Issue

On certain vehicles with folding seats and a total permissible weight of under 4536 kg (10,000 lbs), the information label for body builders contains incorrect information regarding the unloaded vehicle weight (UVW). The purpose of the label is to provide fuel consumption relevant weight information, however, if a body builder were to refer to the incorrect UVM information, the maximum permissible UVW may be exceeded after the vehicle modification is complete, which in the event of a crash, could increase risk of injury and/or property damage. Correction: Dealers will replace the label and check that the UVW is not exceeded.
