More than 4,000 Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks are included in a recall prompted by a potential mirror issue that was announced recently by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall from Paccar includes approximately 4,051 model year 2020 Peterbilt 520 and 579 and Kenworth T680, T880 and W990 tractors.

In the affected trucks, the mirror glass may detach from the mirror carrier plate due to a lack of adhesion. If the mirror glass detaches, it would cause reduced visibility for the driver, as well as a road hazard for other vehicles.

Paccar has notified owners of affected trucks, and dealers will inspect the upper mirror glass and mirror housing, replacing if necessary.

Kenworth owners can contact Paccar customer service at 1-425-828-5888 with recall number 19KWC, and Peterbilt owners can call 1-940-591-4220 with recall number 19PBC. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-340.
