  1. Status of Defect

The power door lock on the driver's side door may activate during a collision due to insufficient verification of the door lock operation in the event of a side collision. As a result, all doors may become locked during a collision, requiring additional time to rescue occupants.

  1. Improvement Details

The driver's side door lock of all vehicles will be replaced with corrective parts, and the key operation method described in the owner's manual will be corrected. As it will take time to supply the corrective parts, provisional measures will be carried out for customers who request it to prevent the doors from locking during a collision. These measures will render the key unusable for operating the door lock and restrict it to remote control operation only. Customers will then be notified once corrective parts have been prepared for replacement.
