Potential Number of Units Affected: 5
Summary: Navistar is recalling certain model year 2012 International DuraStar and Workstar commercial trucks, manufactured from April 26, 2011, through December 19, 2011, and equipped with a 7 degree passenger seat (feature code 16JAJ or SCBA). During a load test, the front passenger seat separated from its mounting rails. Thus, the vehicles failed to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 207, "Seating Systems."
Consequence: In the event of a crash, the seat may may come loose resulting in an increased risk of injury to the seat occupant.
Remedy: Navistar will notify owners, and dealers will replace the seat adjuster rail, anchor plate, and mounting hardware, free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on, or before, December 17, 2012. Owners may contact Navistar at 1-800-448-7825.
