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

  • Autocar is recalling certain 2020 Xpeditor vehicles up-fitted with an aftermarket power take off (PTO). The engine may stall or hesitate when operated from the right-side stand-up position with the PTO system engaged. A stall or hesitation can cause the vehicle to roll backwards, increasing the risk of a crash or personal injury. NHTSA says potentially 16 units are affected by the recall.

The tire valve stem extension for the inner wheel may come into contact with the outer wheel rim opening and become damaged. Damage to the valve stem extension may result in a loss of tire pressure of the inner wheel, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 18,808 units are affected by the recall.
