According to a series of different news sources, the International and Durastar vehicles manufactured by Navistar, Inc. are being recalled.
All units of the 2013 models are being recalled due to serious defects related to the improper sealing of the windshield and black light glass found in these vehicles. Presently, there are 1,298 models that may pose a serious injury risk to drivers and passengers.
The 2013 potentially defective vehicle models fail to comply with federal standards and according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, safety concerns related to the defective primer sealing could render the windshield or black light glass loose, which could pose a risk if the glass becomes detached and falls.
Proper bonding of the windshields is vital, since the present bonding may cause injury or death and for that reason, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed that the company will be providing repairs to all recalled vehicles for free.
I encourage you to never refrain from ignoring a recall announcement for it could pose a serious risk to your loved ones.
