Recall Details

Concern :DIRECTIONAL CONTROL COULD BE COMPROMISED
Description :There is a possibility that a strut top mounting bearing could be damaged when a high load is applied to the strut, such as when the vehicle is driven over a large bump. If this occurs, there could be abnormal noise when driving on uneven roads or when turning the steering wheel. If the vehicle continues to be operated, the upper side of the strut rod could separate, causing a loss of vehicle stability, which could increase the risk of a crash.
Remedial Action :Recall the vehicles that are likely to be affected and replace the strut mounting bearings with improved ones. If a strut mounting bearing is found to be damaged, the dealer will replace the strut and front suspension support sub-assembly with a new one.
