VIN (Vehicle identification number)
What are the defects?
There is a possibility that an intermittent Output Shaft Speed Sensor failure may result in an unintended downshift into first gear.
What are the hazards?
If the failure occurs while the vehicle is in use, it could cause an abrupt wheel speed reduction. This may cause the rear tyres to slide or lock up until the vehicle speed slows, which could result in a loss of vehicle control.
