NHTSA safety recall results (2)

Recall information provided by National Highway Traffic Safety Administration

Component not known

On certain minivans equipped with child restraint anchorages (tether anchorages) for use in conjunction with child restraints installed in the three rearmost seating positions, the "Safety First" portion of the Owner's Manual delivered with these vehicles incorrectly instructs owners to guide the tether strap underneath the seat's head restraint and to raise the head restraint slightly, if necessary. If the owner follows these instructions, the head restraint could accidentally separate from the seat in the event of a crash and cause injury to any child occupant seated in the tethered child seat.
Owners will be sent a new "Safety First" booklet that will contain corrected use instructions. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 24, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact VWoA at 1-800-822-8987.
