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

  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2018 Freightliner Custom Chassis XBP, 2017-2020 XBR, 2017-2022 XBS, 2016-2019 XCL, 2016-2023 XCM, 2017-2021 XCP, 2016-2023 XCR, and 2017-2023 XCS recreational vehicle chassis. The rear mounted Power Distribution Module (PDM) may have internal damage, which could result in the rear marker lights, brake lights, or turn signals not functioning. Non-functioning brake lights, rear markers, or turn signals can reduce vehicle visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 25,734 units are affected by the recall.
  • Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019-2021 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter and Freightliner Sprinter vehicles. A software error in the park lock system may allow the vehicle to move after the gear selector has been placed in the Park 'P' position without the parking brake applied. Unintentional vehicle movement can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 48,400 units are affected by the recall.
  • General Motors is recalling certain 2019-2021 GMC Sierra 1500 and Silverado 1500 vehicles equipped with certain accessory road tires and a 17 in., spare tire. The 17 in., spare tire provided with the vehicle is not compatible for use with the accessory wheels, which can cause the anti-lock brake system (ABS) to not function properly under certain conditions. An ABS system that does not function properly can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 626 units are affected by the recall.
  • Terex Advance Mixer is recalling certain 2016-2022 Front Discharge Mixer trucks. 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 fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,016 units are affected by the recall.
