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

  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2022 Vision school buses equipped with cross-view mirrors and a Mobileye collision mitigation system. Due to the current placement of the Mobileye camera, the camera could partially or fully obstruct the driver's view of the passenger side cross-view mirror. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, "Rear Visibility." An obstructed view of the passenger side cross-view mirror increases the risk of injury for pedestrians. NHTSA says potentially 134 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Chrysler is recalling certain 2021 Ram ProMaster City and Ram ProMaster vehicles. The seat belt automatic locking retractors may deactivate early, which can prevent the child restraint system from securing properly. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 208, "Occupant Crash Protection." An unsecured child restraint system can increase the risk of injury during a crash. NHTSA says potentially 8,379 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2019 Freightliner Classic Cascadia and 2019-2021 Freightliner Cascadia trucks. The drag link taper joint may not have been tightened sufficiently and could come loose, resulting in a complete separation of the drag link from the steering arm.. Drag link separation can cause a complete loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 105,183 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Utility Trailer Manufacturing Company is recalling certain 2022 VS2RA trailers. The incorrect tape was installed on the top foil, which could result in the sealer plate separating from the roof. A separated sealer plate can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 260 vehicles are affected by the recall.
