Recall Details

A cross member may detach from the luggage compartment support bracket, resulting in contact with the fuel system and a fuel leak. Dealers will secure the cross member with additional rivets free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

A cross member under the vehicle may detach from the attaching bracket at the luggage compartment area. This can contact the fuel system and result in a fuel leak, which would create a fire hazard.
