Recall 16V889000

Front Suspension Control Arms Separate From Steering Knuckles

Recall Details

The front lower control arms may separate from the steering knuckles due to improper assembly from the factory. Dealers will replace the hardware that connects the control arm to the knuckle free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The fasteners that secure the front suspension control arms to the steering knuckles may not be assembled properly. This could result in separation of front suspension components while driving which could result in an accident.
