recall of trucks

The Australian Competition & Consumer Commission has issued a safety recall notice for Western Star trucks fitted with Detroit Diesel DD15 engines that were sold in Australia from January 1, 2010, through to November 30, 2020.

The recall affects 2918 vehicles.

According to the ACCC those trucks may develop a fuel leak from the engine’s high-pressure fuel rail feed lines, which “may cause a subsequent engine fire, which could result in serious injury or death to vehicle occupants and other road users”.

The ACCC said affected owners should contact their authorised Western Star truck dealer to arrange for the replacement of the two high-pressure fuel rail feed lines and supporting hardware.
