Mfr's Report Date: JUN 30, 2009
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 09V258000
N/ANHTSA Action Number: N/A
Potential Number of Units Affected: 3,056
Summary: PACCAR IS RECALLING 3,056 Model Year 2009 KENWORTH AND PETERBILT VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH TRW STEERING SHAFTS. MISLOCATION OF A CIRCUMFERENTIAL WELD MAY ALLOW THE SPLINED TUBE AND NON-SPLINED TUBE TO ROTATE RELATIVE TO ONE ANOTHER DURING A LOW SPEED, HIGH TORQUE TURN, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A SEPARATION OF THE TWO TUBES.
Consequence: A SEPARATION OF THE SPLINED AND NON-SPLINED TUBES COULD CAUSE A LOSS OF STEERING CONTROL AND INCREASE THE RISK OF A CRASH.
Remedy: DEALERS WILL INSPECT THE STEERING SHAFT USING A WELD PLACEMENT GAUGE AND MISWELDED STEERING SHAFT WILL BE REPLACED.
Trucks that don't steer are more than a little dangerous. Especially when your living, and your life, depends on your truck. If you've got a lemon Peterbilt truck, don't take a chance. If your dealer gives you the run around, or if the factory won't take care of your truck, get a Burdge attorney. Getting rid of lemon trucks is what we do. Everyday. Since 1978.
