problem #1

Aug 152011


  • miles
The contact owns a 2009 Dodge Challenger equipped with a kidde fire extinguisher. In 2011, the contact attempted to use the fire extinguisher to extinguish the fire in another vehicle, but it did not function. The fire was eventually extinguished by another vehicle owner with a different fire extinguisher. The contact received notification of NHTSA campaign number: 17V824000 (equipment); however, the kidde manufacturer refused to replace the fire extinguisher because the contact discarded the original equipment due to the failure. The contact stated that the manufacturer exceeded a reasonable amount of time for the recall repair. Parts distribution disconnect.
