Toyota has recalled 1,853,568 of its 2013-2018 RAV4 SUVs due to certain replacement 12-volt batteries not properly fitting in the battery tray, potentially causing the battery to move, make contact with the hold-down bracket, and cause a short circuit.

Ford has recalled nearly 187,922 of its 2020-2023 Mustangs because of a faulty brake fluid level sensor not activating the visual warning indicator when fluid is low.

Chrysler recalled 97,066 of its 2022-2024 Jeep Wagoneer and Grand Wagoneer SUVs as a result of the third-row seat belts not allowing passengers to access them or properly buckle them.

Kia recalled 6,262 of its 2015-2019 Soul EV compact cars because of a damaged parking mechanism, potentially leading to unexpected vehicle movement when the gear shift is in “park” and the emergency brake is not engaged while the vehicle is powered on.
