2021 FREIGHTLINER 108SD - EQUIPMENT:OTHER:LABELS | TIRES

Daimler Trucks North America LLC (DTNA) is recalling certain 2020-2021 Western Star 4700 and 4900 and Freightliner Coronado, 108SD and 114SD vehicles. The vehicle certification label contains incorrect information, stating a Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) that exceeds the tire capacity rating. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 120, "Wheels and Rims-Other than passenger cars."

  • Hazard
    Incorrect weight rating information on the certification labels could result in potential overloading of the axles, increasing the risk of a crash.
  • Consumer Action
    DTNA will notify owners, and dealers will install accurate GAWR labels, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 12, 2020. Owners may contact DTNA customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA's number for this recall is FL-864.
