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

  • Daimler Coaches North America is recalling certain 2009-2020 Setra S417 and 2012-2019 Setra S407 vehicles. The hinge on the engine compartment flap may crack, which could result in the flap detaching from the vehicle. A detached engine compartment flap can become a road hazard, and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 530 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • General Motors is recalling certain 2015-2016 GMC Sierra 1500, 2500, 3500, and Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2500, and 3500 trucks. The roof-rail air bag (RRAB) inflator end cap may detach from the inflator, or the inflator sidewall may rupture. A separated inflator end cap or inflator rupture can allow compressed gas to escape, resulting in the end cap or other components being propelled into the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury or crash. NHTSA says potentially 410,019 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • General Motors is recalling certain 2017-2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500 and 2017-2019 GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 vehicles equipped with a Duramax diesel 6.6 liter engine and an optional engine-block heater cord. An electrical short-circuit may occur in the engine-block heater cable or in the terminals that connect the heater cable to the block heater. An electrical short-circuit can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 331,274 vehicles are affected by the recall.
