Y/day I came to know that there is a safety recall on the all of the Mighty Joe (Car Trunk) racks. I believe it is for the 2005 model - both Joe 2 & Joe 3.

I had gone to my LBS for a price match. That's when he told me about the recall and advised me to return it imml'y, after showing me the document. Search on google for more info. did not provide any collateral on this.

Good luck
