The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA):
- Battle Motors is recalling certain 2023-2024 Let2 trucks. The drag link connecting the steering gear to the roadside steering knuckle may become deformed or break. A broken drag link can cause a complete loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 1,327 units are affected by the recall.
- Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2023-2024 Western Star 4900 and 2023 Western Star 6900 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 149 units are affected by the recall.
- Forest River is recalling certain 2020 Cherokee travel trailers. The draw bar locking mechanism may break, which can cause the front end of the trailer to contact the road. A trailer that contacts the road during transit increases the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 302 units are affected by the recall.
- Mickey Truck Bodies is recalling certain 2020-2023 Isuzu NRR vehicles. The 12-Volt wire harness on the truck refrigeration unit (TRU) may be exposed and missing heat shrink, which can cause electrical arcing. Electrical arcing can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 37 units are affected by the recall.
- Pierce Manufacturing (Pierce) is recalling certain 2020-2023 Freightliner and International Chassis vehicles equipped with Weldon 8X16 Input-Output nodes. In the event of a short circuit or wiring failure, the firmware in the node may fail to shut off the output pin, resulting in overloaded electrical circuits. Overloaded electrical circuits can overheat, increasing the risk of fire. NHTSA says potentially 248 units are affected by the recall.
- Terex Advance Mixer is recalling certain 2023-2024 Commander, Charger, and 2023 MM300 concrete mixer trucks. The bolts connecting the drum to the drum drive plate may loosen, resulting in the drum separating from vehicle. A detached drum can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash or injury. NHTSA says potentially 128 units are affected by the recall.
