|2014-02-26||(Published by NHTSA on 2014-03-20)|
|Recall Summary:||Caterpillar Inc. (Caterpillar) is recalling certain model year 2012-2013 CT660 trucks manufactured August 2011 through August 2012, and equipped with feature code 0504501, 0504504, or 04EWM Reduced Stopping Distance (RSD) brake linings and with or without feature code 04WCS Greased For Life front air S-cam brakes. In the affected vehicles, the brake S-cam brackets may fracture.|
|Hazard:||S-cam bracket fractures may result in an inoperative brake on the affected wheel. This will cause the vehicle to pull to one side unexpectedly during braking and/or increase the stopping distance. Either result may increase the risk of a crash.|
|Remedy:||Caterpillar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the S-cam brake assemblies with a brake assembly with cast spiders and S-cam tube bracket assemblies with reinforced gussets, free of charge. Owners will be notified with an interim letter before the end of April 2014 and will be mailed an additional letter once parts are available to remedy the vehicles. Owners may contact Caterpillar at 1-888-614-4328.|

|2013-03-05||(Published by NHTSA on 2013-03-05)|
|Recall Summary:||Caterpillar is recalling certain 2012 and 2014 Caterpillar CT660 heavy duty trucks manufactured by Navistar between October 31, 2011, and January 23, 2013. Certain side marker lamps and/or reflective tape were not applied to these vehicles, which have a length of 30 feet or longer. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."|
|Hazard:||Missing side marker lamps and/or reflective tape reduces the visibility of the truck to others, which increases the risk of a vehicle crash.|
|Remedy:||Caterpillar will notify owners, and dealers will repair the vehicles free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during April 2013. Owners may contact Caterpillar at 1-800-447-4986.|
