Transport Canada has issued a recall on five more vehicle brands from manufacturers including BMW, Mercedes-Benz, Volvo and Ford, 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 faulty charging cables, and brake booster corrosion all the way to issues with airbag deployment and improperly assembled steering wheels, the federal department is urging Canadians to verify if their cars are affected by the recall and what steps to take next in order to repair the problem(s).

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

Volkswagen

Recalled Vehicle: Volkswagen ID.4 — 2023

Recall Reason: Per Transport Canada, the 12 V battery charging cables could be damaged due to contact with the steering shaft, possibly causing a short circuit on certain vehicles.

Corrective Action: "Volkswagen will notify owners by mail and instruct you to take your vehicle to a dealership to inspect the 12 V battery charging cable."
