The gross vehicle weight (GVWR) and gross axle weight rating (GAWR) as stated on the certification label are in error. Overloading can result in vehicle damage and adversely affect performance, including handling and braking, and tire failure may also result. Dealers will replace the certification label to correct this concern.
