Among the recalls the NHTSA has announced recently, comes news of the following:

Logo - Virto AutomotrizVitro Automotriz, SA de CV (“Vitro”), a Villa de García, Nuevo Leon, Mexico establishment, has recalled an estimated 47,366 various aftermarket replacement Rear Window Glass products (“backlites”) sold for use in various Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Dodge, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Infiniti, International, Isuzu, Jeep, Lincoln, Mazda, Mercury, Navistar, Nissan, Oldsmobile, Pontiac, RAM, Saab, Saturn, Scion, Toyota and Volkswagen branded vehicles including passenger cars, pick-up trucks, SUVs and Heavy Duty vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

==> For a full list of vehicles affected please see: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/rcl/2019/RMISC-19E052-0438.pdf

Due to improper tempering, in the event of a rear window glass breaking, the resulting fragments may not be small enough as required under the appropriate Federal regulation. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 205, “Glazing Materials.”

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, larger glass pieces than allowed may strike the vehicle occupants, increasing the risk of injury.

Vitro will notify distributors and registered owners, and replace the rear window glass products, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2019. Owners may contact Vitro customer service at 1-818-863-1524. Vitro’s designation for this recall is DOT287.
