June 7, 2024
NHTSA’s latest safety notices feature incorrectly installed tires and improperly aligned headlights.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently issued recall notices for commercial vehicles, including brands from General Motors and Rivian. 

Owners of the affected vehicles should be contacted via U.S. mail over the next two months, but fleet and independent owners of these vehicles can contact the NHTSA Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit nhtsa.gov for more details. More information on each recall can be found below.

Rivian EDV & R1T headlights improperly aligned

Rivian Automotive is recalling certain 2023-2024 EDV and R1T vehicles because the headlights may be improperly aimed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamp, Reflective Devices and Associated Equipment." Improperly aimed headlights can result in insufficient illumination of the road, decreasing the driver's visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

This recall potentially affects 2,334 vehicles. Rivian will inspect and adjust the headlight alignment as necessary. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 6. Owners may contact Rivian customer service at 888-748-4264. Rivian's number for this recall is FSAM-1445.

A tire label that does not accurately reflect the installed tires may result in the installation of incorrectly sized tires. In addition, the TPMS may not warn the driver of a drop in tire pressure. Both of these scenarios can increase the risk of a crash.

This recall potentially affects 56 vehicles. Dealers will inspect and replace the tires as necessary. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed July 8. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is N242444030.
