the risk of a crash, according to the NHTSA report.

To resolve this issue, Kia dealers will replace the engine sub-assembly free of charge to affected vehicles. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 5. Owners may contact Kia customer service at 1-800-333-4542. Kia’s number for this recall is SC296.

Recalled vehicles:

  • 2024 Telluride

Nissan recalls rearview camera not displaying an image

Nissan is recalling 57,914 of its 2018-2022 LEAF vehicles. Damage to the camera harness can cause distortion or loss of the rearview camera display image. If a rearview image does not properly display, it can reduce a driver’s rearview, and increase the risk of a crash, the NHTSA reports.

These vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, “Rear Visibility,” according to the NHTSA.

Nissan is currently working through solutions to resolve this issue. Notification letters will be mailed out March 20. Owners may contact Nissan customer service at 1-800-867-7669.

Incorrect adjustments of headlines can reduce the visibility of oncoming traffic and increase the risks of a serious injury and/or crash, the NHTSA said.

300,000 GMC, Chevrolet trucks recalled over concerns with tailgate’s release system

More than 300,000 trucks manufactured by General Motors were recalled late last week over safety concerns posed by the tailgate’s electronic release system short circuiting after coming in contact with water.

The notice is set to impact about 323,232 trucks, including certain Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra models sold between 2020 and 2024, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said.

The electronic gate-release, which could unlatch the tailgate while the vehicle is in motion, can cause a road hazard and increase the risk of a crash, according to the NHTSA.  The gate could also unlock while the truck is in park.

Chevrolet customers can reach customer support at 1-(800)-222-1020. GMC customers can reach customer support at 1-(800)-462-8782. The number of the recall, designated by General Motors is N232426400. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety can be contacted over the phone at 1-(888)-327-4236 or online.
