Injuries

 

In the concerned vehicles, preliminary damage can be caused to the tyres through intensive use. Consequently an abrupt loss of air or even a blowout caused by the tyre heating up after long transportation drives on motorway/express roads and at high speeds cannot be excluded. An abrupt loss of air or a tyre blowout could impair the road behaviour of the vehicle and its driving stability.

Suffocation,
Strangulation

 

The plastic mattress base can easily be lifted: a child could be trapped underneath and suffocate. There are protruding parts to which garments of children could get hanged, causing strangulation.

In addition, the presence of long cords and strings may also cause strangulation. Also, the defective locking mechanism may cause the cot to fold inadvertently, causing injuries to the child and the gap between the side bars and the changing unit is too large, which may cause entrapment of fingers between the unit and the side of the cot.

The product does not comply with the relevant European standard EN 716.

Asphyxiation,
Fire

Exhaust gases from the auxiliary heating may consequently not be evacuated correctly and might to some extent penetrate the vehicle interior leading to a risk of carbon monoxide poisoning of the passengers. There is also a risk of the underbody panelling catching fire.

Environment

 

An incorrect calibration setting in the Engine Control Module (ECM) software may cause miscalculation of sulfur oxide (SOx) levels captured within the Lean NOx Trap (LNT) component of the exhaust’s Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). This miscalculation could, with extended operation under certain driving conditions, affect the purge process applied to remove SOx particles from the DPF-LNT. In this condition, the capacity of the DPF-LNT may become saturated and, as a result, the nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions from the vehicle could exceed the permitted level.
