    • Total cars affected: 4625

    • NHTSA campaign: 18V766000

    • Date of the problem: 30/10/2018

    The driver may operate the vehicle with the snow plow headlights on but the marker and tail lamps off, reducing the vehicle's visibility and increasing the risk of a crash.

    • Total cars affected: 4177

    • NHTSA campaign: 16V735000

    • Date of the problem: 13/10/2016

    If water and contaminants enter the ball joint, corrosion can occur and lead to accelerated wear, which over time can result in failure of the ball joint, possibly resulting in complete loss of steering, increasing the risk of a crash.

    POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION

    • Total cars affected: 6234

    • NHTSA campaign: 14V739000

    • Date of the problem: 18/11/2014

    • Total cars affected: 23056

    • NHTSA campaign: 13V268000

    • Date of the problem: 26/06/2013

    Without a signal to disengage the clutch when the brakes are applied, the distance required to stop the truck may lengthen, increasing the risk of a crash.

    • Total cars affected: 5207

    • NHTSA campaign: 13V102000

    • Date of the problem: 21/03/2013

    SEAT BELTS

    • Total cars affected: 1496

    • NHTSA campaign: 12V510000

    • Date of the problem: 18/10/2012

    In the event of a crash, an insufficient seat belt weld may prevent the seat belt from properly restraining the occupant. This increases the risk of injury to the seat occupant.

    • Total cars affected: 21625

    • NHTSA campaign: 12V036000

    • Date of the problem: 01/02/2012

    INADVERTENT BRAKE APPLICATION CAN CAUSE THE BRAKES TO OVERHEAT AND LEAD TO A FIRE. INADVERTENT BRAKE APPLICATION CAN CAUSE THE WHEELS TO LOCK-UP LEADING THE DRIVER TO LOSE CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE, INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

    VISIBILITY/WIPER

    • Total cars affected: 17824

    • NHTSA campaign: 13V349000

    • Total cars affected: 341

    • NHTSA campaign: 11V294000

    • Date of the problem: 20/05/2011

    THIS CAN RESULT IN SEAM WELD FRACTURE WHEN TORQUE IS APPLIED. ONCE THE TUBE SEAM WELD IS FRACTURED, THE DRIVELINE MAY BECOME INOPERABLE, WHICH MAY RESULT IN A DISABLED VEHICLE OR DEBRIS FROM THE DRIVELINE FALLING ONTO THE ROADWAY, BOTH OF WHICH CAN INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.
