Among the 115 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Logo - NavistarNavistar, Inc. (“Navistar”) has recalled an estimated 24,173 model year 2016-2020 International LT and 2017-2018 Prostar 73-inch sleeper cab models equipped with feature code 07BKP or 07BKR (exhaust system with horizontal after treatment device and horizontal tailpipe mounted on right side). In the affected vehicles, the rear exhaust hanger bracket may crack, which can cause the forward hanger bracket to also crack. If both brackets crack, the exhaust tail pipe may detach from the vehicle.

According to the NHTSA, if the exhaust tail pipe detaches from the vehicle while being driven, it can become a road hazard, increasing the risk of crash.

Navistar will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the rear exhaust hanger bracket and replace any forward bracket found cracked and any exhaust tailpipe found damaged, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on April 23, 2019. Owners may contact Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825. Navistar’s designation for this recall is 19501.
