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

  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2023 Western Star 4900 trucks. The inversion valve air lines may have been incorrectly installed, potentially reducing brake performance. Reduced brake performance increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 13 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2021 F-150 vehicles. The Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) for low transmission fluid pressure may falsely activate and cause the transmission to unexpectedly shift into neutral. An unexpected shift into neutral will cause a loss of drive power and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 47,084 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2016 and 2020 Transit Connect vehicles. The front windshield may have been manufactured with inadequate adhesion to the vehicle body structure. During a crash, the windshield may detach from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 39,720 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2022 Transit vehicles. The image processing module for the 360-degree camera system may not process the image from the rearview camera under certain rear loading vehicle conditions. Loss of the rearview camera image while reversing can reduce the driver's view of what is behind the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 305 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2022 Transit vehicles. The rearview camera supplied in the Rear Video Camera and Prep Kit will not function when installed by the final stage manufacturer (upfitter), resulting in a blank rearview image. A camera that does not display a rearview image while reversing can reduce the driver's view of what is behind the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 119 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2022 Alpine, Impact, Arcadia, Avalanche, Fuzion, and Passport travel trailers, equipped with a 50-amp shore power inlet. The power inlet lug bolts may have been manufactured with excessively hard metal, preventing them from being tightened properly and resulting in a loose wiring connection. Loose wiring can cause an electrical arc or short, increasing the risk of fire. NHTSA says potentially 569 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2022 Passport travel trailers. The trailers were built with the incorrect size axles and tires, which could cause the vehicle to become overloaded. An overloaded vehicle increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 35 units are affected by the recall. 
  • Mack Trucks is recalling certain 2023 LR Battery Electric trucks. During certain driving maneuvers, the power steering system may lose pressure, causing a loss of power steering assist. Loss of power steering assist increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 33 units are affected by the recall.
