Issue

On certain vehicles, a lower loop of a rear shock absorber may separate and detach from its base cup due to an incorrect weld. If a separation were to occur, it could affect vehicle stability and increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. Correction: Dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace one or both rear shock absorbers.
