Recall Summary: Mack Trucks, Inc (Mack) is recalling certain model year 2012-2015 CXU trucks manufactured February 4, 2011, to December 23, 2014, and equipped with an air release fifth wheel latch. The affected vehicles have a switch to release the fifth wheel latch that may invertently be pushed and cause the trailer to unintentionally disconnect from the tractor after the parking brake has been released.
Hazard: An inadvertent decoupling of the trailer from the tractor may increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy: Mack will notify owners, and dealers will install a secondary action that operators will need to activate before the fifth wheel will release, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 4, 2015. Owners may contact Mack customer service at 1-800-528-6586. Mack's number for this recall is SC0390.
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.

2015-02-03 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-02-12)
Recall Summary: Mack Trucks, Inc. (Mack) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 CXU trucks manufactured June 1, 2013, to November 28, 2014. These trucks may be equipped with an 88 liter air reservoir for the brakes instead of a 96 liter air reservoir. The lower volume of air may result in increased distances being needed to stop the truck. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 121, "Air Brake Systems."
Hazard: If the truck unexpectedly requires extra distance to stop, there is an increased risk of a crash.
Remedy: Mack will notify owners, and dealers will install a larger air brake reservoir tank, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 26, 2015. Owners may contact Mack customer service at 1-800-528-6586. Mack's number for this recall is SC0389.
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.

2015-01-22 (Published by NHTSA on 2015-02-07)
Recall Summary: Mack Trucks, Inc. (Mack) is recalling certain model year 2015 CXU trucks manufactured May 20, 2014, to November 12, 2014 equipped with certain Haldex Life Seal Type 30/30 Long Stroke Air Brake Actuators manufactured January 9, 2014, to October 28, 2014. The affected actuators may have an incomplete attachment of the internal rubber diaphragm to the actuation mechanism of the parking brake section of the Life Seal actuator.
Hazard: If the diaphragm is not completely attached, there may be internal leakage from the service section past the diaphragm, potentially trapping air pressure in the parking brake section. This air pressure in turn, if not vented, may prevent full release of the actuator unit, and may induce brake drag and may result in overheated wheelend service brakes, increasing the risk of a fire.
Remedy: Mack will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake actuator and replace, as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 27, 2015. Owners may contact Mack customer service at 1-610-709-2131. Mack's number for this recall is SC0387.
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.
