NHTSA commercial vehicle recalls for the week of Aug. 1, 2022.


The following safety recalls were issued Monday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA): 

  • Alliance RV is recalling certain 2023 Paradigm and Valor travel trailers. The electric retractable awning has a welded seam on the fabric that may separate, potentially allowing the awning to drop beyond normal operation. An awning that drops or extends beyond normal operation can increase the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 2,319 units are affected by the recall.
  • Blue Bird Body Company is recalling certain 2018-2022 All American and Vision school buses equipped with Cummins PD7000 Electric Drivetrains containing an electric air compressor. The air compressor housing is improperly grounded, causing electrical voltage greater than 50V AC during operation. An improperly grounded air compressor can cause electric shock, increasing the risk of injury. NHTSA says potentially 482 units are affected by the recall.
  • Ember Recreational Vehicles is recalling certain 2022 Overland series trailers, model numbers 191MDB, 190MDB, 170MBH, and 170MRB. The quick disconnect fittings in the LP gas system may be cracked, causing a gas leak. A gas leak in the presence of an ignition source can increase the risk of a fire. NHTSA says potentially 130 units are affected by the recall.
  • Isuzu Motors Limited is recalling certain 2022 FTR and FVR trucks. A programming error in the ECM software calibration, resulted in the vehicles not having engine braking functionality. Without engine braking, a driver may experience longer stopping distances than expected, increasing the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 11 units are affected by the recall.
  • Lion Electric Company is recalling certain 2020-2022 Lion C school buses. The parking brake may fail if it is not properly adjusted. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 105, “Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems.” Failure of the parking brake increases the risk of a crash. NHTSA says potentially 39 units are affected by the recall.
