Recalls -- in all shapes and sizes -- keep on coming. This week, we’ve seen notices issued for 2005-2006 Chrysler and Dodge minivans, the 2010 Toyota Tacoma, 2004 Saab 9-3s, and 2010 BMW 550i GT and 7-series models.

2005-2006 Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Caravan, Dodge Grand Caravan The problem: The front crash sensors in Chrysler and Dodge vans originally sold in or currently registered in 29 specific states and the District of Columbia may crack under severe conditions. Once this happens, water could enter into the sensor, causing it to stop working properly and illuminate the airbag warning light. These sensors, the National Highway Traffic and Safety Administration says, were originally added to enhance the airbag system's performance in front crashes. When it can be fixed: June 2010. Contact 1-800-853-1403 for more information. Number of vehicles potentially affected: 312,442 2004 Saab 9-3 The problem: Some 9-3 sedans from this model year were equipped with front seat belt retractors that might fail over time. When it can be fixed: March 2010. Contact 1-800-620-7668 for more information. Number of vehicles potentially affected: 14,126 2010 Toyota Tacoma The problem: The propeller shaft of certain 2010 Tacomas may develop cracks during the manufacturing process. "Over time," the NHTSA says, "the cracks may eventually lead to the separation of the propeller shaft." When it can be fixed: Owners will be notified in March and April 2010. For more information, contact 1-800-331-4331. Number of vehicles potentially affected: 8,000 2010 BMW 550i Gran Turismo and 2009-2010 BMW 7 Series The problem: We'll let the NHTSA do the talking on this one: "These vehicles are equipped with a tire pressure label indicating that the vehicle's seating capacity is five passengers. The actual seating capacity is four passengers. The tire size, tire pressure, and vehicle capacity weight on the label are correct." When it can be fixed: Unclear, but concerned owners can contact 1-800-831-1117 for more information. Number of vehicles potentially affected: Not specified Source: NHTSA

UPDATE: Chrysler has contacted us to clarify the type of campaign the NHTSA has implemented for this fix, here's what they told us: The term service action and a safety improvement campaign can be interchangeable if the service of a safety related component is involved. The difference is that a (safety) recall involves the service of a safety related component that has a discernible effect on the safety performance of a vehicle as defined by Federal and/or State regulations.<o:p>;</o:p>;
