  • Navistar is recalling certain 2018-2019 International WorkStar, International DuraStar, 2019-2021 International HV, International MV, and IC Bus RE Commercial Bus vehicles.

  • Paccar Incorporated is recalling certain 2021 Peterbilt 348 and 579 vehicles. The spring brake chamber may have been assembled with incorrect springs that were out of specification, which may cause the pressure plate to shift. The pressure plate may tear the diaphragm, causing a loss of air pressure and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 13 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Spartan Fire is recalling certain 2009-2021 Gladiator and MetroStar emergency vehicles. The fire water pump solenoid may corrode internally, causing a loss of power to the pump control module. A loss of power to the pump control module can cause a loss of water pressure for fighting fires, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 2,130 vehicles are affected by this recall.
