Ah, another day, another spate of recalls. A total of 90,000 vehicles from three different automakers are under separate recalls for everything from loose mirrors to defrosters. (At least it’s not as ridiculous as rusting Bentley ornaments).
Suzuki is recalling a total of 70,000 SX4 models from 2007 to 2010 due to side mirror covers that can come loose and fall off. The fix is a simple use of four new screws to hold the mirror caps on. Suzuki says it will begin notifying owners in November.
Meanwhile Mitsubishi is recalling 20,000 Endeavor SUVs from 2006-08. Trucks equipped with manual air conditioning could incorrectly close the heater door, limited the ability for the defroster to function properly and, therefore, limit visibility. Mitsubishi will reprogram the software in affected vehicles to solve the issue, and replace the heater door if necessary.
Ford also has one small recall out today, for 71 2011 Ford Edge and Lincoln MKX crossovers. The issue with the vehicles involves the rear liftgate which was improperly programmed from the factory so the liftgate can’t lock. Ford will notify owners next week in order to get the part repaired.
