Manufacturer Recalls WF-120V for Incorrectly Installed Windshields
December 17, 2009

Wildfire Motors Inc., a distributor of electric cars, scooters and bikes, has issued a recall for its 2009 Wildfire WF 120V due to incorrectly installed windshields on the vehicles. The recall was issued on December 3 via the National Traffic Highway and Safety Administration (NHTSA). The total number of vehicles affected is 42.

According to the announcement, the windshields in the two-door passenger coupes don't comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 500, "Low Speed Vehicle," and the incorrect glass was used within them.

The vehicles were made by an unknown manufacturer, according to the noncompliance report filed with NHTSA. Wildfire points out that it has not been able to contact the manufacturer, and "may no longer be in business."

"Should an object strike and shatter the windshield of the vehicle personal injuries could occur increasing the risk of a crash," reads the announcement.

Dealers will replace the windshields for those affected, according to the NHSA announcement, and Wildfire may be contacted at 740/283-6540.
