Recall: Defect could cause ‘unintended vehicle movement’ in 21,000 Navistar trucks


Navistar recently announced that they’ll be recalling tens of thousands of trucks for a clutch component defect that could increase the risk of a crash.

The recall affects certain 2019 International HV, MV, 2018-2019 HX, LT, RH, LoneStar, ProStar, WorkStar, and 2018 TranStar automated manual transmission vehicles that are equipped with Eaton ECA heavy-duty truck clutches.

According to recall documents, “an internal component in the clutch assembly may fail, possibly resulting in unintended vehicle movement“, which in turn could cause a crash.

Authorities say that 20,916 trucks are affected by the recall.

The recall is expected to begin on January 18, 2019. At that time, Navistar will reach out to truck owners and make the necessary repairs for free.

If you have questions about the recall, truck owners may call Navistar customer service at 1-800-448-7825 and reference recall number 18518.
