safety recalls-min

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

  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2021 Freightliner Cascadia vehicles. The clutch flange may break due to the heat treating and stamping process. If flange failure occurs, loose parts may fall into the clutch pressure plate assembly, resulting in clutch disengagement, thereby increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,233 units are affected by this recall.
  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz Metris right-hand drive vehicles. The screwed fittings between the rigid steel brake lines routed through the underbody of the vehicle and the brake hoses in the area of the front and rear axles may not have been correctly installed. The connection between the brake line and the brake hose may leak, causing a sudden loss of brake fluids, impacting braking performance and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 562 units are affected by this recall.
  • Halcore Group is recalling certain 2020 Horton Emergency Vehicles Type I and III and ambulances equipped with Weldon i4G Vivtech Displays. The processor that runs the display may stop functioning without warning, causing items operated through the control panel to not function. If the control panel stops functioning, a delay in emergency services may occur, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 251 units are affected by this recall.
  • Paccar is recalling certain 2020-2021 Peterbilt 520 vehicles. The stability control brake relay may have the Spring Brake Modulating (SBM) Valve or the lift axle hose incorrectly connected. A stability control event meant to only actuate the ABS controlled wheel ends could actuate lift axle brakes or modulate park brake chambers and could possibly de-stabilize the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 15 units are affected by this recall.
