The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Daimler Trucks North America LLC is recalling certain 2022 Thomas Built Buses Saf-T-Liner HDX school buses. The fan drive pulley assembly bolts may be incorrect or improperly installed. Incorrect or improperly installed bolts may lead to a loose fan belt, resulting in a disabled bus. A disabled school bus may require an evacuation procedure in an uncontrolled traffic situation, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 50 vehicles are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Trucks North America LLC is recalling certain 2022 Freightliner Cascadia vehicles. The exhaust pipe outlet may have been improperly installed with the tip facing towards the battery box mounted directly above the frame rail. The exhaust heat may melt the battery box, increasing the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 460 vehicles are affected by the recall.
- Gillig LLC is recalling certain 2020-2021 Low Floor Battery Electric vehicles equipped with Cummins Electric Drivetrain Systems. When a system shutdown occurs, the high voltage shutdown override switch may not function, with no warning to the driver. NHTSA says potentially 134 vehicles are affected by the recall. An unexpected vehicle shutdown without the ability to override it can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 15 vehicles are affected by the recall.
- Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2019-2021 Dutchmen Aspen Trail, Coleman, Keystone Cougar, Bullet, Passport, Hideout, Springdale, Sprinter, 2019 Keystone Impact, Fuzion, Residence, Retreat, Summerland, and Dutchmen Kodiak recreational vehicles, equipped with Winntec model 6020 two-stage propane regulators. The regulator may fail, causing an increase in propane pressure. Increased propane pressure can enlarge the flames in gas appliances, increasing the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 95,753 vehicles are affected by the recall.
- Volvo Bus Corporation (Volvo Bus) is recalling certain 2008-2021 9700 vehicles. The headlights may not have the correct amount of light output, and either be too bright or too dim. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." Excessively bright or dim headlights may reduce visibility, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 860 vehicles are affected by the recall.
