Adventure Kings recall: Neoprene Seat Covers

A recall for punters who have purchased the Adventure Kings Neoprene Seat Covers from 4WD Supacentre between January 3 2019 – March 7 2019 has been released by the ACCC. You can find all the details on the recall here.

Thankfully this recall doesn’t relate to 12V fridges spontaneously combusting, but is not without safety concerns. The seat covers supplied by 4WD Supacentre appear to be labelled incorrectly, and also contain two right or left-hand seat covers, instead of one for each side. Where this is of concern, is that it will stop seat airbags from deploying in the case of an accident on one side.

Should you have purchased a set within this date, chances are you will have noticed the miss-match between the covers, and the ACCC is suggesting that consumers return their products for replacement as soon as possible.

If you’re one of the impacted consumers, you can complete an online warranty/repair form found here, or you can return it to the store you have purchased it from.

If nothing else, this recall has finally given us an answer to the age-old question, that two rights do indeed make a wrong.

  • Funny you don’t see Shauno and Graham banging on about Kings gear anymore. Their vehicles are now kitted out with the best gear from reputable brands probably from all the kickback money they made from flogging Kings gear for the past 5+ years. So all the people who bought cheap and nasty Kings gear are funding Shauno and Grahams adventures and putting Australian manufacturing out of business.

  • The old saying of “you get what you pay for” is still so true. I just laugh at these tight arse accessory buyers who spend 100k+ on a vehicle and then kit it out with cheap and nasty accessories like KINGS, it use to be Tigers 11, it doesn’t matter its still lipstick on a Pig. Quality over Quantity pays off in the long run.

  • It’s not surprising, there stuff has always been cheap and nasty and now it’s dangerous too!

    Whilst they were at it the ACCC should also have investigated their business practices, full of false and misleading advertising – bait marketing
