FCA Australia Pty Ltd — Vehicle Jack supplied with 2018 Alfa Romeo 630 Stelvio Vehicles
What are the defects?
In select vehicles, the supplied jack‘s label does not comply with the mandatory standard ‘Trade Practices Act 1974 Consumer Protection Notice No. 1 of 2010 Consumer Product Safety Standard for Vehicle Jacks’. The jack label is missing some of the required information.
What are the hazards?
If the jack is mislabelled, and does not have correct safety information, the occupant may misuse it on a different vehicle or in a way it was not designed for. Misuse may cause jack instability or failure. If a consumer is under the vehicle, this may lead to a vehicle collapsing causing severe injury or death.
What should consumers do?
Affected consumers should contact their local authorised Alfa Romeo dealer for a free inspection. If the jack is found to be affected, a free replacement label that meets the mandatory standard will be fitted.
For further information, consumers can call 1800 870 724 (Monday to Friday, 8am – 8pm AEST) or visit: https://www.alfaromeo.com.au/contact-us.html
