Recall Summary: PACCAR is recalling certain model year 2007-2014 Kenworth T800 and W900 trucks manufactured March 22, 2006, through July 15, 2013 and equipped with Primaax tridem rear suspensions and a pusher and/or tag axle. The affected trucks have brake chambers that take longer to apply or release the brakes than the required time limit. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Hazard: Brakes that take longer to apply may lengthen the distance needed to stop the truck, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy: PACCAR will notify owners, and dealers will modify the air brake system, free of charge. The recall will begin by mid-January. Owners may contact PACCAR at 1-425-468-7400. Kenworth's recall number is 13KWL.
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: PACCAR IS RECALLING 172 MY 2007 KENWORTH T800 SHORT HOOD, W900 LONG HOOD AND T600 TRACTOR/TRAILERS EQUIPPED WITH SAF-HOLLAND SIMPLEX FIFTH WHEELS. IF THE PIVOT BOLT JOINT FOR THE LEVER BAR IS OVER TORQUED, THE SPACER DEFORMS, AND MAKES CONTACT WITH THE LEVER BAR.

THE PINTLE HITCH ASSEMBLIES MAY HAVE BEEN MANUFACTURED IN A MANNER RESULTING IN A REDUCTION OF FATIGUE STRENGTH OF THE PIVOT PINS.
Hazard: THIS REDUCTION OF FATIGUE STRENGTH COULD CAUSE THE PIVOT PIN TO CRACK AND EVENTUALLY BREAK, CAUSING THE TRAILER TO DETACH FROM THE TRUCK WHILE IN MOTION, WHICH COULD CAUSE A CRASH THAT COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY OR DEATH.
Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE POTENTIALLY DEFECTIVE PIVOT PIN FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL BEGAN ON APRIL 18, 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT KENWORTH AT 1-425-828-5440 OR PETERBILT AT 1-940-591-4196.

2006-11-27 (Published by NHTSA on 2006-11-27)
Recall Summary: ON CERTAIN TRUCKS EQUIPPED WITH A TRW TILT/TELESCOPING STEERING COLUMN, THE TILT LOCKING MECHANISM ON THE STEERING COLUMN MAY DISENGAGE. THIS COULD PREVENT THE STEERING COLUMN FROM LOCKING IN TO PREDETERMINED POSITIONS.
Hazard: SHOULD THE LOCKING MECHANISM DISENGAGE, THE TILTING TRAVEL OF THE COLUMN WOULD BE UNRESTRICTED. THIS UNRESTRICTED TRAVEL ALLOWS THE STEERING WHEEL TO IMPACT THE DASH AND COULD LIMIT THE MOVEMENT OF THE STEERING WHEEL POTENTIALLY RESULTING IN DIFFICULTY MANEUVERING THE VEHICLE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy: DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE TILT LOCKING MECHANISM WITH A REVISED DESIGN THAT INCORPORATES A NEW BRACKET FOR RESTRAINING THE TILTING MECHANISM. THE RECALL BEGAN ON DECEMBER 22, 2006. OWNERS MAY CONTACT KENWORTH AT 1-425-828-5440.
Additional Info: KENWORTH RECALL NO. 06KW2.CUSTOMERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV.
