PORTLAND — Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) is recalling 460 2022 model Freightliner Cascadia trucks due to faulty installation of the exhaust pipe outlet.
According to a news release from DTNA, the exhaust tip may be facing towards the battery box that’s mounted directly above the frame rail.
The company said that no remedy has been established for the issue.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on Nov. 14. Owners may contact DTNA’s customer service at 1-800-547-0712. DTNA’s number for this recall is FL-901.
This is the second major recall of Cascadia trucks in September.

Why hasn’t Daimler recalled all their trucks over exhaust issues? As well as their faulty electrical systems that have burned thousands of trucks to the ground. Why are there no lawyers to represent us as consumers in cases of being robbed by freightliner for engineering catastrophe and prive gouging? Please by all means respond to me. I have alot of proof over these pieces of garbage!
