Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling approximately 97,000 trucks because the left rear wheel-bearing hub locking bolts may not have been properly tightened during assembly, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The loose bolts in these trucks might allow the wheel assembly to move outward from the axle housing, affecting vehicle control and reducing braking performance. These conditions raise the risk of a crash, NHTSA said.
The recall includes 2011-2016 NPR, 2011-2017 NPR-HD, NQR, NRR, 2015-2017 NPR-XD, 2012-2016 Reach, NPR Gas and NPR-HD Gas incomplete trucks. Dealers will inspect the left rear wheel-bearing hub locking bolts and tighten them if needed. There will be no charge for this service.
Truck owners can reach Isuzu customer service at (866) 441-9638.
