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

  • Autocar is recalling certain 2023-2024 ACX (Xpeditor) and DC (Legend) vehicles. The axle lock nut may be improperly secured, allowing the wheel end to separate. The wheel end separating from the vehicle increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says 1,374 units are potentially affected by the recall. 
  • Chrysler is recalling certain 2021-2024 Ram Promaster vehicles. The vehicles are missing a side door beam, and the tire placard contains incorrect seating capacity information. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) numbers 214, "Side Impact Protection" and 110, "Tire Selection and Rims." A missing side door beam may not provide adequate occupant protection in a crash, increasing the risk of injury. Incorrect seating capacity information can result in an improperly loaded vehicle, increasing the risk of injury in a crash. NHTSA says 266 units are potentially affected by the recall. 
  • Daimler Trucks North America is recalling certain 2023-2024 Freightliner Custom Chassis XCR and 2024 XBS, XCM chassis. The remote fuel filter hoses may become separated from the fittings, which can result in a fuel leak and a lack of fuel supply to the engine. A fuel leak in the presence of an ignition source increases the risk of a fire. Additionally, a lack of fuel can cause an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says 56 units are potentially affected by the recall. 
  • Forest River Bus is recalling certain 2013-2016 Starcraft Allstar MVP, 2016 and 2019 Allstar XL, 2016-2018 Allstar XL MVP, 2009-2010 and 2012-2018 Starcraft MFSAB/Prodigy, 2014-2016 Quest XL, 2013 and 2015-2018 Starcraft MPV/Prodigy, 2009-2010 Prodigy, 2009-2022 Quest, 2011 Quest XL school buses. The restraining barrier may not provide sufficient protection in a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of FMVSS number 222, "School Bus Passenger Seating and Crash Protection." An insufficient restraining barrier can increase the risk of injury in a crash. NHTSA says 3,192 units are potentially affected by the recall. 
  • Nova Bus is recalling certain 2022-2023 LFS buses. The ground connection on the bus bar in the HVAC roof unit may not be secured properly, which can result in an unexpected engine shutdown or an overheated ground connection. An unexpected engine shutdown increases the risk of a crash. An overheated ground connection can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says 45 units are potentially affected by the recall. 
  • Terex South Dakota is recalling certain 2022-2023 TM vehicles. The master leveling controller may lose the ability to level the platform if power is lost while squeezing the enable trigger. A platform that cannot maintain a level position increases the risk of injury. NHTSA says 121 units are potentially affected by the recall. 
  • Wabash National Corporation is recalling certain 2024-2025 RFCVHSC refrigerated van trailers. The base rails may not be bonded properly and can detach, reducing the structural strength of the trailer. Base rails that detach can cause cargo to shift or fall, resulting in a loss of trailer control and increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says 521 units are potentially affected by the recall.
