Truck Manufacturer Recalls More Kenworth Models

Bellevue, WA — Truck manufacturer Paccar is recalling even more Kenworth truck models than they previously announced on Jan. 1.

On Jan. 1, Paccar issued a recall for 5,087 year 2014 Kenworth T170, T270, T370, T440, T470, T660, T680, T700, T880, and W900 trucks because of stop-tail-turn lamp issues.

Now, they’re also recalling model year 2014 Kenworth T440, T800 and C500 manufactured July 1, 2013 through Sept. 17, 2013. 

In the affected vehicles, the plastic housing of the stop-tail-turn lamp can shrink, allowing the light bulb to fall out of the mounted retention ring, causing it to not light up. As a result, the vehicles affected fail to meet Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108 "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment.” The issue could also increase the risk of a crash.

Kenworth will notify owners, and dealers will replace the defective STT lamps with new lamps. The recall is expected to begin sometime in January.

Customers may contact Paccar at 1-425-468-7400. Kenworth's number for this recall is 13KWM.
