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

  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2022 Thomas Built Saf-T-Liner C2 school buses. The hydraulic caliper tie bar support fasteners on the steer axles may not have been properly tightened or the tie bar may have not been installed in some cases. A dangling tie bar could come in contact with the rotating wheel-end components or damage may occur from the brake parts flexing. Either scenario may increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 278 units are affected by this recall.
  • DTNA is recalling certain 2021 Freightliner Custom Chassis MC, Business Class M2, Custom Chassis MBC Chassis, Custom Chassis S2 Chassis, Custom Chassis MT55 Chassis, and 2022 Custom Chassis Saf-T-Liner C2 vehicles. The hydraulic caliper tie bar support fasteners on the steer axles may not have been properly tightened or the tie bar may have not been installed in some cases. A dangling tie bar could come in contact with the rotating wheel-end components or damage may occur from the brake parts flexing. Either scenario may increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 80 units are affected by this recall.
  • Navistar is recalling certain 2019-2021 International MV, 2020-2021 International HV, 2014-2020 International DuraStar and 2015-2018 International WorkStar vehicles. When the parking brake is applied and the automatic transmission is still in the drive or reverse position and the stationary PTO switch is engaged by the operator, the engine may rev and overcome the parking brake’s ability to keep the vehicle from moving. Unexpected Vehicle movement can increase the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 17,213 units are affected by this recall.
  • Volvo Bus Corporation is recalling certain 2015-2020 9700 buses. The transmission C1 hub may fail which may lead to a disabled vehicle. A disabled bus may require passengers to transfer to a different bus on the side of the road, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 468 units are affected by this recall.
