Nissan North America is recalling 322,671 2013-2016 Pathfinder vehicles because the secondary hood (bonnet) latch may malfunction and remain in the unlatched, unsecured, position when the hood is closed. The remedy is in development.
The automaker is also recalling 180,176 2020-2022 Frontier and Titan vehicles. The transmission parking pawl may not engage when the vehicle is shifted into park, which can result in vehicle roll away. Owners have been advised to apply the parking brake every time they park their vehicle. The remedy is currently under development.
Toyota Motor Engineering & Manufacturing (Toyota) is recalling 46,176 2022 Tundra and Tundra Hybrid vehicles because flange nuts on the axle shaft sub-assemblies can loosen over time and potentially cause one or both axle shaft sub-assemblies to separate from the axle housing.

Ford announced two new recalls. It is recalling 63,294 of the new 2022 Bronco and Ranger vehicles.

Ford also is recalling 2,666 2022 F-150 BEV vehicles equipped with 20″ or 22″ all season tyres.

The body control module (BCM) software will be updated by a dealer, or through an over-the-air (OTA) update.
