2015-06-03 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-06-27)
Recall Summary: Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2007-2016 Freightliner 114SD and M2 Business Class trucks, 2008-2009 Sterling LT8500 trucks and Thomas Built Bus Saf-T-Liner HDX transit buses equipped with certain Cummins Westport ISL G engines. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.
Hazard: If engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there is an increased risk of a fire.
Remedy: Cummins will notify owners on behalf of DTNA, and dealers will secure the ends of the 90-degree elbow. In addition, the electronic control module (ECM) will be reprogrammed with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on July 27, 2015. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-745-8000 or Cummins customer service at 1-800-343-7357. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-681.
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: Fontaine Modification (Fontaine) is recalling certain model year 2006-2015 Freightliner M2 trucks manufactured January 2, 2006, to January 23, 2015 and modified by Fontaine to have dual steering. Brake lights of the affected vehicles will not illuminate if the primary brake air supply is depleted below 6 psi. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Hazard: If the primary brake air system fails causing the truck to rely on the secondary brake air system, the brakes lights may not illuminate when the brakes are applied, increasing the risk of a crash.

Hazard: If the platform side plates crack, the lift platform can separate from the lift and come to rest against the vehicle's lift door. When the doors are opened, the platform may fall out, increasing the risk of injury to the lift operator.
Remedy: Farber will notify owners to take their vehicles to a Ricon dealer or service center who will install supplemental platform support bumpers.

Recall Summary: Daimler Trucks of North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2011-2015 Freightliner Cascadia and M2 trucks manufactured June 2,2011 to October 23, 2014. The vehicles are not in compliance with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standards No. 303, "Fuel System Integrity Of Compressed Natural Gas Vehicles." Specifically, the tail pipe on these vehicles terminates under the compressed natural gas (CNG) tank and can overheat the fuel system.
Hazard: Due to the area of its placement, the exhaust system forces heat around, and may overheat, the fuel system components, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire.
Remedy: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will extend the tailpipe beyond the cabinet, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 23, 2014. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-745-8000. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-671.
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.

2014-09-23 (Published by NHTSA on 2014-11-11)
Recall Summary: Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2013 Freightliner Business Class M2 vehicles manufactured May 29, 2012, to June 11, 2012, and equipped with certain compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel tank systems manufactured by Agility Fuel Systems. In the affected fuel systems, due to a separation of the valve seat from the valve stem, the manual tank shutoff valve can get internally stuck in the closed position while being opened, although the knob may indicate that the valve is open.
Hazard: If the valve is stuck closed, the flow of fuel would be blocked from the fuel container to the engine. Such a condition poses a safety risk to service personnel as there is no safe way to depressurize the fuel system and service the subject valve when it is stuck in the closed position, increasing the risk of injury to the service personnel. There may also be a small fuel leak through the valve stem when the valve seat becomes detached, increasing the risk of fire. The affected fuel container may also become over-pressurized if the stuck valve goes undetected for a period of time, or is not repaired in a timely manner, and the ambient temperature increases significantly.
Remedy: DTNA will notify owners, and Agility Fuel Systems dealers will replace the valve seat and stem assembly, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on November 21, 2014. Owners may contact DTNA's customer service at 1-800-745-8000 or Agility's customer service at 1-949-236-5520. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-669.
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.

The Cummins ISB or ISL engines in these vehicles may have been equipped with Fleetguard UFF-XT fuel filters, part number FF63009, whose filter shell may separate from the fuel filter nut plate causing the engine to stall without warning.
Hazard: If the engine stalls unexpectedly there is an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy: Cummins will notify owners on behalf of DTNA, and dealers will replace the fuel filter with a non-defective one, free of charge. The recall began on September 29, 2014. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-745-8000 or Cummins customer service at 1-800-223-4583. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-664.

Due to an axle manufacturing error, there may be weak spots in the beam of the affected axle assemblies.
Hazard: The axle weak spots could cause the axle beam to bend or cause wheel separation, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the axle beams for certain manufacturing dates, and replace the ones manufactured within a certain date range, free of charge.

The specific potting compound used in the subject products for insulation was found to be capable of conducting electricity after being exposed to heat.
Hazard: Once electrically conductive, the material is capable of melting and burning, increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy: DUECO will notify owners, and Sure Power will replace the converters, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in May 2014. Owners may contact Dueco at 1-800-558-4004.

When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, making the seat belt difficult to unlatch. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."
Hazard: If the latch plate remains partially engaged after the button is pressed, egress from the vehicle could be hindered which would increase the risk of injury in the event of an emergency.
