NHTSA safety recalls for trucks, buses, and trailers


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

  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2009-2019 Vision transit buses, 2006-2021 Vision and 2007-2013 All American school buses. The floor-mounted parking brake may fail to hold the vehicle stationary on an incline when the vehicle is loaded to its maximum weight, due to an insufficient application force. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 105, “Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems.” A parking brake system that is set to an insufficient application force may result in an increased possibility of unintended vehicle movement, which increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 2,267 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Jayco is recalling certain 2020 Jay Flight SLX Travel Trailers manufactured in the Idaho facility. The propane supply hose connection to the refrigerator may be improperly tightened, possibly resulting in a propane leak. A propane leak can increase the risk of an explosion or fire. NHTSA says potentially 1,641 vehicles are affected by this recall.
  • Navistar is recalling certain 2019 International WorkStar and International HV vehicles equipped with Meritor MX-14-120 EVO steer axles. The axles may have insufficient lubrication, which may result in damage to the wheel end bearings. If the bearings are damaged, the wheel may separate and cause a sudden loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of crash. NHTSA says potentially 130 vehicles are affected by this recall.
