Brake Imbalance Can Lead to Overheating in Mack Granite Truck
Mack Trucks, Inc. is issuing a recall for vehicles due to braking issues.
The manufacturer's recall applies to certain model year 2010-2016 Granite 4X2 trucks. Due to a brake imbalance between the steer and drive axle brakes, the rear brakes may overheat.
If the rear brakes overheat there would be an increased risk of a tire blowout or a wheel-end fire.
Company representatives believe that almost 700 trucks are potentially impacted by this defect.
Mack will notify owners, and dealers will replace either the brake chambers on the steer axles or the drive axles to correct the imbalance, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 25, 2016.
Owners with questions about this recall can contact Mack customer service at (800) 528-6586.
