Thousands of Paccar trucks recalled for rearview mirror issue

By Land Line staff | 6/11/2019

Paccar is recalling certain model year 2020 Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks for an issue regarding rearview mirrors, according to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents.

More specifically, more than 4,000 Kenworth and Peterbilt trucks are affected by the recall.

The mirror glass may detach from the mirror carrier plate because of inadequate adhesion, according to NHTSA. If the mirror glass detaches, the driver may have reduced visibility and the mirror glass will become a road hazard that may strike another vehicle or pedestrian, increasing the risk of a crash or injury.

Affected models include (all model year 2020):

  • Kenworth T680.
  • Kenworth T800.
  • Kenworth W900.
  • Peterbilt 567.
  • Peterbilt 579.

Owners of affected trucks will be notified by Paccar. Dealers will inspect and replace the upper mirror glass and mirror carrier. Recalls began May 31.

For questions regarding Kenworth trucks, call 425-828-5888 with recall number 19KWC. Peterbilt owners can call 940-591-4220 with recall number 19PBC. NHTSA’s number for this recall is 19V-340.
