Transport Canada has published several recalls for cars across Canada from manufacturers, including Ford, Honda, Hyundai, KIA, and Subaru to name a few. The recalls are due to several health and safety risks posed to both drivers and passengers of the affected vehicles.

From issues involving improperly welded seats and tire damage, the federal department is urging Canadians to verify if their cars are included the recalls, and is instructing on which steps to take in order to fix the problem(s) concerning the current recall.

Here is the complete list of the recalled vehicles flagged by Transport Canada:


Recalled Vehicles:

  • Nissan Pathfinder 2023
