Daimler recalls thousands of Freightliner Cascadias with loose brake caliper mounts

By Land Line staff | 7/18/2018

Daimler Trucks North America has issued a recall for more than 18,000 Freightliner Cascadia trucks. Affected trucks have an issue with brake caliper mounting bolts.

According to National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall documents, certain model year 2018-19 Freightliner Cascadia trucks are affected. The brake caliper mounting bolts on these vehicles may not have been properly tightened, potentially resulting in the caliper detaching.

Daimler will notify owners of affected trucks. Dealers will check the brake caliper mounting bolts and tighten them if needed. Customers will not be charged for the service.

For questions, call Daimler’s customer service at 800-547-0712 with Daimler’s recall number FL-775. NHTSA’s recall number is 18V-411.

Last December, Daimler recalled more than 3,000 model year 2018 Freightliner and Western Star trucks for the same issue. For more information on that recall, click here.
