Nissan has red-flagged 2011 Juke models for a turbocharger boost sensor bracket that could come off. NHTSA says that if the bracket comes off, the Juke could stall when it isn’t supposed to.
If your Juke is affected, dealers will inspect and replace the bracket for free. The recall will begin in January 2012.
Ford is recalling the 2011 Ford F-150 and F-250, F-350, F-450 and F-550 trucks from the 2012 model year. NHTSA reports that these models don’t meet federal standards for theft protection. “The transmission can be shifted out of the park position without pressing the brake pedal due to brake shift interlock switch problem,” says NHTSA. This means that the driver can put these trucks into gear without pressing the brake first.
Ford dealers will inspect and replace the brake shift interlock switch for free. This recall should begin before the end of December.
