This week’s recall roundup addresses various vehicle issues including wipers on the Ford F-150; tonneaus on the Toyota Tundra; front axles on Mack Granite trucks; battery boxes on International HV and MV trucks; and rear axles on International HV and MV trucks.
- Ford is recalling certain 2021 F-150 vehicles. The windshield wiper arms may break, causing the windshield wipers to fail. Inoperative windshield wipers can reduce visibility in certain conditions, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 222,454 units are affected by the recall. Ford recently recalled its all-electric F-150 Lightning over battery fire concerns.
- Toyota is recalling 2022 and 2023 Tundras for possible tonneau failure. Tonneau cover attachment joints may come loose and allow the cover to detach increasing the risk for a crash. NHTSA reports that the recall potentially impacts 130,266 trucks.
- Mack Trucks is recalling certain 2023 Granite (GR) vehicles. The front-drive steer axle fasteners may not have been tightened sufficiently and could come loose, resulting in a complete separation of the axle assembly joints. Steer axle assembly separation can result in a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 17 units are affected by the recall.
- Navistar is recalling certain 2023 International HV and 2023-2024 International MV vehicles. The assembly bolts used to attach the battery box to the mounting bracket may be loose or missing. Loose or missing bolts can allow the battery box to detach from the vehicle and become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 791 units are affected by the recall.
- Navistar is recalling certain 2023 International HV and 2023-2024 International MV vehicles. The rear axle spring wedge shim may have been incorrectly installed, which can cause U-joint failure and result in driveshaft separation. Driveshaft separation can cause a loss of drive power and increase the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 660 units are affected by the recall.
