2012-2013 Scion iQ
The Problem: Over time, cables connected to occupant sensors in the Scion iQ passenger seat can snag as the passenger seat slides back and forth. This can damage the sensor cable, which could prevent the passenger airbag or seatbelt pre-tensioner from operating properly in a crash. Scion hasn’t received any reports of injuries resulting from this problem so far.
The Fix: Scion dealerships will inspect the occupant sensor cables, replace them if they are damaged, and install protective covers to prevent further damage. The recall starts in early December.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 11,200 2012-2013 Scion iQ hatchbacks. So far, Scion has only sold 7928 iQs in the U.S. since the car went on sale late last year.
2010-2012 Jaguar XF
The Problem: The outlet port on fuel tanks for some Jaguar XF models might crack, allowing gasoline to spill out onto the ground. That could pose a fire hazard if the gasoline meets a hot ignition source.
The Fix: Jaguar will replace the fuel tank outlet ports for free, starting December 7.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 4195 2010-2012 Jaguar XF sedans.
