Additional information:

Among the 63 recalls the NHTSA has announced this September comes news of the following:

PACCAR Incorporated (“PACCAR”) has recalled an estimated 2,977 model year 2009-2010 Peterbilt 210 and 220 Trucks; 2012-2018 Peterbilt 210, 220, 330 and 337 Trucks; and 2010-2018 Kenworth K270 and K370 Trucks. These LFNA Trucks have a front axle sway bar link that may come loose on the frame rail end and fall into the path of the drag link, possibly binding the steering system.

According to the NHTSA, if the sway bar link detaches and falls into the drag link, it may impact the ability of the vehicle to steer properly, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do next? PACCAR will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the upper sway bar link attachment for a hardened washer installed between the bushing and the nut, installing a washer if it is missing, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 30, 2017. Owners may contact Kenworth customer service at 1-425-828-5000 or Peterbilt customer service at 1-940-591-4220. PACCAR’s numbers for this recall are 817-D and 17KWE
