NHTSA commercial vehicle recalls for the week of April 17, 2023.

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

  • Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain 2022 FCCC MT45G, S2C 106, 2022-2023 FCCC MT50E, MT55, S2RV Chassis, 2023 Freightliner 108 SD, 114 SD, Cascadia, M2 106, FCCC XCM Chassis, XCR Chassis, XCS Chassis, Thomas Built Bus SAF-T-LINER C2, and Western Star 4700, 47X, 4900, 49X commercial buses. The tie rod may be missing a fastener, allowing the steer arm to detach. A detached steering arm can result in a sudden loss of steering control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 306 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River is recalling certain 2021 Forester 2401BSD, FR3 F3A32DSF, Georgetown GTA36K7, 2022-2023 East to West Entrada, 2023 East to West Alta, Coachmen Apex, Brookstone, Chaparral and Chaparral Lite, Forest River Crusader, Sanibel, Shasta Phoenix, Coachmen Spirit, and East to West Tandara vehicles. The solar panel mounting hardware may become loose and pull through the slot in the panel. Loose hardware can cause the solar panels to detach from the vehicle during transit, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,616 units are affected by the recall.
  • Forest River Bus is recalling certain 2019-2022 Starcraft Prodigy school buses. The interior panels on the ceiling may be improperly secured. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 221, “School bus body joint strength.” Improperly secured ceiling panels may not adequately protect the passengers in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 29 units are affected by the recall.
  • Motor Coach Industries is recalling certain 2019-2021 D45CRTLE, J3500, and J4500 coaches, equipped with a rear-mounted bike rack. The vehicle’s rear lighting may be obstructed when bikes are installed on the bike rack. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” Obstructed rear lighting may reduce the visibility of the vehicle to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 140 units are affected by the recall.
  • Navistar is recalling certain 2016-2020 International DuraStar, WorkStar, 2017-2018 International TranStar, 2018 International ProStar, 2020 International HV, MV, and 2018 IC Bus HC Commercial buses. The heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) blower motor circuit may have an insufficient wiring terminal that can overheat. An overheated electrical circuit can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 44,887 units are affected by the recall.
  • Nikola Corporation is recalling certain 2022-2024 TRE BEV trucks. The electronic parking brake valve module (PVM) may fail to move into the park position when the parking brake is activated. A parking brake that is not engaged as expected when the driver releases the brakes may allow the vehicle to rollaway, increasing the risk of crash. NHTSA says potentially 364 units are affected by the recall.
  • Volvo Trucks North America is recalling certain 2020-2023 VNR Electric vehicles equipped with Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC). When the adaptive cruise control braking activates under light load conditions, it can trigger an aggressive braking response. Overly aggressive braking can result in the rear axle skidding, the brakes locking up, and/or a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 236 units are affected by the recall.
  • Winnebago Industries is recalling certain 2021-2023 Ekko motorhomes. The 12-Volt charging system may have improperly routed wires and loose electrical connections, which can overload the electrical circuits and cause damage to electrical components, including the auxiliary alternator. Overloaded electrical circuits that damage components increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,180 units are affected by the recall.
