The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2024 Thomas Built Buses SAF-T-Liner C2 school buses. The electrical cables for the air conditioning (AC) may not be installed properly, which can allow the electrical connection to overheat. An overheated electrical connection increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 671 units are affected by the recall.
- Ford Motor Company is recalling certain 2024-2025 Ford E-350, F-650, and F-750 vehicles. The park pawl may not fully engage the park gear due to a casting defect in the transmission. A vehicle which does not have the park pawl fully engaged may result in a vehicle rollaway, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 5,795 units are affected by the recall.
- Paccar is recalling certain 2023-2024 Kenworth T280, T380, T480, Peterbilt 536, 537, and 548 trucks. The remote Stage 2 fuel filter hoses may have been damaged during production, allowing the hoses to leak or disconnect. A disconnected hose will result in an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash. Also, a fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 871 units are affected by the recall.
- Paccar is recalling certain 2023 Kenworth K270, K370, and Peterbilt 220 trucks. The driveshafts can break under certain loading conditions. A broken driveshaft can separate and cause a loss of drive power, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 21 units are affected by the recall.
- Spartan Fire is recalling certain 2021-2024 Gladiator, Metro Star, 2022-2024 FC-94, 2022-2023 KME Panther, and 2023 KME Predator emergency vehicles. A defect in the inversion valve may delay park brake engagement, which could allow the vehicle to move unintentionally. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems." Unintentional vehicle movement can increase the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 659 units are affected by the recall.
