Additional information:

Among the 40 recalls the NHTSA has announced this December comes news of the following:

Daimler Trucks North America, LLC (“DTNA”) has recalled an estimated 436,095 model year 2008-2018 Freightliner Cascadia, Western Star 4700, 4900, 5700, and 6900 Trucks. After hard brake applications, the brake light pressure switch may not activate the brake lights with a light application of the brake pedal.

According to the NHTSA, if the brake lights fail to illuminate, there would not be a signal to other motorists that the vehicle is slowing, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do next? DTNA will notify registered owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 25, 2018. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA’s number for this recall is FL-756.
