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

  • Autocar is recalling certain 2018-2021 Xpeditor vehicles. The turbocharger heat shield may fail and detach from the vehicle. A detached heat shield can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 577 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Autocar is recalling certain 2019-2021 Xpeditor and 2021 Legend vehicles equipped with a MRS 7 in., display. The display may restart during operation, resulting in the warning lights not being visible until the restart is completed. The display may restart during operation and the warning icons for the Seat Belt, Low Air, Check Engine, ABS, Park Brake Applied, Turn Signal Indicator, Fuel Level, Electrical Charge, Coolant Temperature and Oil Pressure will not be visible until restart has completed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Control and Displays." During a display restart, warning lights such as the seat belt, check engine, fuel level, and other important warnings may not display, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 870 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Spartan Fire is recalling certain 2019-2021 Gladiator and MetroStar vehicles. The steering gear mounting bolts may become loose and back out, resulting in difficulty steering. Difficulty steering, or the inability to steer in both directions, can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 73 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Volvo Trucks North America is recalling certain 2022 VNL vehicles equipped with Alcoa Mirror Polish Wheels, part number ULT 391, and wheel size 22.5 x 8.25. Under certain circumstances, these wheels may not be able to support the load, which can cause the wheels to bend or break while in use. Bent or broken wheels can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 22 vehicles are affected by this recall.
