Recall 17V637000

Front Coil Springs Corrode And Fracture

Recall Details

The front coil springs may corrode and fracture due to exposure to road salt. A spring that fractures may contact a tire, puncturing it. Dealers will replace both front col springs free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The front coil springs may corrode and as a result fracture, due to exposure to road salt in states that use it for clearing ice and snow. If a coil spring fractures, it may contact the tire, possibly puncturing it increasing the risk of a crash.
