Recall Category: Power Train – Drive Shaft may corrode and fail

NHTSA Safety Notification 20V770000 reports the Drive Shafts’ protective coating may not have been applied properly during manufacturing, making it more susceptible to damage from road salt, or other contaminants, and potentially cause it to break.

According to the NHTSA, a broken Drive Shaft may cause a sudden loss of drive power. The vehicle could also roll away if the Parking Brake has not been applied before the vehicle has been exited. Either condition can increase the risk of a crash, motor vehicle collision (“MVC”) or other impact event with consequential serious injury and/or life-changing results.

==> If you have a medical emergency, please contact 9-1-1, your closest hospital or emergency center equipped to properly treat lacerations, concussions, bone fractures, amputation, central nervous system (“CNS”) damage and/or internal injuries.

Please note that under 49 United States Code § 30112(a), it is illegal for anyone, including a manufacturer, distributor, dealer or retailer to sell an item of equipment or vehicle that fails to comply with all applicable Federal motor vehicle safety standards.
