2017 FREIGHTLINER COLUMBIA Recall

Item Affected: SERVICE BRAKES, AIR:DISC:CALIPER

Date Announced: 04/12/2016

Description of Recall: Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2010-2017 Freightliner M2 Business Class, 108SD, 114SD, and Columbia trucks manufactured from January 6, 2010, through February 29, 2016, equipped with certain Bendix rear disk brakes and spring suspensions. The rear disk brake caliper may have been installed incorrectly, thus allowing the caliper to contact the suspension.

Conequence: Caliper contact with the spring suspension may reduce the braking effectiveness, increasing the risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will correct the orientation of the rear brake calipers, as necessary, free of charge. The recall began on June 8, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's recall number for this campaign is FL-705.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.


2017 FREIGHTLINER CORONADO Recall

Item Affected: POWER TRAIN:AXLE HUBS

Date Announced: 08/31/2016

Description of Recall: Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2017 Freightliner M2 Business Class, 108 SD, 114 SD, Cascadia, Coronado, Western Star 4700, 4800, and 5700 XE trucks manufactured March 15, 2013, to July 29, 2016 and equipped with Conmet aluminum non-high capacity hubs. These vehicles specify a front axle weight limit that may be greater than that of the hub capacity. As a result, the hub may fail and the wheel may separate from the axle.

Conequence: If a wheel separates from the axle, there would be an increased risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front axle hubs, free of charge. The recall began during November 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-718.

The affected trucks have been modified to be equipped with both left hand and right hand instrument clusters. Due to incompatibilities between the displays, the instrument clusters and/or turn signals may become unresponsive.

Conequence: Unresponsive instrument clusters and/or turn signals can increase the risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left instrument cluster with a cluster compatible with the right display, free of charge. The recall began on May 8, 2017. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL731.

The brake caliper mounting bolts on the affected vehicles may be incorrectly torqued, allowing the bolts to loosen and detach.

Conequence: If the brake caliper mounting bolts loosen or detach, braking ability may be reduced, increasing the risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake caliper mounting bolts for the proper torque and tighten them as necessary, free of charge. An interim notice was sent to owners on November 7, 2016. The final remedy is now available. A second notice was mailed to owners on January 26, 2017.

These ECM's may experience an internal electrical short that can cause a fuse to blow, resulting in an unexpected engine stall without the ability to restart the engine.

Conequence: An engine stall without the ability to restart the engine can increase the risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: Cummins will notify owners, and Cummins dealers will install a new ECM, and correct ECM calibrations, free of charge. The recall began on July 8, 2016.

2017 FREIGHTLINER CASCADIA Recall

Item Affected: POWER TRAIN:AXLE ASSEMBLY

Date Announced: 05/11/2017

Description of Recall: Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain 2017 Freightliner Cascadia and Western Star 5700 trucks built with NFD tandem rear axles. During the hardening process, the axle assembly output shaft may have been made brittle, possibly resulting in the output shaft fracturing while the vehicle is in use.

Conequence: If output shaft fractures while descending a grade, the compression braking will be ineffective. Additionally, large debris may land in the road. Both scenarios increase the risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify the owners, and Detroit Axle dealers will replace the output shaft, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 9, 2017. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-738.

2017 FREIGHTLINER CASCADIA Recall

Item Affected: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Date Announced: 09/13/2016

Description of Recall: Daimler Trucks North America, LLC. (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2013-2017 Freightliner Cascadia vehicles manufactured September 24, 2012, to May 27, 2015 and equipped with compressed natural gas (CNG) engines. The affected vehicles have a Power Distribution Module (PDM) that is mounted near the CNG fuel tank. Due to its location, the PDM may be sprayed with water and contaminants from the road, possibly causing the PDM to short circuit.

Conequence: If the PDM short circuits, there would be an increased risk of a fire, especially if the nearby CNG tank leaks.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will relocate the PDM, free of charge. An interim notice was mailed to owners on November 7, 2016. The recall began on March 3, 2017. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-721.

2017 FREIGHTLINER BUSINESS CLASS M2 Recall

Item Affected: ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: INSTRUMENT PANEL | SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC

Date Announced: 09/14/2016

Description of Recall: Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Freightliner Custom Chassis (FCCC) S2 chassis and Freightliner Business Class M2 trucks and non-school buses manufactured March 3, 2015, to September 8, 2016, equipped with ICU3s instrument clusters and hydraulic brakes. In the event of a brake malfunction, these clusters may illuminate the Brake System Malfunction telltale/indicator lamp with the word "PARK" instead of the word "BRAKE". As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 101, "Control and Displays," and number 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems."

Conequence: If "PARK" illuminates instead of the word "BRAKE," the driver will be unaware of a braking issue or malfunction, increasing the risk of a crash.

Action Need To Fix It: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the ICU3s instrument clusters with new clusters, free of charge. An interim notification letter was sent to owners on November 4, 2016. The remedy is now available. A second notice was mailed to owners on April 17, 2017. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-724.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.


2016 FREIGHTLINER SPRINTER 3500 Recall

Date Announced: 02/10/2017

Description of Recall: Daimler Vans USA, LLC (DVUSA) is recalling certain 2013-2016 Mercedes-Benz Sprinter 2500 and 3500 and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 and 3500 vans. These vehicles were manufactured without a reinforcement plate and protective bracket on the air bag control unit. As a result, the air bag control unit may not remain functional after the initial impact, possibly preventing additional air bags from deploying in response to a secondary impact.

Conequence: If additional air bags do not deploy as intended, the occupants are at an increased risk of injury.

Action Need To Fix It: DVUSA will notify owners, and dealers will install a reinforcement plate and protective bracket around the air bag control unit, free of charge. The recall began on May 26, 2017. Owners may contact DVUSA customer service at 1-877-762-8267.
