Autocar Recalls Xpeditor Vehicles Due to Concerns over Brakes
Defective service brakes are prompting a recall from Autocar.
The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2013-2016 Xpeditor vehicles. The affected vehicles are configured with dual-drive, right-hand-stand-up cabs. In these vehicles, the locking cotter pin on the brake pedal mounting bracket may not be fully engaged.
This condition will allow the brake pedal to detach, increasing the risk of a crash.
Autocar believes that about 1,000 vehicles are impacted by this flaw.
Autocar will notify owners, and dealers will correct the installation of, or install, the cotter pin, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 16, 2016.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Autocar customer service at (765) 489-5499.
