  2. Ford recalls new F-150s for cruise control glitch, older Windstars for rear axle problem. Ford Motor is recalling about 37,000 of the current-generation F-150s because the adaptive cruise control can be fooled by other trucks on the road and 342,000 Windstar minivans for possible cracking in the rear axle.
  3. Hyundai to recall 470,000 Sonatas in the U.S. over engine issue. Hyundai Motor Co. said it would recall 470,000 Sonata sedans in the United States to replace faulty engine parts, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Hyundai Motor America is recalling the model year 2011-2012 cars as certain metallic debris may not have been fully removed when engine crankshafts were being manufactured,
  4. Honda recalling 143K Civic, Fit models for CVT. Honda is recalling 143,676 examples of the 2014-2015 Civic and 2015 Fit for a problem with the way that its software controls the CVT. Currently, the system uses high hydraulic pressure in the transmission at times, which can put stress on the drive pulley shaft. Also, some of those parts “may have been produced at the low end of the hardness specification” during manufacturing, the automaker reports. When the two factors are combined over time, the high pressure could cause the shaft to break. If this happens, it would result in losing drive to the front wheels or in them locking up. According to documents submitted to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration , Honda received the first report of a shaft breaking in July 2014 in the US, and there was a wheel lockup in Canada in January 2015. As of September 3, there were 23 warranty claims about this issue but no reported injuries.
