Dear Mr. Bearden:

This responds to your letter of April 1, 1996, requesting confirmation that a vehicle certified as a "passenger car" would not be subject to the labeling requirements of 49 CFR 575.105.

You are correct. Section 575.105(b) states that the requirements apply only to "multipurpose passenger vehicles."

I hope this information has been helpful. If you have other questions or need some additional information, please contact Mary Versailles of my staff at this address or by phone at (202) 366-2992.


Samuel J. Dubbin Chief Counsel
