Two recalls cover 200 Freightliner and Western Star trucks

Two separate recalls from Daimler Trucks North America include more than 200 Freightliner and Western Star trucks, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

The largest of the two recalls involves 185 trucks in which the gross axle weight rating (GAWR) listed on the Federal Certification Label is incorrect, which can allow the trucks to be overloaded, the recall states. Affected trucks include certain 2020 Freightliner Cascadia, 2020-2022 Western Star 4700 and 5700, 2022 Western Star 4900, and 2020-2023 Freightliner New Cascadia models.

Dealers will replace the GAWR labels for free. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 800-547-0712 with recall number FL-933. NHTSA’s recall number is 22V-338.

The other recall affects approximately 24 model year 2022 Freightliner Cascadia trucks in which the antilock brakes (ABS) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems may be manually disabled. As such, the trucks fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard numbers 121, “Air Brake Systems,” and 136, “Electronic Stability Control Systems on Heavy Vehicles.”

Dealers will correct this feature to bring the trucks into compliance. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 800-547-0712 with recall number FL-932. NHTSA’s recall number is 22V-339.
