Navistar Recalls Trucks for Possible Brake Problems

Mark Elias/Bloomberg News

Navistar is recalling some trucks due to the possible loss of air brake pressure that could “increase the risk of a crash,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says.

The potential number of trucks affected is 2,733, according to NHTSA, and includes certain 2016-2018 International LT, 2016-2017 International ProStar, 2017 International LoneStar and 2017-2018 International RH heavy diesel trucks.

The potential problem is with the air dryer mounting bracket, which may fracture and cause air system leaks or a loss of air pressure to the brake system, according to NHTSA.

Navistar will notify owners and dealers will replace the air dryer mounting bracket, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 12.

Owners may also contact NHTSA's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 800-424-9153) or go to www.safercar.gov.
