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

  • Autocar is recalling certain 2020-2021 Xpeditor and Legend vehicles. The transverse torque rod mounting bolts may not be properly tightened. If the transverse torque rod mounting bolts are not properly tightened, the bolts may fail and become disconnected from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash, personal injury or property damage. NHTSA says potentially 1,060 units are affected by this recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2019-2021 Freightliner EconicSD vehicles. The routing and securement of certain electrical power cables at the battery relay and ground cable may cause the components to be damaged. A damaged power cable wire coming into contact with the ground cable at the battery relay may increase the risk of a fire from overloading the ground connection. Additionally, a damaged ground connection may also result in an unexpected engine stall without warning and inability to restart, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 104 units are affected by this recall.
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2021 F-650 and F-750 vehicles equipped with 7.3L gas engines. The transmission oil cooler line may contact the air conditioning compressor pulley, possibly causing a transmission fluid leak. Leaking transmission fluid may contact hot engine components, increasing the risk of an engine compartment fire. NHTSA says potentially 225 units are affected by this recall.
