August 9, 2016

Kibbi is recalling certain 2015-2016 Renegade Vienna vehicles and 2014-16 Renegade Villagio vehicles due to a tire problem.

While checking or filling the rear inner tires, the valve stem extensions may inadvertently be loosened, resulting in a slow air leak.

If the valve stem extensions loosen and allow air to leak, the tires may be underinflated, increasing the risk of tire failure and a crash.

Kibbi will notify owners, and dealers will replace the valve stem extensions free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin in August 2016. The manufacturer has not yet reported how many vehicles are included in the recall.

Owners with questions may contact Kibbi Customer Service at (574) 966-0196.
