72K Freightliners could increase a fire
Daimler Trucks North America recalled tens of thousands of trucks for a lighting problem that could increase the fire.
DTNA is recalling certain 2017-2022 Freightliner Cascadia equipped with halogen headlights.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall documents, the halogen headlight bulb may dislodge during replacement and contact other vehicle components, possibly causing them to melt, which could in turn increase the risk of a fire.
The total number of recalled trucks is 72,508 units.
The recall is expected to begin on July 12, 2021. DTNA will contact truck owners and dealers will install a foam grommet, cut a 4-inch access hole into the inner fender, and add a warning label on both fenders, free of charge.
