Instrument Panel and Glove Box Do Not Provide Proper Crash Protection

Recall Details

The instrument panel and glove compartment may not be manufactured to proper crash protection standards. Dealers will replace the glove compartment assembly and in some vehicles modify the instrument panel structure free of charge to resolve the concern.
