Vehicle MakeModelModel Year(s) Navistar Recall

  • INTERNATIONALPROSTAR2012-2013
  • INTERNATIONALTRANSTAR2012-2013

 

SUMMARY:

Navistar is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 International brand ProStar and TranStar commercial trucks, manufactured from August 01, 2011, through June 12, 2012, and equipped with front brake linings listed as feature codes 0504501 or 0504504. The brake S-Cam tube bracket assemblies on the steer axles may fracture.

CONSEQUENCE:

Brake assembly fractures may result in an inoperative brake on the affected wheel. This will cause the vehicle to pull to one side unexpectedly during breaking and/or increase the stopping distance. Either result may increase the risk of a vehicle crash.

REMEDY:

Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will replace S-Cam tube bracket assemblies free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin by August 23, 2013. Owners may contact Navistar at 1-800-448-7825.

NOTES:

This recall campaign has been superseded by recall campaign 13V-231. Navistar’s recall campaign number is 12530. 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.
