WORKHORSE ( 10V348000 )

August 1, 2010

Vehicle Make / Model: Model Year(s): WORKHORSE / W22 2011

Manufacturer: NAVISTAR, INC Mfrís Report Date: JUL 27, 2010

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 10V348000 N/A NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE STORAGE TANK ASSEMBLY

Potential Number of Units Affected: 1328

Summary: NAVISTAR IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 WORKHORSE W22 AND R26 TRUCKS MANUFACTURED FROM FEBRUARY 5, 2007 THROUGH MAY 24, 2010. THE FUEL-FILL CAP ASSEMBLIES USED TO SEAL THE UNUSED SIDE OF THE DUAL-FILL GASOLINE FUEL TANK WERE PRODUCED WITH A HOSE MATERIAL THAT DID NOT MEET DESIGN SPECIFICATIONS.

It looks like I did'nt get the only bad fill-cap hose. Workhorse did call me, after my post on irv2 and report, and offered to fix it. I had made the repair so no need to do it again.

The response time from report in May 2010 to a full recall by 20 august 2010 is quite good for the fuel leak/and emission problem.

Let's hope the brakes get fixed someday soon.

gg, Leaves no doubt as to whom is looking into what's going on in these threads! It would appear that good, bad or indifferent not an opportunity is missed to see what Workhorse owners are saying.

Since GG and I have the same coach, I guess it is time to check this out.

1st step will be to make sure that we got registered when ownership changed.

Are you still up north GG?

I've got a 2008 outlaw on the workhorse 24K chassis that had the duel fill tank on it with a leaky hose on the "capped" side. Workhorse was kind enough to send out a replacement hose which fixed the problem of leaking whenever the tank was full of fuel, or at an absurd angle. (I like corners, what can I say?). Happy with their fast response, fast shipping and easy installation. Hard part? Getting the clamp off the old one, because the hose clamp screw is at the top of the hose, and hard to get to. My solution? 10 seconds with a dremel removed the old hose clamp, and I had bought a new one to replace it.
