2009-2012 Freightliner Cascadia Recall, Danger
Summary:
 Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling certain model year 2009-2012 Freightliner, Sterling, and Western Star vehicles manufactured from July 7, 2008, through December 15, 2011, and equipped with perpendicular air tank mounting brackets. The air tank mounting brackets may develop cracks which can lead to the air tank brackets separating from the frame rail. The air tanks may also separate from the vehicle.

Consequence:
 Air tanks that become separated from a moving vehicle may create a road debris hazard, increasing the risk of a crash.
