Truckers told not to drive recalled Kenworths and Peterbilts due to risk of ‘complete loss of steering control’

Published:

PACCAR Incorporated has issued a recall for certain Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks due to a risk of loss of steering control.

PACCAR recently announced the recall of 3,887 trucks for a steering defect.

According to recall documents, “the tie rod or drag link assembly may contain an improperly heat-treated ball stud, causing the ball stud to break,” which in turn could cause a complete loss of steering capability.

Officials are asking truckers not to drive any of the recalled vehicles until repairs are completed.
