2018 AUTOCAR XPEDITOR - STRUCTURE:FRAME AND MEMBERS
Autocar, LLC. (Autocar) is recalling certain 2014-2018 Xpeditor vehicles manufactured with a single cross-member behind the engine and equipped with a front engine power take off (FEPTO). The mounting brackets of the first cross member behind the engine may fail prematurely due to strain caused by improper spacing between the cross members, causing the supportive cross member to become loose and detach from the frame rails.
HazardIf the cross member fails, the components that it supports may come loose from the vehicle, increasing the risk of crash.
Consumer ActionAutocar will notify owners, and dealers will replace any damaged components as well as install additional support brackets and an additional cross member, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 17, 2020. Owners may contact Autocar's customer service at 1-888-218-3611 or 1-877-973-3486. Autocar's number for this recall is ACX-2003. Note: These vehicles were separated out of the previous Autocar recall (19V-456) due to their unique configuration.
