Ford is recalling certain 2017-2018 Super Duty F-250, F-350 and F-450 4x4 vehicles over concerns of possible driveshaft failure.
A radial damper inside the driveshaft may move out of position over time, which can cause a driveshaft imbalance and result in a fracture. A fractured driveshaft can cause a loss of drive power. Additionally, a vehicle rollaway could occur while parked if the parking brake is not engaged. Either of these scenarios increases the risk of a crash.
NHTSA says potentially 18,808 units are affected by the recall.
Dealers will replace the driveshaft, free of charge. Interim owner notification letters informing owners of the safety risk were mailed December 12, 2022. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed January 9, 2023. Owners may contact Ford customer service at 1-866-436-7332. Ford's number for this recall is 22S74.
Hino Motors Sales USA is recalling certain 2022-2023 NE7A, NJ7A, NJ7B, and NV7A vehicles equipped with a 50-gallon fuel tank.
The fuel pickup tube may contact the bottom of the tank, restricting the uptake of fuel to the engine. Restricted fuel update can cause an engine stall, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 970 units are affected by the recall.
Dealers will replace the fuel tube, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on February 3, 2023. Owners may contact Hino's customer service at 1-248-699-9390. Hino's number for this recall is AASJ0.
