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

  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2020 AA5X/AN5X, AA5X(E)/AN5X(E), AA6X/AN6X, AA6X(E)/AN6X(E), AN4X-OC/AN4X(E)-OC, AN5X-OC/AN5X(E)-OC, AA/AN67-E100, and AA/AN67(E)-E100 vehicles. The leveling sprocket may have a failed weld between the sprocket and hub assembly. Uncontrolled platform leveling increases the risk of injury and death. NHTSA says potentially 1,284 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Altec Industries is recalling certain 2020-2021 D2000, 3000, and 4000 Derrick diggers. A retaining ring in the gearbox assembly was improperly seated during production, allowing the boom to unintentionally rotate freely. Unintended boom movement increases the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 52 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Autocar is recalling certain 2022 Xpeditor vehicles equipped with Cummins L9 Diesel Engines that have remote Stage 2 fuel filters and pressurized hoses. A fuel leak may occur from the fuel hose between the fuel pump and the remote fuel filter head. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 107 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Corp. Micro Bird is recalling certain 2003-2015 MBII, 2015-2021 T-Series, and 2006-2022 G5 transit buses. The emergency release handle on the service door may bind, not allowing the door panels to open. The service door may not open, preventing evacuation of the vehicle in case of emergency, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 1,323 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2021-2022 Thomas Built C2 Saf-T-Liner school buses. The parking brake activation switch may fail to set the parking brake. Unintended movement of the vehicle increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 255 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • DTNA is recalling certain 2022 Freightliner XB Chassis and 2021-2022 Freightliner XC Chassis vehicles equipped with Cummins L9 Diesel Engines that have remote Stage 2 fuel filters and pressurized hoses. A fuel leak may occur from the fuel hose between the fuel pump and the remote fuel filter head. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 449 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Paccar is recalling certain 2022 Kenworth T680, T880, and W990 vehicles. The HVAC controls may have insufficient soldering between the potentiometer(s) and the PCBA board, resulting in windshield defrost failure. Inoperative windshield defrost may reduce driver visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,441 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Shyft Group is recalling certain 2021-2022 Spartan RV Chassis K2 vehicles equipped with Cummins L9 Diesel Engines that have remote Stage 2 fuel filters and pressurized hoses. A fuel leak may occur from the fuel hose between the fuel pump and the remote fuel filter head. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source may increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 309 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Trail King Industries is recalling certain 2018-2020 TKOLB332NG-HH, TKOLB336NG, TKOLB336NG-HH, TKOLB434NG-HH, and TKOLB436NG-HH vehicles equipped with Dexter Smart Steer axles. The steering arm may detach from the steering knuckle during certain low-speed, high-side loading maneuvers. A detached steering arm may cause a loss of steering control. In addition, attachment hardware may fall and become a road hazard. Both of these scenarios can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 56 vehicles are affected by the recall.
