An issue that could cause exhaust pipes to detach from certain trucks has prompted Navistar to issue a recall of more than 24,000 International tractors, according to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Daimler Trucks North America is also recalling a small number of Freightliner Cascadia tractors for two separate issues.
Navistar’s recall affects approximately 24,173 model year 2016-2020 International LT and model year 2017-2018 International ProStar 73-inch sleeper cab models equipped with exhaust systems with horizontal aftertreatment device and horizontal tailpipe mounted on the right side (feature codes 07BKP or 07BKR).
In the affected trucks, the rear exhaust hanger bracket may crack, causing the forward hanger bracket to also crack. If both brackets crack, the exhaust pipe could detach from the trucks.
Navistar will notify owners of affected trucks, and dealers will replace the rear exhaust hanger bracket, any front hanger bracket found damaged and any damaged exhaust pipes for free. Owners can contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 with recall number 19501. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-122.
DTNA announced it is recalling approximately 43 model year 2020 Freightliner Cascadia tractors equipped with an ICU3S instrument cluster and a DT12 automated manual transmission. In these particular trucks, when the transmission is shifted out of neutral, the instrument cluster will continue to display the “N” position.
Daimler will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the powertrain controller so the correct gear selection displays in the instrument cluster for free. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-808. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-137.
DTNA also issued a separate recall affecting just 14 model year 2018-2019 Cascadia tractors in which the anti-lock braking system malfunction warning light may not reactivate after the ignition has been turned off and back on – a violation of federal vehicle safety regulations.
The company will notify owners, and dealers will reprogram the ABS module for free. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-810. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-136.
