2004 SALEEN S7
NHTSA Campaign ID: 05V049000
Component: EXTERIOR LIGHTING
Manufacturer: SALEEN, INC.
Manufacture Dates: 05/12/2002 - 11/05/2004
Potential Units Affected: 24
Defect Description:
CERTAIN TWO-SEATER COUPES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH THE REQUIREMENTS OF FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLE SAFETY STANDARD NO. 108, "LAMPS, REFLECTIVE DEVICES, AND ASSOCIATED EQUIPMENT." THE FRONT SIDE MARKER LIGHT, THAT IS BEHIND THE FRONT WHEEL, NEEDS TO BE AS FAR FORWARD ON THE VEHICLE AS PRACTICAL.
Consequence:
INAPPROPRIATE, NON-STANDARD SIDE MARKER LIGHTS COULD REDUCE VISIBILITY OF VEHICLES AND INCREASE THE POTENTIAL FOR A CRASH.
Action to take:
DEALERS WILL CHANGE THE DESIGN TO HAVE THE FRONT SIDE MARKER LIGHT IN FRONT OF THE WHEEL AND ON THE SIDE OF THE BUMPER. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN APRIL 2005. OWNERS MAY CONTACT SALEEN AT 949-597-3837.
