Two manufacturers have issued recalls for some of their trucks.
Volvo Trucks North America is recalling about 412 model year 2022-’23 Volvo VNL tractors for an issue that could cause the air tank to detach, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.
According to Volvo, the air tank bracket fasteners were excessively tightened and may have broken, which could allow the air tank to detach, becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the fasteners, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Dec. 21. Owners can contact Volvo Trucks’ customer service at 1-800-528-6586 with recall number RVXX2205. NHTSA’s recall number is 22V-896.
Also, Daimler Trucks North America is recalling about 49 model year 2020-2023 Freightliner 114SD, 2023 Freightliner 122SD, 2020 Western Star 4700, 2019-2022 Western Star 4900, 2019-2023 Freightliner Business Class M2, and 2021 Freightliner Cascadia trucks equipped with tires that are not compatible with their 8.25-inch rims.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 120, “Wheels and Rims-Other Than Passenger Cars.”
Driving with tires that are not compatible with their rims can reduce tire performance, increasing the risk of a crash, Daimler said.
Dealers will replace the tires, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed Feb. 12. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-962. NHTSA’s recall number is 22V-919.
