Recall report: Three truck OEMs call back equipment

Safety Recalls

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

  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019-2020 Mercedes Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. The multifunctional display in the instrument cluster may not be adjustable and appear too bright in certain lighting conditions. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Control and Displays." A display that is too bright can hinder the driver's vision, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,285 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2021 Forest River Rockwood and Flagstaff fifth wheels recreational vehicles. The pin box may be under-rated for the gross vehicle weight rating of the vehicle. The underrated pin-box may fail, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 211 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Mack Trucks is recalling certain 2018-2022 Anthem, Granite, and Pinnacle vehicles equipped with "camelback" rear suspension and electronic stability control. The vehicles may not stay in their lane at certain speeds. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 136, "Electronic Stability Control Systems on Heavy Vehicles." A vehicle that drifts out of its lane increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 566 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Navistar is recalling certain 2021 International LT, RH, MV, and HV vehicles equipped with Bendix pressure switches. A retainer was not properly seated in the SC-3 single check valve and may not provide source air isolation when pressure is applied. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 121, "Air Brake Systems." Unintended spring brake application may occur, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 845 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Navistar is recalling certain 2021 International LT and International RH vehicles. The spring inside the spring brake chamber may allow the pressure plate to shift and wear a hole through the diaphragm. A hole in the diaphragm may cause an air leak, causing the parking brake to engage and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 615 vehicles are affected by this recall.
