Recall Summary: Autocar, LLC (Autocar) is recalling certain model year 2008-2014 ACX, WX, and WXLL vehicles manufactured July 30, 2007, through February 10, 2014, and equipped with certain Cummins Westport Model ISL G or ISX12 G engines. Condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.
Hazard: The improper operation of the sensor could induce elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire or burn injury to a person near the exhaust pipe.
Remedy: Cummins Inc. and Cummins Wesport Inc. will notify owners, and authorized Cummins service facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 1, 2014. Owners may contact Autocar at 1-765-489-5499 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357. Autocar's number for this recall is A-1402.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

2013-05-09 (Published by NHTSA on 2013-05-17)
Recall Summary: Autocar, LLC is recalling certain model year 2005-2013 ACX, WX, and WXLL trucks built November 16, 2004, through September 10, 2012. On the affected vehicles, the air brake systems were built without the required air tank drain valve. Therefore, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Hazard: Air tanks with valves omitted will not drain if moisture is introduced into the tank, potentially reducing air capacity in the air brake system, which could cause a reduction in brake performance and equipment durability, thus increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Autocar will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 2, 2013. Owners may contact Autocar at 1-765-489-5499. Autocar's recall campaign number is A-1302.
Additional Info: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

Recall Summary: AUTOCAR IS RECALLING 127 MY 2008-2009 ACX, WX, AND WXLL HEAVY DUTY CLASS 8 TRUCKS.

2008-01-23 (Published by NHTSA on 2008-01-23)
Recall Summary: CERTAIN VEHICLES WERE BUILT WITH A TELESCOPING STEERING SHAFT BETWEEN THE IN-CAB STEERING COMPONENTS AND THE POWER STEERING GEAR BOX, LOCATED ON THE VEHICLE'S FRAME. THE STEERING SHAFT HAS BEEN DETERMINED TO BE TOO LONG.
Hazard: THE ADDITIONAL LENGTH IN THE STEERING SHAFT RESULTS IN THE NEED FOR INCREASED STEERING EFFORT ON THE PART OF THE VEHICLE'S DRIVER. THE DRIVER MAY NOT BE PREPARED FOR SUCH NEED, WHICH COULD RESULT IN AN UNPREDICTABLE REACTION BY THE DRIVER, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy: AUTOCAR WILL PROVIDE INSTRUCTIONS FOR SCHEDULING THE REPAIR OF THESE VEHICLES AT AN AUTHORIZED AUTOCAR SERVICE FACILITY FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON MARCH 7, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT AUTOCAR AT 1-765-489-6024.

Recall Summary: CERTAIN TRUCKS FAIL TO COMPLY WITH REQUIREMENTS OF PART 568, 'VEHICLES MANUFACTURED IN TWO OR MORE STAGES, ALL INCOMPLETE, INTERMEDIATE AND FINAL-STAGE MANUFACTURERS OF VEHICLES MANUFACTURED IN TWO OR MORE STAGES.' THE GROSS VEHICLE WEIGHT RATING (GVWR) LABEL, AS APPLIED, MAY NOT BE ACCURATE. THE GVWR LABEL MAY INDICATE THAT THE VEHICLE'S LOAD CAPACITY IS HIGHER THAN THE DESIGNED WEIGHT RATING.
Hazard: DUE TO THE ERROR IN GVWR LABELING, IT IS POSSIBLE THAT A VEHICLE COULD BE OVERLOADED WITHOUT THE VEHICLE OPERATOR'S KNOWLEDGE. A VEHICLE IN AN OVERLOADED CONDITION MAY BE SUSCEPTIBLE TO COMPONENT FAILURE THAT MAY RESULT IN LOSS OF VEHICLE CONTROL, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy: AUTOCAR WILL SEND A LETTER WHICH DESCRIBES THE DISCREPANCY IN GVWR LABELING, AND WILL INCLUDE A COMPLETE SET OF REVISED GVWR LABELS INCLUDING A REVISED INCOMPLETE VEHICLE DOCUMENT LABEL ALONG WITH INSTRUCTIONS FOR APPLICATION OF THE LABELS.
