    CONTINUED CHAFFING CAN CAUSE THE ANTICORROSION COATING OF THIS BRAKE LINE TO FAIL, ALLOWING THE BRAKE LINE TO RUST THROUGH AND LEADING TO LOSS OF BRAKE FLUID, FAILURE OF THE REAR BRAKE CIRCUIT, AND EXTENDED STOPPING DISTANCES, AND A POSSIBLE CRASH.

    STEERING: STEERING WHEEL/HANDLE BAR

    • Total cars affected: 190

    • NHTSA campaign: 00V010000

    • Date of the problem: 18/01/2000

    OPERATION OF THE VEHICLE, ESPECIALLY IN ROUGH ROAD CONDITIONS, CAN CAUSE THE CLEARANCE BETWEEN THE COLLAR AND THE STEERING RACK TO INCREASE TO THE POINT WHERE THE INPUT SHAFT CAN SEPARATE FROM THE RACK, RESULTING IN A LOSS OF STEERING CAPABILITY.

    EU rapid alert system

    • Risk level: 1

    • Rapex alert: A12/0484/19

    • Date of the problem: 22/03/2019

    Owing to retrofitting of the steering wheel, certain vehicles may be equipped with a driver airbag that has a gas generator which could burst in the event of airbag activation if it has been exposed to moisture and heat cycles over time. This may result in metal parts being discharged, which could lead to injury or death of the vehicle occupants.

    EU rapid alert system

    • Risk level: 1

    • Rapex alert: A12/0266/17

    • Date of the problem: 03/03/2017

    If the driver’s airbag is deployed, the inflator might burst if it was subject to high air humidity, high temperatures and substantial temperature fluctuations over a number of years. This may result in the ejection of metal parts, which could cause injury or death to the driver and the passengers.
