If this occurs and any portion of the operator's body is under the vehicle, the potential for personal injury exists.

Equipment — Mechanical — Jacks

Summary
Vehicle description: Passenger vehicles. These vehicles have jacking instructions which, if followed, could cause the vehicle operator to place the jack on a frame weld when attempting to raise a rear wheel. If the vehicle is jacked up with the jack placed on the frame weld and if the vehicle is free to roll (wheels not blocked or chocked), the jack could yield and the vehicle may drop suddenly.
Actions
Owners will be provided with a revised jack instruction and stowage card and jack warning label, as well as a supplement to the owner guide.
