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

  • Autocar is recalling certain 2019-2022 Xpeditor vehicles. The hazard lights will not function with the ignition turned off. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” Disabled hazard lighting can increase the risk of a crash or injury in a hazard situation. NHTSA says potentially 947 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Chrysler is recalling certain 2019-2020 Ram 2500, 3500 pickup trucks, and Ram 3500, 4500, and 5500 cab chassis vehicles equipped with Cummins 6.7L Turbo Diesel engines. The High Pressure Fuel Pump (HPFP) may fail, resulting in a sudden engine stall without warning. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 222,410 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2017-2019 Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700, and 6900 trucks. The affected trucks have a power stud that passes through the bulkhead. In certain circumstances, the power stud may contact the bulkhead and result in an electrical arc. An electrical arc can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 7,128 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • DTNA is recalling certain 2021-2022 Western Star 49X vehicles. The steering shaft may not have been properly installed, causing it to separate from the steering gear. Steering shaft separation can result in a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 479 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling certain 2018-2021 Isuzu FTR and 2018-2021 Chevrolet 6500XD vehicles. A bolt on the left front steering knuckle may come loose, resulting in an increased turning radius and difficulty steering to the left. An unexpected change in turning radius and difficulty steering can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5,700 vehicles are affected by the recall.
  • Supreme Corporation is recalling certain 2019-2020 Wabash National Supreme Dry Freight Body vehicles equipped with certain Maxon GPTLR and GPTWR liftgates. A license plate light may have been installed that aims rearward and not towards the license plate. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with FMVSS number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." A license plate light aimed toward other drivers may increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 20 vehicles are affected by the recall.
