Navistar is recalling nearly 21,000 trucks. The recall involves certain 2019 International HV, MV, 2018-2019 HX, LT, RH, LoneStar, ProStar, WorkStar, and 2018 TranStar automated manual transmission vehicles. These trucks may be equipped with certain Eaton ECA heavy-duty truck clutches. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says an internal component in the clutch assembly may fail, possibly resulting in unintended vehicle movement which could lead to a crash. Navistar will notify owners and dealers will recalibrate the Transmission Control Module free of charge. The recall is expected to start January 18th 2019.
