Porsche Cars North America Inc. is recalling 7,517 2016-17 911 and Boxster, 2016 Cayman and Panamera vehicles.

The air bag electronic control unit (ECU) may have a defective power supply capacitor that can result in air bag deactivation or inadvertent deployment of the air bags.

Porsche will notify owners, and dealers will install new software and replace the air bag ECU as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Sept. 15.

Porsche's number for this recall is AKB4.

Ford Motor Co. is recalling 57,488 2012 and 2017 Focus vehicles equipped with 2.0L GDI gasoline engines and 2013-14 Focus ST vehicles equipped with 2.0L GTDI engines, previously recalled under 18V-735.

The affected vehicles did not have the powertrain control module (PCM) updated as intended. Therefore, the canister purge valve (CPV) may malfunction, possibly causing excessive vacuum in the fuel vapor management system.

Ford will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the PCM. Dealers will also check for fault codes and replace the CPV as needed. If the CPV is replaced, dealers will inspect and replace the carbon canister, fuel tank and fuel delivery module as necessary. The recall is expected to begin July 29.

Ford's number for this recall is 19S22.

The connection of the positive battery cable at the fuse box terminal may degrade, resulting in an intermittent loss of electrical power.

BMW will notify owners, and dealers will replace and secure the positive battery cable connector, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Aug. 12.

This recall is an expansion of a previous recall, number 18V-314.

Mercedes-Benz USA, LLC. (MBUSA) is recalling certain 2016-17 AMG GTS vehicles.

The bonding between the carbon-fiber driveshaft and the engine/transmission flange may be insufficient, causing the driveshaft to separate while in motion.

Mazda North America Operations is recalling 237 2009-10 Mazda RX-8 vehicles that were previously recalled under recall 18V-017 but have not yet been repaired.

These vehicles are equipped with certain air bag inflators assembled as part of the passenger frontal air bag modules used as original equipment or replacement equipment. In the event of a crash necessitating deployment of the passenger frontal air bag, these inflators may explode due to propellant degradation occurring after long-term exposure to absolute humidity and temperature cycling.

Mazda will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front passenger air bag inflator with an alternate one, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in July.

Mazda's number for this recall is 2618F. This recall supersedes recall 18V017.
