1992-2001 Europa Gelaendewagen Recalled

Detroit, MI (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has published a recall affecting the 1992-2001 Europa Gelaendewagen automobiles.  The affected automobiles were manufactured between September 1992 and February 2001.

These sport utility vehicles were built with incorrect labeling on the transmission shifter console. The improper labeling could cause a driver to park the vehicle without applying the parking brake, which could allow the vehicle to roll away and cause a crash or injury.

485 automobiles are affected by this recall.

Dealers will re-label the vehicle console and place a sticker on the console warning of the need to use the parking brake. An owners manual supplement will also be provided explaining the need to use the parking brake.

The manufacturer has reported that owner notification was expected to begin March 21, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Europa at 1-888-538-7672.
