Recalls - 2014 MACK MRU

What is a recall? The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, generally in cooperation with the vehicle manufacturer, issues recalls when a motor vehicle or item of motor vehicle equipment (including tires) does not comply with a Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard or when there is a safety-related defect in the vehicle or equipment. Work dictated by a recall is generally completed at no charge to the vehicle owner, regardless of whether you are the first owner or a subsequent owner. Please contact your service facilities for additional details and to confirm that this recall is relevant to your particular vehicle.

Defect Description

Mack Trucks, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2013-2014 CHU, CXU, GU, MRU, and LEU trucks manufactured July 16, 2012, through march 18, 2013 and equipped with drum brakes. The clevis pin for the brake slack adjuster may be missing a cotter pin. If the cotter pin is not installed, the clevis pin may loosen and fall out causing a loss of brake function on the affected wheel.

Defect Consequence

A loss of brake function at one wheel will lead to increased stopping distances and pulling to the left or right when braking, which may increase the risk of a crash.

Defect Corrective Action

Mack Trucks, Inc. will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake slack adjusters and install the brake hardware, as necessary, free of charge. An interim was mailed to owners on June 20, 2013. A second notice was mailed to owners on September 30, 2013. Owners may contact Mack Trucks at 1-800-528-6586. Mack Trucks' recall campaign number is SC0370.

Defect Description

Mack Trucks, Inc. (Mack) is recalling certain model year 2014 CXU and MRU trucks manufactured August 12, 2013, through October 9, 2013 and equipped with IMMI-brand L9 seat belt buckles. When the button is pressed to release the seat belt, the latch plate can become partially engaged with the buckle, making the seat belt difficult to unlatch. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 209, "Seat Belt Assemblies."

Defect Consequence

If the latch plate remains partially engaged after the button is pressed, egress from the vehicle could be hindered which would increase the risk of injury in the event of an emergency.

Defect Corrective Action

Mack will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the seat belt buckle, and if necessary, replace the seat belt buckles, free of charge. The recall began on January 30, 2014. Owners may contact Mack Trucks at 1-336-393-2000. This is Mack Recall No. SC0373.

Condensation in the intake manifold may freeze during cold weather conditions and interfere with the proper operation of the intake manifold pressure sensor.

Defect Consequence

The improper operation of the sensor could induce elevated exhaust temperatures or flames from the exhaust pipe, increasing the risk of a vehicle fire or burn injury to a person near the exhaust pipe.

Defect Corrective Action

Cummins and Cummins Westport will notify owners, and authorized Cummins service facilities will upload a new ECM calibration, free of charge. The recall began on March 12, 2014. Customers may contact Mack at 1-336-393-2000 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357. Mack's number for this recall is SC0377.

Defect Description

Mack Trucks, Inc. (Mack) is recalling certain model year 2011-2016 Mack MRU and LEU trucks manufactured June 25, 2010, to April 30, 2015, and 2015-2016 LR6 trucks manufactured from December 18, 2014 through March 6, 2015. Excessive engine crankcase pressures may cause the 90-degree elbow of the vent tube assembly to detach from the crankcase ventilation breather, possibly allowing engine oil to come into contact with hot surfaces.

Defect Consequence

If engine oil comes into contact with a hot surface, there could be an increased risk of a fire.

Defect Corrective Action

Cummins will notify owners on behalf of Mack, and Cummins service centers will administer the repairs which include securing the ends of the 90-degree elbow and reprogramming the electronic control module (ECM) with software that can adjust the engine output under misfire conditions to limit crankcase pressures. These repairs will be performed free of charge. The recall began on June 12, 2015. Owners may contact Mack customer service at 1-800-528-6586 or Cummins Inc. at 1-800-343-7357. Mack's number for this recall is SC0391.
