1,500 Navistar Trucks in Canada Recalled
LISLE, IL - Nearly 1,500 Navistar International model trucks in Canada are among 16,500 that are being recalled here and in the U.S. The bulk are ProStar models, but the recall also includes the DuraStar, WorkStar, TransStar and LoneStar models, all from the 2012-2013 model year. The move follows an investigation by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that the trucks may have accelerator pedals that do not fully return to the closed throttle position, resulting in engines idling at slightly higher RPMs, which can keep the engine brake from engaging. The investigation was opened following complaints from truck owners. Navistar identified 1,233 warranty clams related to accelerator pedal issues, with 70.3 percent of these claims on manual transmission vehicles.
