Daimler Trucks North America is recalling tens of thousands of various Freightliner and Western Star trucks due to a brake issue.
Specifically, Daimler Trucks is recalling certain 2022 Freightliner 114SD, 2017-23 Freightliner Cascadia, 2022-23 Western Star 47X and 2022-23 Western Star 49X trucks.
According to National Highway Traffic Safety documents, the brake modulator valves on the front axle may corrode and cause the vehicle to pull to the affected side during braking initiated by electronic stability control or roll stability control. Brakes that pull to one side may cause a sudden change in vehicle direction, increasing the risk of a crash.
Dealers will replace the front brake modulator valves for free. Daimler Trucks plans send out notification letters to owners of affected trucks on April 10.
