The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Navistar Inc. is recalling certain 2014 IC Bus CE, 2019 IC Bus CE and 2022 IC Bus CE school buses. These buses are not equipped with enough emergency exits. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 217, “Bus Emergency Exits and Window Retention and Release.” A lack of emergency exits can delay passengers from exiting the vehicle during an emergency, increasing their risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 33 vehicles are affected by the recall.
- General Motors LLC is recalling certain 2021 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL vehicles. A software issue may cause a loss of power steering assist at startup or while driving. Increased steering effort, particularly at lower speeds, increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 26,847 vehicles are affected by the recall.
- Shyft Group is recalling certain 2021 Utilimaster Velocity vehicles. The Tire and Loading Information placard incorrectly states a seating capacity of one, although the actual seating capacity is two. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number (FMVSS 110, “Tire Selection and Rims.” Incorrect seating capacity information may cause the vehicle to be overloaded, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 80 vehicles are affected by the recall.
