Over 105,000 Cascadias recalled; steering issue cited

Freightliner 660x440

Daimler Trucks North America is recalling some 105,183 model year 2019-2021 Freightliner Cascadias because of a possible issue in the steering system, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

According to the recall, the drag link taper joint in the affected trucks may not have been tightened sufficiently and could come loose, resulting in a complete separation of the drag link from the steering arm. Separation of the drag link can cause the loss of steering control.

DTNA dealers will inspect the drag link taper joint and repair it as necessary.

Owners can contact DTNA's customer service at 1-800-547-0712 with recall number FL-900. NHTSA’s recall number is 21V-689.
