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

  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2022 Freightliner Custom Chass MT45 Chassis. The leaf spring eye on the rear suspension may be undersized, which could result in it breaking and detaching from the vehicle. A detached leaf spring eye can create a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 79 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2020-2021 F-350 Super Duty pickup trucks equipped with 6.7L diesel engines and Dana model 275 rear axles. The rear axle housing may not support the load of the pickup truck and deform, which could result in driveshaft separation. Driveshaft separation may result in a loss of drive power, or unintended vehicle movement if the vehicle is in park without the parking brake applied, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 27,604 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2021 F-150 vehicles. The electronic brake booster may leak brake fluid into the electronic control unit, which could result in reduced braking performance. Reduced braking performance can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 51 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Marion Body Works is recalling certain 2017-2020 Spartan Gladiator and MetroStar vehicles. The sealing washer may not seat correctly in the pilot boreholes, allowing the high-pressure fuel rail assembly to leak. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 52 vehicles are affected by the recall.
