Isuzu has announced a recall for trucks due to a labeling mistake.

The manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2016 NPR-HD, NPR-XD, NQR, and NRR trucks equipped with 5.2L diesel engines. The certification label on the affected vehicles may have errors in the rim size, tire pressure, and weight information that may prevent the owner from accurately loading and maintaining the vehicle. These mistakes put the vehicles in violation with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

If the rim size, tire pressure, and weight information cannot be referenced and understood, the owner may overload the vehicle or underinflate the tires. These conditions may increase the risk of a crash.

The company believes that about 20 trucks are impacted by this error.

Isuzu will provide owners with a corrected certification label, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Isuzu customer service at (866) 441-9638.
