Risk of Fire Prompts Freightliner Cascadia To Recall Almost 9000 Trucks
Freightliner Cascadia issued a voluntary recall due to a defect that could increase the risk of fire.
Diamler Trucks NA voluntarily recalled 8,865 March 24, 2015 – Nov. 9, 2016 build Cascadia trucks due to a concern regarding the Bergstrom Parksmart HVAC units as they could overheat and create a fire.
Truck owners will be notified officially by Diamler starting in May, and will inform owners that dealers will be replacing the compressor caps that seems to be the culprit for free. If there is heat damage noticed, they may replace the harness as well.
