1998-2000 Daewoo Lanos Recalled

Washington, DC (SafetyAlerts) - The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has published the recall of certain 1998-2000 Daewoo Lanos automobiles, manufactured between October 1997 - September 1999, because on certain vehicles equipped with alloy wheels, the wheels were manufactured without the steel bushing inserts around the wheel bolt openings.

This situation has caused increased friction between the wheel bolt seats and the wheel bolts. This can result in the bolts loosening during hard braking. The wheels could detach from the vehicle.

Approximately 2,800 vehicles are affected by this recall.  Dealers will re-torque the wheel bolts and will update the owner's manual wheel bolt torque specification.

Owner notification was expected to begin during December 1999. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Daewoo at 1-877-463-2396.

[NHTSA Recall No. 99V336]
