This recall is due to a defect caused by the production process as the edge of the rear axle cover is assembled with a recessed edge, which may cause compression due to bending and thus a malfunction in the axle beams or bearings causing the vehicle to malfunction. If the gap was not conforming to the standards, the rear axle box set will be replaced.

These recalls reflect the efforts exerted by the Authority in the field of safety in cooperation with various institutions and companies to maintain the safety of consumers and provide the necessary protection for them and in line with its ongoing keen to conduct ongoing reviews of all products offered in the markets of the Sultanate.
