The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):

  • Chrysler is recalling certain 2020 Ram Promaster vans and 1500 pickups. The affected vehicles may have an improperly crimped diffuser in the side curtain airbag which may result in the diffuser detaching from the inflator in the event of an air bag deployment. In the event of a crash, if the diffuser detaches from the inflator during air bag deployment, the air bag may not inflate properly, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 114 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2020-2021 Rockwood trailers, model RLT2205S-W. The Federal Placard indicates an incorrect Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). The incorrect Federal Placard may result in the operator unknowingly overloading the vehicle, causing loss of control, and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 74 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Vac-Tron Equipment is recalling certain 2020 CVGTLC, CVSGT, CVGT, LPSGT, LPXDT, MINICOMBO and LPSDT Vacuum Excavator trailers. The trailers may be missing rear and rear-side reflex reflectors. As such, these trailers fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” Without the proper reflective equipment, the vacuum excavator trailer may have reduced visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 108 vehicles are affected by this recall.
