WASHINGTON — PACCAR Incorporated (PACCAR) is recalling certain 2021-24 Kenworth T280, T380, T480, Peterbilt 536, 537 and 548 vehicles due to a braking system issue, according to a recall notice from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
When the brake pedal is fully applied and then released rapidly, the pedal plunger that connects the brake pedal to the brake valve may become disconnected, causing the brakes to fail, according to the recall notice.
The company says that a remedy “is under development.”
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed April 16. Owners may contact Kenworth’s customer service at (425) 828-588 and Peterbilt’s customer service at (940) 591-4220.
