The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2017-2022 F-250 and F-350 Super Duty vehicles equipped with gasoline engines and aluminum driveshafts. Underbody heat and noise insulators may loosen and contact the aluminum driveshaft, which could damage the driveshaft and cause it to fracture. A fractured driveshaft can cause a loss of drive power, or a loss of vehicle control if the driveshaft contacts the ground. Additionally, unintended movement could occur while parked if the parking brake is not engaged. Any of these scenarios can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 247,445 units are affected by the recall.
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2021-2022 E-350 and E-450 vehicles equipped with dual rear wheels. An inadequate connection between the power steering pressure line and the brake Hydroboost unit may result in a sudden loss of power steering fluid. A sudden loss of power steering fluid can result in a loss of power steering and power brake assist, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 44,219 units are affected by the recall.
- Navistar is recalling certain 2019 International LT and International RH vehicles. The LED backup lights are the incorrect color white. As such, these lights fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." Incorrect color backup lights may decrease vehicle visibility to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 4,277 units are affected by the recall.
- Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2020-2021 Omni and Magnitude motorhomes. The LP gas line may have been incorrectly routed through the rear suspension leaf springs, which could damage the line and cause a gas leak. A gas leak increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 731 units are affected by the recall.
