Paccar is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 Kenworth T680 and T880 trucks and model year 2013-2014 Peterbilt Model 567, 579 and 587 trucks equipped with air ride seats. The cables for anchoring the seat belt buckles of both the driver and passenger seat may fray.

In the event of a crash, a frayed seat belt could cause the belt to separate from the seat, increasing the risk of injury to the seat occupant.

Paccar will notify owners and dealers will replace both seat belt buckle assemblies, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin next month. Owners may contact Kenworth at 1-425-828-5000 or Peterbilt at 1-940-591-4000.

Kenworth's recall campaign number is 13KWD. Peterbilt's recall campaign number is 0313-D. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more information.
