Transport Canada Recall # 2016640
Recall Date: 2016/12/19
Notification Type: Safety Mfr
Manufacturer Recall Number: 16S45
Units Affected: 964
Category: Light Truck & Van
Certain vehicles may be missing a support bracket where the front fuel tank strap attaches to the frame. Through continued use, the lack of reinforcement could lead to the fuel tank strap separating from the frame. If this occurs, the fuel tank could move out of position, potentially contacting the ground and causing a fuel leak. A fuel leak, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire causing property damage and/or personal injury.
Correction: Dealers will install reinforcement brackets as necessary.
