This week recalls:
– Mitsubishi – Forward Collision Mitigation
– Subaru – ignition coils
– Ford – e-call
– Fiat, Mercedes – fuel leak


Six recalls of six manufacturers were issued for 14 models in the 25th week of 2021 through the Rapex system.

Fiat, Ford, Land Rover, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, and Subaru have each announced one recall.

Mitsubishi recalls several models this week due to improper software of the FCM ECU (Forward Collision Mitigation). The camera images might be processed incorrectly, and a possible collision might be detected falsely. The FCM system might operate primary braking, leading to an increased risk of an accident. In total, over 214,000 SUVs ASX (GA0W), Eclipse Cross (GK0W), Eclipse Cross PHEV (GL3W), Outlander (GF0W), Outlander PHEV (GG0W) of various model years ranging from 2018 to 2021 are being recalled – see table below.

Last week, Subaru recalled the Impreza and XV models due to suspension issues, and this week we find them on the Rapex list again. With the 2017 – 2019 model year cars, the ignition coils may fail, and the ignition coil fuse may blow. As a result, the engine may stop while driving and not restart.



Ford recalls 680 Explorer, Puma, Focus, S-Max, Galaxy and Kuga models manufactured between July 2019 and February 2021. A problem may occur with the TCU software that could affect the functionality of the eCall system. As a result, emergency service may not be contacted in case of need.

Fiat recalls Talento vans and Mercedes-Benz S-Class models due to a possible fuel leak.

See the table below for all the recalls from this week.
