The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Paccar Incorporated is recalling certain 2016-2021 Kenworth T680 trucks equipped with a 2.1m Cab and WABCO 6S/6M ABS brake system with drum brakes. The brake systems were manufactured with a standard rear-brake ABS modulator valve instead of a quick release valve, which may exceed the intended service-brake release timing. Longer than expected service-brake release timing may lengthen vehicle stopping distance, increasing the risk off a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,416 units are affected by this recall.
- Chrysler (FCA US LLC) is recalling certain 2019 Jeep Wrangler and Ram 2500, 2019-2020 Ram 1500 and 2020 Jeep Gladiator vehicles. The front seat belt retractors may not lock as intended during a crash. In the event of a crash, if the front seat belts fail to lock, there is an increased risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 2,114 units are affected by this recall.
- Shyft Group is recalling certain 2015-2019 Utilimaster Ram ProMaster fleet vehicles. The transmission shifter cable may separate and disconnect from the transmission, causing the vehicle to not perform shifts intended by the driver and the gear shift lever position not matching the actual transmission gear. The driver may be unaware of the actual position and unintended vehicle movement can occur, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5 units are affected by this recall.
