Certain vehicles do not comply with the requirements of C.M.V.S.S. 209 - Seat Belt Assemblies. Vehicles may have seat belt assemblies that will not withstand the force requirements of the standard. In a crash, if the belt buckle fails, there is an increased risk of injury to the occupant. Correction: Suspect buckle assemblies will be replaced.
Certain vehicles do not comply with the requirements of CMVSS 301 - Fuel System Integrity. The clamp that secures the flexible fuel fill hose to the metal fuel fill tube may be loose and could separate in a crash or rollover. In the presence of an ignition source, a fire could result. Correction: Fuel hose fill neck clamp will be inspected and if necessary, the clamp will be repositioned and tightened.
Certain vehicles equipped with rear drum brakes may exhibit a condition in which the bolt head(s) on the rear spindle rod may separate. There may be a noticeable rattle in the rear suspension. If the remaining portion of the bolt breaks, the wheel can shift, causing rear steering of the vehicle. This could cause the driver to lose control and a crash could occur without prior warning. Correction: Dealers will replace the rear spindle rod bolts on affected vehicles.
