Recall 19V387000

Rear Quarter Windows Made With Tempered Glass Instead Of Laminated Glass

Recall Details

The rear quarter windows of the vehicle may be made with tempered glass instead of laminated glass, increasing risk of injury in an accident. Dealers will replace the tempered glass windows with laminated glass windows free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The rear quarter windows of the vehicle may be made of tempered glass instead of required laminated glass. This increases risk of injury in an accident in which the windows are broken, such as in a side impact or rollover.
