Erwin Hymer Group USA LP dba American Fastbacks (American Fastbacks) is recalling certain 2017-2018 Badlands, Force Recon, Stryker, and Defcon models of modified-Jeep Wrangler vehicles. These vehicles may be between 400 and 600 pounds above the allowable Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) due to the replacement parts that were installed on the vehicle which increased the overall weight.
The excessive weight can negatively impact the vehicle stability, increasing the risk of crash.
The remedy for this recall is still under development. Owners were notified by mail beginning April 18, 2019. Owners may contact Erwin Hymer customer service at 1-844-533-7997 extension 301.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
