Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
On September 19, 2019, Mr. Roger Hogan (the petitioner) submitted a defect petition to NHTSA's Office of Defects Investigation (ODI). The petition requested that the Agency investigate and recall certain Toyota Prius, Prius PHV, Camry Hybrid and Avalon Hybrid vehicles for a brake actuator solenoid valve wear condition that is currently covered under Toyota Customer Support Programs (CSPs) ZJB and ZKK (subject CSPs). NHTSA opened Defect Petition DP19-004 to evaluate the petitioner's request. Subsequently the petitioner informed NHTSA that he was withdrawing the petition. Since the petitioner has withdrawn the petition, we are denying the petition as moot.
Denial of Motor Vehicle Defect Petition, DP21-001
Document Number: 2021-16926
Type: Notice
Date: 2021-08-09
Agency: National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Department of Transportation
This notice sets forth the reasons for the denial of a petition, DP21-001, submitted by Mr. Derek Colvin to NHTSA (the ``agency'') by a letter dated November 20, 2020. The petition requests that the agency initiate a safety defect investigation into an alleged defect in the reversing light system experienced in certain Model Year (MY) 2013 Porsche 911 Carrera manual transmission vehicles (the ``subject vehicles''). As the driver shifts the gear into reverse, the reversing light fails to illuminate. After conducting a technical review of: (1) The consumer complaint submitted by the petitioner; (2) consumer complaint information in NHTSA's database; and (3) information provided by Porsche in response to our Information Request letter regarding reversing light failure to illuminate and complaints received by Porsche, NHTSA's Office of Defect Investigations (ODI) has concluded that no further investigation of the issue raised by the petition is warranted and the agency, accordingly, has denied the petition.
