Daimler Recalls 379 Freightliner Cascadia Trucks

Portland, OR — Daimler Trucks North America is recalling 379 model year 2013-2014 Freightliner Cascadia trucks, manufactured Dec.11, 2012, through Nov. 27, 2013 that are equipped with Meritor Wabco’s electronically controlled air suspension system.

In the affected vehicles, the wiring harnesses for the ECAS may have been reversed. If the wiring harnesses are connected in reverse, it may adjust the suspension axle height incorrectly, reducing driving traction and the effectiveness of the parking brake. Either result increases the risk of a crash.

DTNA will notify the owners, and dealers will inspect the ECAS wiring, correcting it as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin Feb. 16.

Owners may contact Daimler at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-656.
