IIRC there is a procedure in lieu of letter from the Mfgr, e.g. you want to import a Packard or a Studebaker, or a Chrysler (oh wait, the White House can write a letter on that last one). This came up on a Country Coach recently if memory serves.
There were recalls on brakes on early Alpines, but none that I can recall on 05's, and the recalls that shoulda happened on the 05 rear axles and steer brackets for 04's and later never materialized cuz WRV unmaterialized. Or is that dematerialized?
