(Honda) has determined that the certification labels for certain Pilot trucks that it produced in 2006 do not comply with S5.3 of 49 CFR 571.120, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 120, ‘‘Tire selection and rims for motor vehicles other than PO 00000 Frm 00085 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 passenger cars.’’ Honda has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, ‘‘Defect and Noncompliance Reports.’’ Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), Honda has petitioned for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. This notice of receipt of Honda’s petition is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition. Affected are a total of approximately 23,000 model year 2006 and 2007 Honda Pilot trucks produced between February 17, 2006 and August 10, 2006. S5.3.2 of FMVSS No. 120 requires that the vehicles shall show the size designation appropriate for the tires. The noncompliant vehicles have certification labels stating that the rim size is 6 inches, when in fact the rim size is 16 inches. Honda has corrected the problem that caused these errors so that they will not be repeated in future production. Honda believes that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety and that no corrective action is warranted. Honda presents the following basis for its petition: First, most vehicle owners, dealers, and tire service technicians would refer to the vehicles’ existing tires and/or the separate Tire Placard to determine the appropriate size for a replacement tire rather than to the Certification Label. Second, if the vehicle owner, dealer or tire service technician read the incorrect rim size on the Certification Label, it would be obvious that a full size vehicle could not use 6 inch wheels. Third, the tire size is listed correctly on the Certification Label. Fourth, the owner’s manual contains the correct rim size information. Fifth, the correct rim size is cast into the wheel itself.

Because the FY 2006 Funding Round is rwilkins on PROD1PC63 with NOTICES DATES: VerDate Aug<31>2005 14:45 Oct 03, 2006 Jkt 211001 now complete, this revised NOFA is being issued for the FY 2007 Funding Round only.

Through the NACA Program, the Fund provides Financial Assistance (FA) awards to Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) that have at least 50 percent of their activities directed toward serving Native American, Alaska Native and/or Native Hawaiian communities (Native CDFIs) in order to build their capacity to better address the community development and capital access needs of their Target Market(s) and to expand into new Investment Areas, Low-Income Targeted Populations, or Other Targeted Populations. Through the NACA Program, the Fund provides Technical Assistance (TA) grants to entities that propose to become Native CDFIs, and to Native organizations, Tribes and Tribal organizations (Sponsoring Entities) that propose to create Native CDFIs, in order to build their capacity to better address the community development and capital access needs of their Target Market(s), to expand into new Investment Areas, Low-Income Targeted Populations, or Other Targeted Populations, or to create Native CDFIs.

American Honda Motor Co., Inc., Receipt of Petition for Decision 
of Inconsequential Noncompliance

    American Honda Motor Co., Inc. (Honda) has determined that the 
certification labels for certain Pilot trucks that it produced in 2006 
do not comply with S5.3 of 49 CFR 571.120, Federal Motor Vehicle Safety 
Standard (FMVSS) No. 120, ``Tire selection and rims for motor vehicles 
other than passenger cars.'' Honda has filed an appropriate report 
pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, ``Defect and Noncompliance Reports.''
    Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h), Honda has petitioned 
for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 
U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is 
inconsequential to motor vehicle safety.
    This notice of receipt of Honda's petition is published under 49 
U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or 
other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition.
    Affected are a total of approximately 23,000 model year 2006 and 
2007 Honda Pilot trucks produced between February 17, 2006 and August 
10, 2006. S5.3.2 of FMVSS No. 120 requires that the vehicles shall show 
the size designation appropriate for the tires. The noncompliant 
vehicles have certification labels stating that the rim size is 6 
inches, when in fact the rim size is 16 inches. Honda has corrected the 
problem that caused these errors so that they will not be repeated in 
future production.
    Honda believes that the noncompliance is inconsequential to motor 
vehicle safety and that no corrective action is warranted. Honda 
presents the following basis for its petition:

    First, most vehicle owners, dealers, and tire service 
technicians would refer to the vehicles' existing tires and/or the 
separate Tire Placard to determine the appropriate size for a 
replacement tire rather than to the Certification Label. Second, if 
the vehicle owner, dealer or tire service technician read the 
incorrect rim size on the Certification Label, it would be obvious 
that a full size vehicle could not use 6 inch wheels. Third, the 
tire size is listed correctly on the Certification Label. Fourth, 
the owner's manual contains the correct rim size information. Fifth, 
the correct rim size is cast into the wheel itself.

    Interested persons are invited to submit written data, views, and 
arguments on this petition. Comments must refer to the docket and 
notice number cited at the beginning of this notice and be submitted by 
any of the following methods. Mail: Docket Management Facility, U.S.
