Injuries

The product poses a risk of injuries because some vehicles may have been delivered or repaired with a Dynamic Power Steering (DPS) that has cracks on its main shaft. Pieces may detach inside the DPS and may block gears resulting in a sudden limitation of the vehicle's steering range. In some situations, the operator could lose control of the vehicle causing the risk of an accident.

2 cases of steering interference due to this condition have been reported.

The product does not comply with the Machinery Directive.

Enforcement is a top priority of the EU Consumer Policy Strategy 2007-2013. Both measures leading to RAPEX notifications and measures which come to the attention of the Commission and other Member States as reactionsare indications of enforcement activity in the Member State concerned.

In order to give a better view on the overall level of enforcement, including the follow-up activities of the national market surveillance authorities, the Commission RAPEX team has decided to publish on the RAPEX website also the names of the countries that have found the notified product on their market and have taken appropriate measures (and have submitted a reaction to a RAPEX notification as a consequence).

Information about the reacting countries is available in the RAPEX weekly overviews in the column 'Products were found and measures were taken also in'. The Commission RAPEX team will publish reactions sent (from May2009 onwards) to 2009 RAPEX notifications.

DISCLAIMER: If not specified in the report, the risk and non-compliance refer to a risk for consumer health and safety
