Accessory Hood Scoop As Installed May Loosen And Detach From The Hood

Recall Details

Vehicles equipped with an add on accessory hood scoop may have the scoop detach from the vehicle due to faulty adhesive. Dealers will mechanically fasten the scoop to the hood free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles equipped with an add on accessory hood scoop, the adhesive securing the hood scoop to the hood may fail, resulting in the scoop detaching from the vehicle. This could lead to a crash.
