Transport Canada has issued recalls on several vehicle types from manufacturers including Chrysler, Porsche, KIA and Audi. The recalls are due to a variety of health and safety risks posed to both drivers and passengers of the affected cars.

From issues involving faulty airbags and tailgate latches to problems with steering knuckles and possible incorrect weight ratings — the federal department is warning members of the public to verify if their cars are affected and what steps to take next in order to repair the problem(s).

Here's a full list of all affected vehicles flagged by Transport Canada:

Porsche

Recalled Vehicles:

  • Porsche 911 Carrera 2022 & 2023
  • Porsche 911 GT3 2023

Recall Reason: According to Transport Canada, a problem with the dashboard on several Porsche vehicles could "cause the front passenger airbag to not inflate properly in a crash."

Corrective Action: "Porsche will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealership to replace the dashboard."

Recall Reason: Per Transport Canada, the left-front steering knuckle may crack or break on certain vehicles.
