The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Volvo Trucks North America (Volvo Trucks) is recalling certain 2020-2021 VAH, VHD, VNL and VNR vehicles. The die cast pedal plate may break at one of its attachment points, possibly resulting in the brake pedal dislodging. A dislodged brake pedal would be inoperable, increasing a risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 15,156 units are affected by this recall.
- Volvo Trucks is recalling certain 2021 VNL, VHD and VNR vehicles. The kingpin nut may not have been installed or properly tightened during axle assembly. If the kingpin is missing or not tightened properly, the knuckle might separate from the axle, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 12 units are affected by this recall.
- Daimler Truckers North America LLC is recalling certain 2020-2021 Freightliner 114SD, 122SD and Western Star 4700 and 4900 vehicles equipped with certain SL2065 steerable lift axles. The lower rear pivot cap screws may not be long enough to sufficiently engage the locking feature of the corresponding nuts. If the screws are not long enough to engage the corresponding nuts, the hardware might separate from the suspension systems, becoming a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash and/or injury. NHTSA says potentially 70 units are affected by this recall.
- Wabash National Corporation is recalling certain 2019-2021 van trailers manufactured with flat bottom floors that are equipped with aerodynamic skirts. The aerodynamic skirts attached to the van trailers may come loose. If the aerodynamic skirt detaches while the trailer is moving, it might increase the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 218 units are affected by this recall.
