Among the 52 recalls the NHTSA has announced this June comes news of the following:

Logo - FreightlinerDaimler Trucks North America LLC (“DTNA”) has recalled an estimated 9,702 model year certain 2012-2019 Freightliner Custom Chassis MT55 and MT45 vehicles. The brake pedal clevis pin clip may rub or bend on the throttle pedal and possibly detach.

According to the NHTSA, if the clip is detaches and clevis pin slides out of position, the brake lights may fail. Loss of brake lights may mislead other drivers if they are unaware the vehicle is stopping or slowing down, which increases the risk of crash. If the pin continues to slide out further, the pedal may detach, increasing the risk of crash.

DTNA will notify the vehicle manufacturers that purchased these chassis, and DTNA dealers will inspect the clevis pin clearance and correct it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 12, 2019. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA’s designation for this recall is FL-814.
