This week we have four new recalls, from small to major adjustments.
Lion Electric Company, Chrysler, Paccar Incorporated, and Altec Industries have all announced recalls of certain vehicles in January.
- Chrysler has recalled certain 2022 Ram Promaster Chassis Cab and incomplete vehicles equipped with an analog rearview camera. The analog rearview camera is the wrong type of camera and cannot be installed. Because of this, the vehicle fails to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 111, "Rear Visibility." Owners will receive a free digital rearview camera.
- Certain 2020-2022 Lion Electric Company Lion6 and Lion8 vehicles are recalled. The rear axle adjusting ring fasteners were not tightened properly on the passenger-side. This causes premature wear on the suspension and differential components. The owners can get the fasteners inspected and tightened for free.
- Paccar recalled certain 2022-2023 Peterbilt 579 and 2023 Kenworth T680 vehicles. The battery-electric heavy-duty electronic stability control program software is incorrect and may underestimate the mass of the vehicle. The vehicles may fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 136, "Electronic Stability Control Systems on Heavy Vehicles." The software can be updated at the dealership.
- Altec Industries has recalled certain 2022 DC & DM Series Digger Derrick vehicles. During production, an incorrect bolt may have been used to attach the derrick rotation bearing. This can cause separation of the rotation bearing and increase risk of injury. Altec will inspect the bolt and correct if needed.
