According to autoevolution.com, Freightliner, a Daimler Truck AG subsidiary since 1981, has announced two safety recalls for their heavy-duty Cascadia and medium-duty M2 tractor trucks. The recall report states that Freightliner received three field reports concerning cracked brake drums. Freightliner conducted an investigation and found that the three incidents of cracked brake drums were due to incompatibility issues with wheel bug specifications. Freightliner then issued a safety recall for several of its vehicles.
According to papers filed with the National Highway Traffic Administration, the recalled M2s were manufactured from November 2, 2019, until June 24, 2021. Freightliner did not state which repairs would be made by its authorized mechanical repair shops. However, the company stated that the recall letters will be sent to owners by April 30, 2022.
Freightliner also received an incident report on February 18, 2022, reporting unresponsive brakes on a Cascadia vehicle used for test driving. Freightliner’s engineers found that the brakes became unresponsive while “resetting the anti-lock braking system’s electronic control unit” while operating the truck at low speeds. Freightliner has opened an investigation into this issue. The initial report states that the anti-lock braking system software will be updated on those vehicles.
