Download as PDF Federal Register / Vol. 78, No. 93 / Tuesday, May 14, 2013 / Notices vehicles and found no complaints matching the subject noncompliance. In consideration of the foregoing, NHTSA has determined that Nissan has met its burden of persuasion that the subject FMVSS No. 208 telltale noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. Accordingly, Nissan’s petition is hereby granted, and Nissan is exempted from the obligation of providing notification of, and a remedy for, the subject noncompliance under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, this decision only applies to approximately 102,254 vehicles that Nissan no longer controlled at the time that it determined that a noncompliance existed in the subject vehicles. However, the granting of this petition does not relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, or introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after Nissan notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.
