The contact's vehicle was in an accident on March 3, 2005, the vehicle received damage to the right front wheel. Afterwards, the contact received NHTSA recall campaign 03V496000 on August 10, 2005. Since the vehicle was in an accident the insurance company advised the body shop to install an after market axle to correct the problem. There have been no recall repairs made due to the after-market parts being installed, and the sensors were installed wrongly. The manufacturer has been contacted, and they did not provide assistance.
