Product title
Passenger car Daihatsu Materia.
Product description
The vehicles were manufactured in the period 2006–2007 and have vehicle identification numbers in the following ranges:- JDAM401S001000053 to JDAM401S001001649, - JDAM402S001000067 to JDAM402S001005976,- JDAM412S001000055 to JDAM412S001000130.
Risk
The product poses a serious risk of injuries because in the universal joint which connects the steering shaft and the gear box, there are tightening bolts that may not have been sufficiently tightened. In such a case, the connecting area concerned may loosen while steering operation is done in stationary state. If a vehicle is used continually in such a condition, abnormal noise may emanate, and in the worst case the connecting area may be possibly detached, leading to eventual loss of steering control.
