Navistar Recalling Thousands of ProStar Trucks

Lisle, IL— Navistar is recalling more than 2,800 model year 2013-2014 International ProStar sleeper cab vehicles manufactured Dec. 12, 2012, through Aug. 8, of this year, that are equipped with feature code 16XSA, 16XSB, 16XSC or 16XSD chassis skirts.

In the affected vehicles, the rear chassis skirt upper horizontal support S-bracket may rub the fuel tank causing a hole in the tank, truckinginfo writes.

A hole in the tank would allow fuel to leak onto the roadway causing dangerous driving conditions, which could result in a vehicle crash, property damage, personal injury, or death, a U.S. Highway Traffic Safety Administration bulletin warns.

But Navistar will talk with affected truck owners and dealers will reinstall the chassis skirt with proper clearance, for free. If necessary, the fuel tank will be replaced.

The recall is expected to start by January 20, 2014. Navistar's recall number is 13517.

Owners can call Navistar at 1-331-332-1590.
