9,000 trailers recalled

Hyundai Translead is recalling 8,967 trailers in connection with a previously announced recall of Bendix SR5 spring brake valves. The trailers in question are model year 2004-2016 dry vans, refrigerated vans, chassis and container trailers manufactured between Jan. 4, 2014, and March 4, 2016.

These trailers are equipped with certain Bendix SR5 spring brake valves, which may have been improperly machined causing a potential delay of application of the spring brakes while parking. If there is a delay, the trailer may roll away after it has decoupled from the tractor, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall began Aug. 4, 2016. Owners may contact Hyundai Translead customer service at 819-574-1500 with recall number 16E-045.
