The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Autocar is recalling certain 2019-2022 Xpeditor and 2020-2022 Legend vehicles. The fuel tubes between the fuel rail and the injectors for cylinders four, five, and six may fatigue and crack, which can result in a high pressure fuel leak. A high pressure fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,001 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2021-2022 Western Star 4900 vehicles. The steering shaft pinch bolt may not have been properly tightened, allowing the steering shaft to separate from the steering gear. Steering shaft separation may cause a loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 21 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. The front axle fender liner and brake hose may be too close, allowing the fender liner to contact and damage the brake hose. A damaged brake hose may leak brake fluid, extending the distance needed to stop the vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 98 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vehicles. The spring-loaded rear step bolt fasteners were not properly tightened. Loose bolt fasteners may allow the rear step to separate from the vehicle, becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 98 units are affected by the recall.
- Great Dane Trailers is recalling certain 2022 Champion dry van and Everest refrigerated trailers. The wheel hubs may have an insufficient amount of lubrication, which could cause the hub bearings to fail. Hub bearing failure could cause the wheel hub assembly to detach, causing a loss of stability and control, creating a road hazard, and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 3,288 units are affected by the recall.
- Mack Trucks is recalling certain 2008-2019 TerraPro (MRU) and 2019-2022 TerraPro (TE) vehicles. A brake control valve air leak into the attached exhaust hose can create excessive back pressure, causing the parking brake to release unexpectedly. The unexpected release of the parking brake may allow the vehicle to rollaway, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 20,668 units are affected by the recall.
