Caterpillar Recalls CT 660 trucks for missing lights
Report Receipt Date:MAR 12, 2013 NHTSA Campaign Number:13V072000 Component(s):EXTERIOR LIGHTING Potential Number of Units Affected:49 Manufacturer:CATERPILLAR INC
Caterpillar is recalling certain 2012 and 2014 Caterpillar CT660 heavy duty trucks manufactured by Navistar between October 31, 2011, and January 23, 2013. Certain side marker lamps and/or reflective tape were not applied to these vehicles, which have a length of 30 feet or longer. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Missing side marker lamps and/or reflective tape reduces the visibility of the truck to others, which increases the risk of a vehicle crash.
