2,622 International ProStar Sleeper Cabs Recalled Over Crash Risk

Posted on

International ProStar sleeper cabs of the 2013 and 2014 model years are being recalled by Navistar because of an issue with the chassis skirts, which could have one of four different feature codes (16XSA through 16XSD).  The S-brackets on the upper horizontal supports of these components could come into contact with the fuel tank in a manner that can lead a hole to form.  This can cause a fuel leak that could make the surface of the road slick and potentially contribute to a crash along with all attendant injury and fatality risks that would pose.  2,622 vehicles could be affected by this recall, and owners of those cabs will hear from Navistar once the recall begins in January.  Free replacements of the chassis skirt and impacted fuel tanks can be sought at that time.
