Navistar recalling 2,700 International trucks

Navistar recalling 2,700 International trucks

Navistar is recalling approximately 2,700 International trucks because of a problem that could cause the air brakes to lose pressure.

Affected trucks include 2017 International LoneStar models manufactured between June 7 and Dec. 20, 2016; 2016-2017 International ProStar models manufactured between May 5, 2015 and Dec. 22, 2016; 2016-2018 International LT models manufactured between June 1, 2015 and Jan. 12, 2017; and 2017-2018 International RH models manufactured between March 30, 2016 and Dec. 14, 2016.

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 National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Navistar will notify owners of affected trucks beginning May 12 and dealers will replace the air dryer mounting bracket, free of charge. Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov.
