Ban Achilles Buatan Indonesia di-Recall di Amerika Serikat

/ 13 April 2012

WASHINGTON (dp) — Badan Adminsitrasi Keselamatan Jalan Raya Nasional, AS (NTHSA) dilaporkan telah meminta recall terhadap ban produksi Indonesia yang dipasarkan di Amerika Serikat.

Dalam laporan resmi NHTSA yang dijawab pada 5 April 2012 itu menyatakan Ban Achilles buatan PT Multistrada Arah Sarana, Tbk model Desert Hawk A/P dan Radar Radial RLT-9 berada di bawah standar ketentuan keselamatan kendaraan bermotor No. 139.

Ketentuan nomor itu sendiri mengatur tentang masalah pneumatic pada ban radial untuk kendaraan ringan.

NHTSA melaporkan permukaan “kembang” yang bersinggungan dengan dinding samping ban pada model Desert Hawk terlalu tipis. Sementara model Radar mengalami masalah pada dinding samping sehingga mengurangi wilayah tapak.

Masalah ini diakui NHTSA bisa meningkatkan peluang terjadinya kecelakaan dan tabrakan, terutama bila ban kekurangan tekanan angin.

Otoritas resmi pemerintah AS yang telah banyak merecall kendaraan ini menghitung Multistrada perlu menarik sebanyak 36.592 unit ban tersebut dari pasar AS.

Pihak NHTSA juga meminta Multistrada yang memiliki pabrik di Bekasi, Jawa Barat melukan pemanggilan terhadap konsumen ban tersebut guna melakukan penggantian ban gratis. NHTSA meminta pemanggilan itu dilakukan sepanjang April 2012.

Sejauh ini belum ada tanggapan resmi dari Multistrada berkait isyu recall ban produksinya. Dapurpacu.com bahkan telah mencoba menghubungi sumber di Multistrada melalui telepon, namun tidak ada respon.

Seperti diketahui, ban Achilles Desert Hawk AP yang terkena recall di AS ikut dijual di Indonesia. [dp/GRG]
