Description of Defect: The back light bulbs for the liquid crystal display for the gear shift position (PRNDL) and the odometer were not properly installed. If the bulbs fall out, the display may be difficult to read.

NHTSA said manufacturers are required to mail a recall notice to all purchasers, owners and dealers when a safety defect or noncompliance with Federal safety standards is found. The agency urges owners to wait until they receive notification from the manufacturer before contacting their dealers to schedule the repair work. Not all vehicles of a particular make and model may be subject to the recall.
