Description of Defect:

On certain vehicles, the torque applied to the t-bolt clasps on the transmission auxiliary air tank straps may have been over-torqued potentially causing deformation to the strap where the t-bolt is anchored. The deformation may allow the tbolt to disconnect from the strap allowing the tank to drop to the ground, which may result in debris on the road presenting a risk to other road users.

Dealer's Responsibility:

The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act and Canadian Motor Vehicle Safety Act requires dealers to ensure that all new and used vehicles are free of safety defects and comply with all relevant safety standards at the time of delivery to the consumer.

Dealers should make their personnel aware of the safety recall. In the event that a dealer has a vehicle included in the safety recall in their inventory to be sold, the condition must be corrected before releasing it to a customer.
