The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2019-2021 Freightliner 108SD, 114SD, 122SD, Columbia, Coronado, Business Class M2, and 2020 Freightliner Cascadia vehicles. The drag link taper joint may not have been tightened sufficiently and could come loose, resulting in a complete separation of the drag link from the steering arm. Drag link separation can cause a complete loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 60,604 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2019-2020 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter VS30 and Freightliner Sprinter VS30 vehicles. The heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) blower motor circuit may be inadequate, which can allow the wiring harness to overheat. A wiring harness that overheats increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 52,993 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Vans USA is recalling certain 2022 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter vehicles equipped with electrically adjustable front swivel-seats. The wiring harnesses for the swivel-seats may have been incorrectly installed and may become damaged, which can cause the front side air bags not to deploy as intended. An air bag that does not deploy as intended increases the risk of injury in a crash. NHTSA says potentially 350 units are affected by the recall.
- Jayco is recalling certain 2022-2023 Entegra Accolade, Accolade XL, Anthem, Aspire, Cornerstone, Emblem, Esteem, Expanse, Expanse LI, Odyssey, Qwest, Reatta, Reatta XL, Jayco Alante, Greyhawk, Greyhawk Prestige, Melbourne, Melbourne Prestige, Precept, Precept Prestige, Redhawk, Redhawk SE, Seneca, Seneca Prestige, and Seneca XT recreational vehicles. The certification labels may be missing the rear Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR). As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification." Missing axle information may result in the vehicle being overloaded, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,467 units are affected by the recall.
- Prevost Car is recalling certain 2018-2023 H3-45 motor coaches and H3-45 VIP motorhomes. The Automatic Fire Suppression System (AFSS) optical fire sensor positioned in the engine compartment's lower region may corrode and malfunction. In this event, the AFSS may give a false warning to the driver, command an unwarranted engine shutdown, and release a chemical fire extinguishing agent in the engine compartment. The activation of the Automatic Fire Suppression System can cause a sudden loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash. Additionally, a disabled coach may require an evacuation procedure in an uncontrolled traffic situation, increasing the risk of injury to passengers. NHTSA says potentially 555 units are affected by the recall.
- Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2015-2023 Palazzo recreational vehicles. The front lower cap brackets that support the front fiberglass panel may become loose and detach from the vehicle while in motion. A detached bracket can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,969 units are affected by the recall.
- Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain 2018-2021 Hurricane and Windsport recreational vehicles. The driver and front passenger overhead cabinets may detach. Overhead cabinets that detach while the vehicle is in motion can fall onto seat occupants, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 1,836 units are affected by the recall.
- Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling certain 2021-2022 Cahaba recreational vehicles. The rear Sumo Springs may be the wrong size and the front Sumo Springs may have been installed in an incorrect location. The incorrectly-sized rear springs may buckle from over-compression. Incorrectly installed front springs may potentially cause damage to the front axle. Either of these scenarios can increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 243 units are affected by the recall.
