MMNA’s Petition: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) (see ADDRESSES: E:\FR\FM\08SEN1.SGM 08SEN1 53912 Federal Register / Vol. 80, No. 173 / Tuesday, September 8, 2015 / Notices implementing rule at 49 CFR part 556), MMNA submitted a petition 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 MMNA’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. II. Vehicles Involved: Affected are approximately 300 MY 2015 Mitsubishi Outlander Sport multipurpose passenger vehicles manufactured between December 8, 2014 and December 22, 2014. III. Noncompliance: MMNA explains that the quarter panel window glazing installed in the subject vehicles were labeled with the manufacturer’s model number ‘‘M–66’’, indicating a tempered glass construction and ‘‘AS2’’, incorrectly indicating the glass is relatively transparent (light transmission of at least 70%). The correct manufacturer’s model number, which should have been affixed to the quarter panel glass window, is ‘‘M–131’’ (which corresponds to a tempered ‘‘privacy’’ glass construction and a light transmission of 25%). IV. Rule Text: Paragraph S6 of FMVSS No. 205 requires in pertinent part: providing recall notification of noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118 and remedying the recall noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120 should be granted. 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, any decision on this petition only applies to the subject vehicles that MMNA no longer controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. However, any decision on 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 MMNA notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:
    I. MMNA's Petition: Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) 
(see

[[Page 53912]]

implementing rule at 49 CFR part 556), MMNA submitted a petition 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 MMNA'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.
    II. Vehicles Involved: Affected are approximately 300 MY 2015 
Mitsubishi Outlander Sport multipurpose passenger vehicles manufactured 
between December 8, 2014 and December 22, 2014.
    III. Noncompliance: MMNA explains that the quarter panel window 
glazing installed in the subject vehicles were labeled with the 
manufacturer's model number ``M-66'', indicating a tempered glass 
construction and ``AS2'', incorrectly indicating the glass is 
relatively transparent (light transmission of at least 70%). The 
correct manufacturer's model number, which should have been affixed to 
the quarter panel glass window, is ``M-131'' (which corresponds to a 
tempered ``privacy'' glass construction and a light transmission of 
25%).
    IV. Rule Text: Paragraph S6 of FMVSS No. 205 requires in pertinent 
part:

    S6 Tire Markings. Except as specified in paragraphs, each tire 
shall be marked on each sidewall with the information specified in 
paragraphs (a) through (j) of this section. . .

    V. Summary of MMNA's Analyses: MMNA stated its belief that the 
subject noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety for 
the following reasons:

    (A) MMNA stated that the quarter panel glass windows otherwise 
meet all other marking and performance requirements of FMVSS No. 
205.
    (B) MMNA believes that because the affected glazing fully meets 
all of the applicable performance requirements, the absence of the 
correct ``M'' number in their monogram has no effect upon the degree 
of driver visibility or the possibility of occupants being thrown 
through the vehicle windows in a collision.
    (C) MMNA stated its belief that NHTSA has previously granted 
inconsequential noncompliance petitions regarding what it believes 
are similar noncompliances.
    (D) MMNA is not aware of any crashes, injuries, customer 
complaints or field reports associated with this condition.

    In summation, MMNA believes that the described noncompliance of the 
subject vehicles is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety, and that 
its petition, to exempt MMNA from providing recall notification of 
noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30118 and remedying the recall 
noncompliance as required by 49 U.S.C. 30120 should be granted.
    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, any decision on 
this petition only applies to the subject vehicles that MMNA no longer 
controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. 
However, any decision on 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 MMNA 
notified them that the subject noncompliance existed.
