1979 Ford Fairmont EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS Recall Report :eek:ut:

so looking at this recall...
is it really that big of a problem, if there even is one, that your car weighs almost 200lbs less than you thought? you could put it on a scale, and think you must have implemented some weight reduction techinques...:thumbsup:

That has to be one of the strangest recalls I ever heard of.

GVWR refers to loaded weight. Gross Vehicle Weight Rating. The problem appears to be that the label overstated the amount of weight you could safely carry.

Yeah I dont get how the Auto MFG's cheated on HP ratings and got away with it. I know they were way off just to make them affordable to insure.

I wonder if any Lawsuits were filed in the 60's and 70's about false lowered HP ratings from Insurance companies and customers?
