The rear axle alignment may not have been inspected after the repairs for an earlier recall were performed.

Rear-axle misalignment may cause premature or uneven tire wear, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Dealers will inspect the rear axle, adjust the alignment if necessary, and replace any prematurely or unevenly worn tires free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on March 25, 2022.
