K 2500 Truck 4WD V8-379 6.2L DSL VIN C FI (1989)
Recall - Incorrect or Omitted Certification Label
OA - General Information
INCORRECT OR OMITTED CERTIFICATION LABEL
1989 CK 15-35 LIGHT MODEL TRUCKS BUILT AT OSHAWA TRUCK ASSEMBLY PLANT
The National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, as amended, provides that each vehicle which is subject to a recall campaign of this type must be
adequately repaired within a reasonable time after the owner has tendered it for repair. A failure to adequately repair within 60 days after tender of a
vehicle is prima facie evidence of failure to repair within a reasonable time. If the condition is not adequately repaired within a reasonable time, the
owner may be entitled to an identical or reasonably equivalent vehicle at no charge, or to a refund of the purchase price less a reasonable allowance for
depreciation. To avoid having to provide these burdensome solutions, every effort must be made to promptly schedule appointments with owners and to
repair their vehicles as soon as possible. As you will see in reading the attached copy of the letter which is being sent to owners, the owner is being
instructed to contact the nearest GMC Zone Office if the dealer does not remedy the condition within five days of the mutually agreed upon service date.
If the condition is not remedied within a reasonable time, they are instructed how to contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
General Motors has determined that certain 1989 CK 15-35 light model trucks were produced at the Oshawa Truck Assembly Plant with incorrect or
missing vehicle certification labels. The trucks were assembled correctly. The incorrect information or missing certification labels fail to conform to the
requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards (FMVSS) 120, "Tire Selection and Rims For Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars". To correct
this condition, a new certification label is to be affixed to each affected vehicle.
Since a new certification label can be easily installed and to reduce owner inconvenience, new certification labels will be sent directly to owners of
record. Owners may install the new label or ask a dealer to do the service. Dealer service is to be done at no charge to owners.
Involved are certain 1989 CK 15-35 light model trucks built at Oshawa Truck Assembly Plant within the following VIN breakpoints:
The specific vehicles involved in this campaign have been identified by Vehicle Identification Number Computer Listings. These listings and a new
certification label for each vehicle for which there is no owner of record have been furnished to involved dealers with the campaign bulletin. If a vehicle
has been recently delivered, and the owner's name is not on your VIN listing, please contact the owner to have the new certification label installed. It is
your responsibility to see that the new certification labels are installed on recently sold vehicles.
DEALER CAMPAIGN RESPONSIBILITY
Dealers are to service all vehicles subject to this campaign at no charge to owners, regardless of mileage, age of vehicle, or ownership, from this time
forward. Dealers are to inspect and correct all affected vehicles in new and used vehicle stock prior to their sale. Whenever a vehicle subject to this
campaign is taken into your new or used vehicle inventory, or it
is in your dealership for service in the future, you should take the steps necessary to ensure the campaign correction has been made before reselling or
releasing the vehicle. This bulletin is notice to you that the new motor vehicles involved in this campaign may not comply with the standard identified
above. Under Section 108 of the National Traffic and Motor Vehicle Safety Act, it is illegal for a dealer to sell a new motor vehicle which the dealer
knows does not comply with an applicable Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard. As a consequence, if you sell any of these motor vehicles without
first performing the campaign correction, your dealership may be subject to a civil penalty up to $1,000 for each such sale. If no owner's name and
address were available to GMC Truck Division at the time of campaign initiation, the dealer will determine the owner's name and address from the
dealership sales records. Please provide this information directly on the second copy of the listing next to the applicable VIN so that our records may be
updated and the appropriate notification mailed to the owner. This second copy should then be submitted to the address listed below in the previously
supplied yellow campaign envelopes.
