RV Daily Report
-- Navistar, Inc is recalling one model year 2008 Safari Simba diesel RV manufactured on June 29, 2007, equipped with Bosch hydraulic brakes
. Hydraulic brake equipped motorhome chassis exposed to long periods of time of non-driving may experience diametrical brake caliper piston growth and reduced piston to bore clearance, potentially leading to brake drag and overheating, resulting in reduced brake performance.
Reduced brake performance increases the risk of a crash.
Navistar will notify the owners, and an Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) dealer will inspect and, as necessary, replace the brake calipers free of charge. Owners may contact DTNA at 1.800.547.0712.
Customers may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1.888.327.4236 (TTY 1.800.424.9153), or go to www.safercar.gov
