The company Mack Trucks, Inc. has revealed in the report released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that model year 2012 to 2013 GU trucks are being recalled.
According to the news, the vehicles in question were manufactured between February 12th, 2010 and January 18th, 2012 and they may be equipped with faulty components that may affect the vehicle’s service brakes and the air-supply-check valve, which could possibly lead to an internal leakage.
The brake application could also overheat and lead to a probable loss of driver’s control, which could cause a crash.
Since there isn’t a permanent remedy for this particular issue, the company is offering a temporary repair until the company is capable of developing a real answer for this issue. Recalled truck owners are advised they should contact the company as soon as possible.
