Several Mack Trucks models recalled for power train/steering issue

| 3/10/2016

Mack Trucks is recalling certain models in two separate issues filed with the National Highway Safety Administration, according to NHTSA documents.

The first recall affects Mack Granite and Mack Terrapro trucks model year 2016-2017. The affected trucks may be missing a roll pin to secure the upper steering yoke to the steering shaft. A complete loss of steering may occur, increasing the chances of a crash.

A separate recall affects Mack Granite, Pinnacle CHU, Pinnacle CXU, Terrapro LEU, Terrapro MRU and Titan TD trucks model year 2012-2015 and Mack LR trucks model year 2015. In affected trucks, the cap nut that retains the interaxle driveshaft yoke to the rear axle input shaft may loosen. The driveshaft can possibly disconnect as a result.

Mack will notify owners and replace any parts free of charge. The first recall affecting only Granite and Terrapro trucks is expected to begin on March 11. The other recall is slated for April 15. Owners may contact Mack customer service at 610-709-2131. Recall number for 2016-2017 Granite/Terrapro issues is SC0400. Number for the other recall is SC0399.
