NHTSA Recalls: October 16, 2017

The following recalls have been issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

Forest River Inc. is recalling certain 2018 Forester motorhomes, model FRC3271SF. The Federal Placard may inaccurately state that the vehicle has single rear wheels and tires, when the vehicle is equipped with dual rear wheels and tires. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 120, “Wheels and Rims — Other than Passenger Cars” and fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.” The Federal Placards may cause the operator to not properly maintain the tires and/or wheels. Failure to maintain the tires may lead to improper handling, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. Forest River will notify owners and will provide a corrected Placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin November 28, 2017. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 574-206-7600. Forest River’s number for this recall is 34-0528.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
