Daimler Trucks North America is recalling more than 3,000 Freightliner Cascadia tractors over a potential issue with an optional steering wheel air bag, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

The recall affects approximately 3,365 model year 2018-2020 Cascadia trucks equipped with the optional air bag. In these trucks, the air bag could deploy unexpectedly.

DTNA says it will notify owners, and dealers will remove the air bag as an interim remedy, for free, while the company develops a remedy program.

Owners of affected trucks can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL806. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-066. NHTSA adds that this recall supersedes a recall issued in November over faulty air bags.
