safety recalls-min

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

  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling 2019-2020 Mercedes Benz and Freightliner Sprinters. The fuel line clamps may loosen and result in a fuel leak. A fuel leak can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 4,010 units are affected by this recall.
  • Stoughton Trailers is recalling certain 2016-2019 DVW trailers with a specific rear pintle hook mounting assembly and rear suspension hangers welded to a channel suspension sub-frame. The sub-frame may crack around the area where the hangers are welded. The rear suspension hangers can break away from the sub-frame and become detached from the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,484 units are affected by this recall.
  • Navistar is recalling certain 2021 International MV and HV vehicles equipped with feature code 10EWW, 10EYD, 10HYR or 10JPJ (fifth wheel, stationary), 10HJA (fifth wheel, air slide) or 10WDN (fifth wheel mounting angles). The vehicles may not have had sections of reflective tape applied to the right and left upper contours of the cab. Without the reflective strips, a truck operating without a trailer at night may be less visible, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 14 units are affected by this recall.
  • Volvo Bus Corporation is recalling certain 2020 9700 buses. The driver may be able to start the bus even if the starter disabling switch in the engine compartment has been activated, such as during servicing. An engine that can be started while being worked on increases the risk of injury to the service technician. NHTSA says potentially 10 units are affected by this recall.
