I filled a report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration back in June of 2018 after the Battery compartment door skin debonded, and peeled back on I-40 W near Lebanon,TN The only thing that kept the door skin from completely detaching was about 4″ of sheetmetal trapped by the flange of the door latch. Imagine being on a motorcycle, and seeing a 3X4 foot piece of spinning sheetmetal coming toward you, Or it hitting a windshield !
I recommend to anyone experiencing a Safety issue, to file a report with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration at http://www.safercar.gov
Additionally any Quality Control or Livability, non safety issue should be reported to the Consumer Protection Agency of the Federal Trade Commission, at http://www.ftc.gov
These are the agencies that have the authority to issue Recalls, but they can’t act on issues they are not aware of !
These reports should be filed, regardless of whether or not the Manufacturer/ Dealers repairs the issue.
