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

  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2017-2021 Cascadia P4 vehicles. The brake lights may remain illuminated after the brake pedal has been released. If the brake lights remain illuminated, drivers may be unaware when the truck is actually slowing or stopping, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 128,269 units are affected by this recall.
  • Ford Motor Company (Ford) is recalling certain 2019 F-250 and F-350, single rear wheel and dual rear wheel, 4×4 vehicles. The front axles may contain a wheel end yoke that was not properly welded to the axle tube end. An improperly welded axle may affect vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 9,628 units are affected by this recall.
  • Isuzu Technical Center of America (Isuzu) is recalling certain 2018-2021 FTR and Chevrolet 6500XD vehicles. The ground cable connecting the starter motor to the vehicle frame may break at the starter-side eyelet, resulting in an engine no-crank or slow-crank condition, causing the vehicle not to start. If the cable is broken and repeated attempts are made to start the vehicle, the starter may ground through the steel braiding of the power steering hose, allowing it to heat up and possibly rupture, increasing the risk of fire. NHTSA says potentially 4,352 units are affected by this recall.
  • Nova Bus is recalling certain 2020 Nova Bus LFS transit buses. Certain power steering pipes from the rear engine bay to the front gear box may separate at the connection joint. This may cause a power steering assist loss and power steering fluid may leak from the ceiling into the passenger compartment. The loss of power steering assist may increase the risk of a crash. A power steering fluid leak into the passenger cabin may increase the risk of a passenger injury. NHTSA says potentially 34 units are affected by this recall.
