Detailed Recall Information for Autocar Wxll
|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.|
