Daimler Trucks North America is recalling more than 160,000 Freightliner Cascadia models for an issue that could affect the trucks’ automatic braking systems, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.
Daimler’s recall affects about 164,317 model year 2017-2021 Cascadia trucks. DTNA says the single brake modulator valve may be affected by chemical corrosion, which can slow down the release timing and cause the brakes to pull to the affected side during automatic braking events.
Daimler will notify owners of affected trucks, and dealers will perform repairs for free. Owners can contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-855. NHTSA’s recall number is 20V-390.
