The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2018-2021 Freightliner 114SD, 108SD, and Business Class M2 vehicles. The engine harness wires may chafe at various locations around the air compressor and the frame rail. The damaged wires may short causing the engine to stall without any prior warning. An engine stall can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 9,664 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- DTNA is recalling certain 2018-2019 Freightliner Custom Chass XCL, 2018-2021 Freightliner XCM chassis, XCS Chassis and MC Chassis and 2017-2021 XCR Chassis. The tire valve stem extension for the inner wheel may come in contact with the outer wheel rim opening and become damaged. Extensive damage to the valve stem extension may result in a loss of tire pressure of the inner wheel, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 10,359 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Fontaine Modification is recalling certain 2016-2020 Autohaulers built on Freightliner 114SD chassis. Movement of the cab during operation may cause the battery cable to contact the bottom of the cab, possibly damaging the cable. Damage to the cable can result in an electrical short, increasing the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,074 vehicles are affected by this recall.
- Shyft Group is recalling certain 2020 Fleet Vehicles-Utilimaster Metris vehicles. The payload capacity shown on the Tire and Loading Information label may be higher than the actual payload capacity of the vehicle. Overloading of the tires may increase the risk of tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5,096 vehicles are affected by this recall.
