Navistar, Inc. (Navistar) is recalling approximately 130 model-year 2019 International Workstar and International HV vehicles equipped with Meritor MX-14-120 EVO steer axles.

Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steer axle wheel hubs for proper fluid level and repair any damaged wheel end components and spindles, as necessary, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin May 1, 2020. Navistar's number for this recall is 20503.
