A voluntary recall was issued on December 6 by automaker Tesla Motors Inc. to an estimated 7,000 adapters used for charging electric-powered vehicles in the US due risks of overheating, an article of Bloomberg reported.
According to reports, the recall was issued after Tesla was notified in November of two overheating charging adapter complaints. The adapters, which have plastic liable to melt, have four prongs that can also be used to charge vehicles using clothes-dryer outlets. Tesla said that only three of their charging adapters are being recalled and affected vehicle owners are in the US. Owners of the affected adapters should expect to get a product replacement after three months and have been advised to avoid using the recalled adapters.

Roughly 593,000 units of Subaru vehicles are being recalled due to a defect that could cause serious injuries to occupants, a September 30 report of Fox 6 stated.
Reports revealed that the 2010-2014 models of Outback and Legacy vehicles were equipped with windshield wipers that could catch fire if they emitted too much heat. Subaru explained that overheating of the wiper motors may occur if the wiper arm is blocked by snow from working properly. Subaru and federal regulators were unsure if there are incidents of injuries or crashes involving the recalled vehicles. Subaru dealers will address the problem by offering a free repair and component replacement in the affected vehicles.
