Recalls - 2009 VINTAGE BANDIT

What is a recall? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, generally in cooperation with the vehicle manufacturer, issues recalls when a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment (including tires) does not comply with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or when there is a safety-related defect in the vehicle or equipment. Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner. Please contact your service facilities for additional details and to confirm that this recall is relevant to your particular vehicle.

Defect Description

Vintage Trailers Ltd. (Vintage Trailers) is recalling certain model year 2007-2013 Crystal, Intimidator, Aero, Outlaw, Bandit, and Cargo trailers manufactured January 2007 through May 2013 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

Defect Consequence

If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.

Defect Corrective Action

Vintage Trailers will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on December 13, 2013. Owners may contact Vintage at 1-800-233-5455 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Defect Description

Vintage Trailers Ltd. (Vintage) is recalling certain model year 2009-2016 Intimidator, Aero, Outlaw, Bandit, and Crystal SS triple axles trailers manufactured May 9, 2008, to September 23, 2015. The affected trailers have a Federal Certification Label that incorrectly lists the gross axle weight rating (GAWR) of each axle as 5,200 pounds when the correct GAWR is 5,080 pounds. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 120, "Wheels and Rims- Other than Passenger Cars."

Defect Consequence

If the operator overloads the trailer past the 15,200 pound gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) limit, axle failure may occur, increasing the risk of a crash.

Defect Corrective Action

Vintage will notify owners and will provide a corrected Federal Certification Label, free of charge. The recall began on March 1, 2016. Owners may contact Vintage customer service at 1-800-233-5455.

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
