Europa International Recalled

Europa International, Inc.

Models: Europa Gelaendewagen Years: 1992-2001

Number Involved: 485

Dates of Manufacture: September 1992 - February 2001

Defect: 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.

Remedy: Dealers will re-label the vehicle console and place a sticker on the console warning of the need to use the parking brake. An owner=s 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.
