Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2014-2017 Freightliner M2 Business Class, 108 SD, 114 SD, Cascadia, Coronado, Western Star 4700, 4800, and 5700 XE trucks manufactured March 15, 2013, to July 29, 2016 and equipped with Conmet aluminum non-high capacity hubs. These vehicles specify a front axle weight limit that may be greater than that of the hub capacity. As a result, the hub may fail and the wheel may separate from the axle.
If a wheel separates from the axle, there would be an increased risk of a crash.
DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will replace the front axle hubs, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 27, 2016. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-745-8000. DTNA’s number for this recall is FL-718.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
