Reported Problems

4 Total Safety Recalls Found

VISIBILITY:WINDSHIELD WIPER/WASHER:MOTOR

  • Total cars affected: 74965

  • NHTSA campaign: 97V026000

  • Date of the problem: 26/02/1997

THIS CONTAMINATION INTERFERES WITH THE ELECTRICAL CIRCUIT CONTINUITY AND PREVENTS THE WINDSHIELD WIPER MOTOR FROM OPERATING. INOPERATIVE WINDSHIELD WIPERS CAN CONTRIBUTE TO REDUCED VISIBILITY DURING INCLEMENT WEATHER INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH.

SUSPENSION:FRONT:SPRINGS:COIL SPRINGS

  • Total cars affected: 64967

  • NHTSA campaign: 98V245000

  • Date of the problem: 06/10/1998

IF THE FRONT COIL SPRING BREAKS, IT CAN BECOME DISPLACED FROM ITS SEATED POSITION, AND CAN CONTACT A TIRE. TIRE DAMAGE CAN RESULT.

SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM

  • Total cars affected: 46828

  • NHTSA campaign: 02V341000

  • Date of the problem: 20/12/2002

SEVERE CORROSION COULD RESULT IN PERFORATION AND POTENTIAL FRACTURE OF THE FRONT LOWER CONTROL ARM. IF THIS FRACTURE OCCURS, THE TIRE AND WHEEL ASSEMBLY REMAINS CONNECTED TO THE CHASSIS THROUGH THE FORWARD LOWER CONTROL ARM PIVOT POINT AND THROUGH THE STRUT ATTACHMENT TO THE UPPER WHEELHOUSE. REDUCED CONTROL OF THE FRONT WHEEL LOCATION INCREASES THE RISK OF A CRASH.

SUSPENSION:FRONT:CONTROL ARM:LOWER ARM

  • Total cars affected: 23070

  • NHTSA campaign: 96V113000

  • Date of the problem: 01/07/1996

THE SHIFTED LOCATION CAN RESULT IN IMPROPER WHEEL ALIGNMENT AND INCREASED STEERING EFFORT INCREASING THE POTENTIAL FOR A VEHICLE ACCIDENT.
