Navistar Recalling More Than 16,000 2008-2013 Model Trucks
October 28, 2013
Navistar is recalling 16.107 model year 2008-2013 International LoneStar, ProStar, and TranStar trucks manufactured Feb. 20, 2008, through July 29 of this year, that are and equipped with an electronic fifth wheel jaw release system. This is feature code 0595BAW or 0595BAY.
A National Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin says due to an assembly error, the air lines at the isolation/vent valve may not be oriented correctly. Because of the improper orientation, in the event of an air leakage at the isolation/vent valve, the fifth wheel jaw may release, unexpectedly releasing the trailer from the tractor, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Navistar is in the process of notifying owners, and dealers will inspect the airline routing. If necessary, the air line routing will be corrected free of charge.
Owners may contact Navistar at 331-332-1590. Navistar's recall number is 13514. They may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236
