Webasto is in the news again for another sunroof recall. According
to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), Hollandia
700, Hollandia 600 and Hollandia TVS 900 series sunroofs installed
by Columbus Car Audio are being recalled. These recalls are the
latest in a string of sunroof recalls for Webasto, dating back to
"The adhesive bond between the glass and the metal frame can
de-bond increasing the risk that the sunroof glass would separate
from the vehicle," reads a report from the NHTSA. "Complete
glass-to-frame de-bonding can develop gradually and may be evidenced
by metal corrosion around the sunroof frame, wind noise, vibration
visual bond separation and/or water leakage."
The latest recall applies to 333 vehicles that had sunroofs installed
at Columbus Car Audio. Webasto is sending out notices to the owners
of affected vehicles and will be offering to perform the sunroof
repairs at their own expense.
According to reports from the NHTSA, the recall could affect more
than 292,867 sunroofs sold as aftermarket equipment for a variety
of passenger vehicles.
Columbus Car Audio has locations in both Columbus, Ohio, and Reynoldsburg,
