Updated Nov 2, 2019

Daimler Trucks North America recently  announced a recall of more than 2,500 Western Star trucks for a potential sleeper door issue, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

The recall affects about 2,546 model year 2017-2020 Western Star 4900 and 5700 trucks. DTNA says the adhesive bond may fail on the sleeper side door, allowing it to separate from the hinges.

Daimler says it is still working on a fix for this issue. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-834. NHTSA’s recall number is 19V-722.
