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

  • Paccar is recalling certain 2022 Peterbilt 579 vehicles equipped with chassis fairings. The bolts that hold the chassis fairing step assembly in the closed position may loosen and fracture the latch attachment, causing the fairing assembly to flex. A partially unsecured cab step can unexpectedly move while entering or exiting the cab, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 3,511 units are affected by the recall.
  • Pierce Manufacturing is recalling certain 2015-2021 Arrow XT, Enforcer, Quantum and Velocity fire 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 a fire. NHTSA says potentially 243 units are affected by the recall.
  • Trails West Manufacturing of Idaho is recalling certain 2017-2021 Sierra, Classic, Santa Fe, and Freeride trailers 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 506 units are affected by the recall.
