Forest River RVs Recalled for Rollaway Risk

Serving Los Angeles, Riverside, Ventura, San Bernardino Counties & Nearby Areas of California

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently announced a recall for certain motor homes manufactured by Forest River, Inc. According to reports, drivers may be able to remove the key from the ignition while the vehicle is still running, which violates the “Theft Protection” rule required by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 114 and could cause the vehicle to roll away after the driver has left the unit. This recall affects 2013 Concord, Forester, Freelander, Leprechaun, Lexington, and Sunseeker class B and class C models. NHTSA does not know how many total vehicles will be affected by the recall. These vehicles are built on Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana chassis. General Motors are handling the recall for Forest River and will be replacing the ignition lock cylinder and the keys without charge starting sometime in February. Owners can contact GM at (866) 996-9463 and Chevrolet at (800) 630-2438, or Forest River at (574) 389-4600.
