YOUR RV HAS ITS OWN WARRANTY—AND LEGAL ISSUES

Warranties, sales and lease fraud, and deceptive practices in Ohio

By Judy Malmon

Recreational vehicles, which include motorhomes and trailers, have become a huge market in the states. Approximately 6.75 million households reported owning an RV in 2017, and the industry claimed sales increases of 15 percent over the previous year. And, contrary to what you might think, buyers are getting younger: more than half are under the age of 45.

With the surge in RV ownership has come all the accompanying things that can go wrong with an expensive auto purchase—everything from engine or parts failures to interior issues, like a wonky fridge or leaky roof. And while these may sound like vastly different problems, you can go to one lawyer for all of your RV issues.

While most of the applicable laws are the same as automobiles, the consumer warranties are considerably different, says Dayton consumer law attorney Ronald Burdge, who’s been handling RV cases for more than 30 years.

“Recreational vehicles are just fascinating—in terms of the clientele, the consumers who buy them, and the RV companies who do everything they can to keep from having any responsibility,” he says. “You’ve got pop-up campers that might only cost a few thousand dollars, all the way up to million-dollar-plus RVs. There’s also a tremendous amount of fifth-wheel trailers, with no motor or engine; you just tow it, and the average cost of one of those is around $125,000. It’s not a motor vehicle, but it’s still a consumer product.”

SUMMARY:

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2002-2004 Saturn Vue vehicles manufactured September 11, 2001, to April 6, 2004. In the affected vehicles, it may be possible for the key to be removed from the ignition when the ignition is not in the "Off" position.

Chrysler Group says it is investigating complaints about an array of electronic glitches, including potentially dangerous engine stalling, that could afflict millions of its most-popular models.   At this time no recall has been launched.  This is just the first step in getting to that point and many times do not lead into a recall.

The fault could be linked the TIPM (Total Integrated Power Module).  The complaints say a faulty TIPM can make electrical accessories, such as power windows and theft alarms, operate unexpectedly even when the ignition's not on and neither the key nor the driver is in or near the car.  Some of the hundreds of complaints say the vehicles can quit running, leaving them stalled in dangerous traffic situations.

Stalling not only kills the engine, but also shuts off power assist for steering and brakes, and depending on a vehicle's design it can also disable airbags.

This fault has been linked possibly to a TIPM that they have installed in the vehicles since 2007 which could affect millions of vehicles made from 2007 through the current year model.

Have you been experiencing an electrical gremlin in your vehicle?   You just might have a lemon on your hands.

SUMMARY:

General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Cadillac ATS vehicles manufactured April 23, 2012, to March 20, 2014, and 2014 Cadillac CTS vehicles manufactured June 10, 2013, to March 20, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the transmission shift cable may detach from either the bracket on the transmission shifter or the bracket on the transmission.

CONSEQUENCE:

If the transmission shift cable detaches while the vehicle is being driven, the transmission gear selection may not match the indicated gear and the vehicle may move in an unintended or unexpected direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Furthermore, when the driver goes to stop and park the vehicle, despite selecting the 'PARK' position, the transmission may not be in 'PARK.' If the vehicle is not in the 'PARK' position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the vehicle or anytime thereafter. A vehicle rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.

REMEDY:

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles to make sure the cable is properly seated at the transmission and shifter brackets, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early August 2014. Owners may contact Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006. GM's number for this recall is 14179.

Kia Motors Corporation (Kia) is recalling certain model year 2014 Kia Soul vehicles manufactured July 21, 2013, through January 17, 2014.

REMEDY:

SUMMARY:

Thor Industries is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Outlaw 29H motorcoaches manufactured January 13, 2014, through April 25, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the generator exhaust may be routed too close to the onboard propane storage tank without the necessary heat shielding. Additionally, the generator exhaust ends underneath a slide-out room.

CONSEQUENCE:

Due to the exhaust's proximity and the lack of heat shielding, the hot exhaust piping could heat the propane tank and cause it to expand and vent off any build up of pressure, increasing the risk of a fire. The exhaust exiting below a slide out room may cause carbon monoxide to enter the vehicle, increasing the risk of asphyxiation.

GM Halts delivery and sales of the Chevrolet Cruze due the recent recalls on the airbags.

Some of the cars may have a "suspect" driver's side airbag inflator module, according to a stop-delivery order sent to Chevy dealers nationwide on Tuesday and obtained byAutomotive News.

"The inflator module may have been assembled with an incorrect part," the notice reads.

This along with all the other recalls is putting a strain on the dealerships to make month end numbers.
