The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Alexis Fire Equipment Company is recalling certain 2021-2023 Spartan Metro Star, FC-94 fire trucks. The tie rod clamps may have been improperly heat-treated, causing them to fail and allowing the tie rods to separate. Tie rod separation can result in a sudden loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 20 units are affected by the recall.
- Entegra Coach is recalling certain 2015-2019 Aspire and Insignia motorhomes. The service and supply reservoirs have an insufficient volume of air for the brake system. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems." The undersized air brake supply reservoir may provide an insufficient air supply to properly operate the brakes during repetitive braking, reducing braking performance and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 392 units are affected by the recall.
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2017-2018 F-Super Duty F-250, F-350, and F-450 4x4 vehicles. A radial damper inside the driveshaft may move out of position over time, which can cause a driveshaft imbalance and result in a fracture. A fractured driveshaft can cause a loss of drive power. Additionally, a vehicle rollaway could occur while parked if the parking brake is not engaged. Either of these scenarios increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 18,808 units are affected by the recall.
- Hino Motors Sales USA is recalling certain 2022-2023 NE7A, NJ7A, NJ7B, and NV7A vehicles equipped with a 50-gallon fuel tank. The fuel pickup tube may contact the bottom of the tank, restricting the uptake of fuel to the engine. Restricted fuel update can cause an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 970 units are affected by the recall.
- Newmar Corporation is recalling certain 2022-2023 Supreme Aire motorhomes. The cap screws under the steering wheel cover could loosen and cause the steering wheel to separate from the steering column. Separation of the steering wheel could result in the inability to steer, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 18,808 units are affected by the recall.
- Xos Inc., is recalling certain 2021 RM01, SA01 and 2021-2022 SV05 vehicles. The brake lines may be the incorrect length and incorrectly routed, which can result in a brake fluid leak. A brake fluid leak can lead to an increase in stopping distance, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 18,808 units are affected by the recall.
