Latest Recalls

I thought I would start a thread to post info on the latest recalls going out. You can sign up for these recalls notices at Home | National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Looks like a few different brands of tires are out there made from a bad batch of rubber compound.

Synopsis:
TBC Corporation (TBC) is recalling certain Sigma Stampede Radial SUV tires, size P265/70R17, equipped with DOT code UTT6TX60112. Contaminated rubber may have been used in the tread compound which could result in tread separation. Tread separation can result in loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash. TBC will notify owners, and dealers will replace the tires free of charge. Free mounting and balancing will also be included, as applicable. The recall is expected to begin on July 2, 2012.

One suspects the recalls are posted on the management coffee room blackboard ?????? I doubt much mail is sent out detailing them?

Dave, great find. I'm suppose to have 4400lb axles and my VIN isn't showing a recall. I think I better get under there and look for a part number on the axles themselves though!

Gene...we did a get a recall notice letter that included two small squares of reflective tape to add to the back of the rig below the tail lights. I thought that was a pretty lame "solution" to the problem.

We did not use them. I bought strips of red and white reflective tape like you see on the bumpers of trucks and applied to the rear bumper...it not only looks great but no one is going to miss seeing the back end our Bambi in the dark when they shine their headlights on it.

Airstream, Inc. (Airstream) is recalling 2013-2014 Airstream Interstate recereational vehicles manufactured August 2012 through October 2013.
