Check if your Vehicle has a Recall

 


Chronology :

On June 19, 2023, GST received one field report describing the condition of a 2023 RAV4 XLE vehicle with 17” black alloy wheels installed by GST exhibiting low air pressure in two wheels. The dealership indicated that the tire valve stem was not fully seated in the wheels resulting in air leaking from the valve stem. Based on vehicle inspections, review of the installation process, instructions and procedures, GST found that the installation process for installing rubber valve stems on the 17” black alloy wheels could result in the tire valve stem not being fully seated and/or damaged and determined that a safety recall was warranted. During the review process, GST also found that an incorrect weight for the factory standard wheels was used in the load carrying capacity modification label calculations which caused the labels on the affected vehicles to be overstated by 2 pounds. Since the incorrect label is not within one percent (1%) of the additional weight, the vehicles are not compliant with the FMVSS.
