This thread will be used to post recalls from the National Traffic Safety Board (NTSB) and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

I had a problem with a Ford Explorer, where in the event of a tire failure the vehicle may roll over. I was lucky, we were on I95 outside of Baltimore doing 65 when the right rear tire went flat. I had my hands full to get it to slow down without flipping. Since then I've kinda watched for safety recalls.

I posted one in the Tire & Wheels thread but, I'm going to move it here.

MrHemi, if there's a better place for this type of information, please feel free to move it.

You are receiving this message because you have requested to be notified if there is a safety recall regarding Child Restraint Systems from NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 08C009
Synopsis:
Graco is recalling 43,994 Comfortsport(TM) convertible car seats, in the Frazier(TM) Fashion, manufactured from November 1, 2006 through October 8, 2007. These seats were equipped with a large sized, supplemental pad or ┐body pillow┐ that partially obscures the child airbag warning label which is on the seat pad. The partial obscuring of this label fails to conform with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 213, ┐Child Restraint Systems┐. Serious injury could occur to the child should the seat be improperly placed in the vehicle. Graco will notify owners and instruct them to discard the supplemental pillows. The pillows are provided for comfort only and do not affect the seat's ability to protect your child in the event of a crash. The recall is expected to begin during December 2008. Owners may contact Graco at 1-800-345-4109 or by e-mail at consumerservices@gracobaby.com.

For more information for this particular recall, please go to 08C009.

You are receiving this message because you have requested to be notified if there is a safety recall regarding Tires from NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 08T028
Synopsis:
This email is being sent to advise you that Dill Air Control Products (Dill) is recalling certain replacement snap-in rubber valve stems, Models Dill APC TR413, TR414, and TR418, sold between November 2006 and July 2007. These valves may lack the required additive to protect the rubber against deterioration from ozone exposure. As a result, affected valve stems, when subject to high levels of ozone, may weather and crack earlier than normal for this product. Over time, such a crack could progress to the point that it leaks air resulting in a loss of tire pressure. Loss of tire pressure can result in a flat tire and/or loss of vehicle control, which could cause a crash without warning. Dill will notify owners and replace the affected valve stems free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 9, 2008. Owners may contact Dill toll-free at 1-888-364-2982 or visit http://www.tirevalverecall.net .

For more information for this particular recall, please go to 08T028.

You are receiving this message because you have requested to be notified if there is a safety recall regarding Child Restraint Systems from NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation.

NHTSA Campaign ID Number: 08C010
Synopsis:
Britax is recalling certain Frontier child restraint systems, Models E9L54E7 (Frontier Red Rock), E9L54H6 (Frontier Rushmore), E9L54H7 (Frontier Pink Sky), E9L54M6 (Frontier Canyon), and E9L5490 (Frontier Sahara), manufactured between April 1 and September 18, 2008. If the harness straps are loosened using one strap at a time, the harness straps may become detached from the metal yoke located on the back of the child seat. Should the harness straps become detached, the child will not be properly restrained, possibly resulting in an increased risk of injury in the event of a vehicle crash. Britax will mail the consumer notice and remedy kits to all registered owners free of charge. Owners that have not registered their seats with Britax must call Britax at 1-704-409-1700 and request a kit. The recall is expected to begin on or about January 7, 2009. Information and instructions related to the campaign will be posted on the Britax website at http://www.britaxusa.com no later than December 17, 2008. Owners with other questions can contact Britax at 1-704-409-1700.
